Est. 2015 in Townsville, NQ
Aussie Women’s Social Circle started life in early 2015 under the name Townsville Women. Focused solely on Townsville to begin with, founder Bec Townsend spent almost five years growing and nurturing an active community.

In mid-2019, Townsville Women went through a complete brand change to become the Aussie Women’s Social Circle: a space for women from all around Australia to connect and network. The heart and soul of the Townsville Women concept remains the same – to provide a platform where budding authors can publish articles, everyday women can become event organisers, and business owners can promote themselves without breaking the bank.
The AWSC welcomes everyone to get involved in some way to create a collaborative resource where the focus is social networking.
Meeting friends as an adult sucks. As a kid you can walk up to another kid and say ‘Hey cool superman cape’ and immediately you’ve got a new best friend. Then we grow up and we discover this friending business is freakin’ awkward and hard work!
Australia is a pretty big country and when we spread our wings to flee the nest of home, we often find ourselves moving away from family and childhood support networks. This only adds to the modern day crisis that is loneliness – even though we feel surrounded by people, we find ourselves lacking a ‘village’.
Today’s world sees us being heavily connected, yet simultaneously disconnected and isolated. Social Media allows us to stalk our old boyfriends from high school, but how many of our Facey ‘friends’ would be willing to meet up for a friendly chat over a bottle of vino if you asked them?
Well, let me introduce you to the group you’ve been waiting for!
The Aussie Women’s Social Circle is all about connecting online – but we extend that connection by kickin’ it old school’ and actually meeting up in the real world too! We are a casual bunch with no hefty membership fees, no need to organise a babysitter, and no need to wear designer clothes.
We focus on small, casual events that are a low-pressure way to meet new people. All across Australia we’ll be enjoying a cuppa or a feed together, and talking about anything that comes to mind. It’s not a business networking group, it’s not a sports group, or a craft group, or even a mums group.
It’s a little bit of everything all rolled into one. It is social networking for real women!
Getting involved with the AWSC can be done in various ways.
Write, Host, Network, or Advertise…

Want to share your story? Share it with us!
The AWSC is an open platform on which we invite Australian based bloggers, writers, and other creatives to share their articles. We publish general topic articles at no cost and each article is fully credited to the author. We love to publish interviews with Australian women in business and community and learn more about their lives to inspire our readers. Many of our contributors use our website as a way to grow awareness for charity or community initiative, build their personal brand, drive traffic to their own websites to boost SEO, or as a way to share their industry expertise in a non-salesy way.
Each article published on our blog is shared throughout our network on various social media pages, and within our weekly newsletter. General blogs are added to our repeated evergreen content schedule and enjoy several re-shares per year.
