    Australia being such a large country, we have encouraged each State to form their own MC network which then links into a National network. So far, MC networks have been established in South Australia (SA), Victoria (Vic), New South Wales (NSW) and a fledgling one in Queensland (Qld).

    The NSW network meets monthly at different locations in Sydney.
    Contact: Sue Giles, sue.giles(at)

    The Vic network meets bi-monthly at different locations in Melbourne.
