The current Belgian-Australian community in Australia is relatively small. The community is characterised by individuals mostly looking for business or employment opportunities in various industries and professions.
Belgian-Australians in New South Wales are considerably dispersed, but larger numbers are located in the Sydney, Hornsby, Warringah, Ku-ring-gai, Sutherland Shire and Gosford areas. The Belgian born and those with Belgian ancestry in Australia constitute the largest expatriate settlement in the Asia‑Pacific region.
