TANZOT is a great place to make life long friends, get helpful advice and receive support when needed.


Australia – New Zealand Society of Texas (TANZOT) is a cultural and social organization formed over 30 years ago by Australians and New Zealanders living in Houston.

TANZOT hosts a variety of social events for couples, singles, children and families throughout the year.  There are also events held for traditional Australian and New Zealand celebrations like Australia and Waitangi Day as well as an ANZAC Day commemorative service.

You don't have to be Australian or a New Zealander to join as TANZOT welcomes people of all nationalities in the Houston area. 

If you are interested in our cultures or have visited our beautiful countries, you are invited to join our fun group.
