Join now

Our online hobby groups are just like traditional hobby groups. Members make friends, enjoy themes and topics, newsletters, resources and events. The only difference is the groups are hosted entirely online, so people anywhere in Australia can join in easily.

If you are feeling isolated, lonely or are searching for more JOY in your life then our hobby groups are perfect for you! You will feel connected and part of a community from the comfort of your own home. 

Whether you love books, gardening, cooking or just socialising, you will find your community here. The groups are easy to join and easy to navigate, and we are always here to help make sure you get the most out of your membership!

Our online Book Club is a community. It is the perfect place for people who love to relish in beautiful novels, to share their thoughts, recommendations and try some new titles. Whether you are an avid reader or would like to be, our Book Club is the place to find your motivation.  

Monthly membership gives you access to our exclusive community area, weekly newsletters and resources, an end of month virtual club meeting and special guests. The club allows you to immerse yourself in a community from the cosiness of your own home. 

Share your love of reading with others, let some magic into your life through the pages of some brilliant novels.

Read your way to happiness.

If you find joy in cooking and are looking for meaningful connection our online Cooking Club is the perfect place for you. It is not a course on cooking, or a workshop, it is a community. A beautifully inclusive group where a range of tasty cuisines, styles and flavours are explored every month through group chats, emails, newsletters and a virtual cooking event.

Our Cooking Club allows you to immerse yourself in a community from the cosiness of your own home and join the likes of Anneka Manning and Sophie Hansen in their kitchens too. 

Gather our recipes and get yourself set for some new taste sensations – what could be nicer than sharing your love of cooking?

Cooking teacher Julia Child said, “People who love to eat are always the best people.” And isn't this true!

Our Garden Club is a community. A place for people who adore plants, gardens, colour and the  beauty of nature. Our club is for gardeners of all ages and interests, whether you’d like to grow the tastiest veggies, bring to life an ornamental garden, transform a bleak balcony into a cheerful wave of colour or get started on your very first plot. 

It is simply a place of joy and gentle learning, celebrating plants, flowers and gardens of all descriptions. Being able to enjoy conversations with some other people who grow and how they grow and what lights them up. Membership gives access to an exclusive community area, weekly newsletters, group chat, resources and guides, and an end of month virtual event.

Grow your way to happiness. 

A virtual coffee catchup every Thursday afternoon and an end-of-month Friday night meeting.

The perfect antidote to feeling a little isolated or lonely. 

Whether you share a courtyard with your nearest neighbour, or a distance that spans for miles, our Social Club is a place to find connection, community and friendship. 

Every Thursday afternoon members can choose to log in to a virtual coffee catchup, and at the end of every month the club meets to connect and chat about the month, share stories, laugh at new ventures and offer virtual support. It’s a place of belonging and it’s always open and hopeful for new members who could look and sound just like you. 

Be part of this positive, inclusive community from the comfort of your own home.

“The Cooking Club has been a refreshing experience! My husband bought me a yearly membership (he must have been getting tired of listening to me chat about cooking!) I have done lots of courses before and workshops, and didn't really find them very fun or engaging, but this is so so different.

This has a little learning, but it is mostly just about the community. About sharing a love of food and cooking, sharing recipes, connecting with people all over the country and just having fun. The monthly meeting for me is a highlight. This month we all logged on and cooked in our own kitchens and had the pleasure of having Sophie Hansen as a special guest. I had so much fun.”

“I joined the Book Club in April and it has given me so much pleasure. I really enjoy the variety of books, I have found myself grateful that I am reading varied books that I likely would never have chosen for myself. But most of all I have found the sense of community to be a life saver. Members are always happy to chat and the monthly meeting on zoom is so much fun. It is now a firm event in my calender that I look forward to each month."
