Catering for everyone from beginners and hobbyists, to implementers and developers, Australian Joomla User Groups have been delivering informative and educational sessions on dozens of Joomla topics since 2008. Our recent switch to online meetings due to COVID-19 has expanded the reach of presenters and enabled a more diverse audience, with visitors now joining each month from around the globe.

Our main monthly AVJUG is on the 3rd Tuesday each month at 6pm AEST (UTC 0800) and announced via JoomlaAU, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney Meetup groups, our JoomlaAU social media, and in the Joomla Australia Newsletter.

If you would like to suggest topics or volunteer to present, joining the JoomlaAU Meetup and send us a message. You can watch previous session replays below, as well as watch for upcoming events when they're announced.
