Friendships are built... both amongst the American students who travel together, and of course with the Australian partners, and with families and people in the Sutherland Shire.

The Lakewood Sister Cities exchange took me on adventures I had previously never dreamed of. I made lifelong friendships and was able to see the heart of Sydney with my host family and friends. The people I had the opportunity to build relationships with were warm and welcoming, and I would go back in an instant if the opportunity presents itself!

My Australian experience was by far one of the best things I've done in my life. I got to closely connect with my host family, and made new life-long friends on the other side of the world. The trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru and other places let me see parts of Australia I had never been exposed to. I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone!

I had a great time learning about rugby and cricket while munching on some savory meat pies. I enjoyed living with a new family and gaining an Aussie sense of humor.
