TANZOT is organised by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, who wish to make it easy for people to connect in Houston. There are a variety of events and celebrations throughout the year which you can attend. These include:

  • Monthly ladies luncheons  - The luncheons are either held at a member’s home for a pot luck or themed lunch or at a restaurant of the hosts choosing. 

  • Monthly restaurant nights - At the moment these are Ladies nights out and usually at a different restaurant each time. We try and have it in a different location as often as we can as our members are spread all over Houston. 

  • Social drinks, trivia and pub nights.

  • Australia / Waitangi Day celebrations - This is a combined celebration that is usually a BBQ either at a park or a member’s home and is a very popular event. 

  • Easter family picnic - This is run by the play group but is open to all members and is a fun event with lots of activities for the kids and of course an Easter egg hunt.

  • Anzac Day Commemoration Service - This is held at either Bear Creek War Memorial or the Houston National Cemetery. The service includes speeches, special guests, hymns, wreath laying and the last post. This is followed by drinks at a local establishment and the great ANZAC biscuit bake off!

  • Halloween party - A fun relaxed event for everyone (dress up is optional).

  • Melbourne Cup Event - This is combined with the monthly November luncheon and involves food, bubbles, hats and of course betting on and watching the race.

  • Christmas Parties - We run a Christmas party for the kids and then have a separate adult only party.

  • AFL Grand Final party - We usually meet at a pub that is screening the game.

  • Activities and adventures for singles.

We also have a number of organized groups which meet regularly. These include:

  • Playgroup - for families with young children. They meet every Wednesday morning at a member’s home or a child friendly venue around Houston.

  • Coffee mornings - The coffee mornings are held monthly at Phoenicia Deli and Coffee House. 

  • Book Club - Meet once a month usually the last Wednesday of the month at 10 am and discuss that month’s book among many other things. 

  • Golf Group - Hosted once a month on Sundays for interested members.

  • Dogs Day Out - A monthly catch up at a local dog park.
