There are a number of Australian VA Networks available to VAs in Australia and we encourage you to visit them to find which ones suit you best. Each have their own discussion forums and client referrals for their membership base. Each are run by VAs who have been in the industry for several years here in Australia. While we don’t pass on client referrals via this site, we will be building a membership directory so that prospective clients can contact members direct, if they wish.
