Swiss Down Under is the brainchild of Swiss Lawyer Carmen Trochsler, who 'temporarily' moved to Australia in 2010. She is a Delegate of the Council of the
Swiss Abroad for Australia since 2015.
The idea for a practical and easy to navigate online platform was born from the personal experience of the challenges of moving to Australia, the need for reliable information and the wish to share helpful links and information amongst the Swiss community on one single page.
Having met other expats it came apparent, that all spend a lot of time on researching about the same issues and that many Swiss are not aware of great services, products and community support available.
Swiss Down Under gives the abundance of information a structure and points into the right directions. It's not about reinventing the wheel, it is about sharing the good things that are here already!
CSA Oceania, the council of the Swiss abroad delegates for the Oceania region have a website! Created in October 2016 to improve information exchange and be present as delegates online.
