Welcome Dinner at “The Couch”
The first City of Melbourne Welcome Dinner was held in the heart of the CBD at The Couch, based at The Salvation Army Melbourne Project 614’s Hamodava Cafe. The night was enjoyed by 30 newly arrived and established Australians living, working or studying in the CBD area. Melbourne’s CBD is an incredibly diverse place and over half of the students living and studying in the CBD are international students. Not surprisingly, it was a youthful dinner and we enjoyed an overflowing pool table of foods and great conversation. Special thanks to The Couch for hosting the dinner and for the City of Melbourne for supporting the event.
