and much more.


A highlight every year is the Melbourne Cup Charity Luncheon held on the first Tuesday in November.


ANZWG is also well known for its community service work, fundraising efforts and two impressive publications The Bangkok Guide: the Essential Guide to Living in Bangkok and Bangkok Guide: Relocation Essentials.

  • An e-copy of our bi-monthly magazine, InTouch, with member news, a calendar of events, interviews, articles on Thai culture and language, out-and-about stories, recipes, and much more.

If you are in Bangkok with a baby or toddler, ANZWG has an active playgroup you can join called 'Kiwalas'. The group is a great help to new arrivals to Bangkok and provides a launching pad for friendships and a ready made network of people who have children of similar ages to socialise with.


Activities range from family picnics to kid-free dinners, as well as indoor play outings and cultural tours. Most children who currently attend are between 18 months to 3 years however this is constantly evolving.
