@Vlad: Welcome! It's great to have you! I can't wait to get to know you more!

@AmandaCourtenay: Welcome to Furstralia and the furry fandom! Please feel free to ask if there's anything you'd like to know about the fandom or about anything around these forums either publically or via PM, whichever you're more comfortable with!

There certainly aren't many children in the fandom the age of your daughter but there are a few! Being furry can be a lot of fun and a great way to socialise and meet people! Essentially furries are just people that enjoy art and other media featuring anthropomorphic animals. It's a great opportunity for us to be creative and share and develop our talents while bonding through our mutual love of cartoony animals! So I'm sure you and your daughter will find a lot to love in the fandom. :) But again, feel free to ask about anything at all that you'd like to know!

G'day, My name is Linnie.

I'm 17 years old and I'm from Wollongong, NSW. I've been in the furry fandom for about a month and I've only just recently discovered this site through AusFurs on Facebook.

I've always loved the anthro stuff but never really called myself a furry until just recently. My favourite one would have to be Brother Bear, and I've also been a fan of Bolt, Lion King for a long time.

My non-furry likes would be trains/railroading/trainspotting, trucks and 3D modelling on the computer. I play a fair bit of Garry's mod and Factorio in most of my spare time.

I do a fair bit of drawing at school and sometimes at home. At home though, mostly I'll be playing games on the PC. I draw mostly huskies and stuff like that, mainly feral because I haven't learnt the human figure yet, but I'll work it out eventually.

My fursona isn't really much at the moment, His name is Memska though and his species is a spexta. The words memska and spexta were a bit of a meme between me and an old mate, but he's long gone now. I wanna make some friends on this site but it's hard for me as I don't usually have a lot to say. I've been resilient to get set up to go to cons, one my mum doesn't want me that far out of the house at my age, and two I would rather go up with some mates.

Thanks guys, that's me, hope I can hear from you soon. It would be amazing to meet you guys :)

Baii~

Hey, welcome, Linnie! It's great to have you! I'm sure you'll make friends here easily! If you spend a lot of time on the PC we have a skype chat which you'd be welcome to join and you can make friends there too!

I think your sona looks interesting so far and I'd love to hear more about what a spexta is! It'll be great to have you around here! Feel free to ask if I can do anything to help you settle in!

Howdy! My names Toxi De Vyne! ^^ I'm a 27 year old SFW furry artist from Brisbane, Australia and I specialize in pin up portraits, drawing furries wearing clothes and detailed backgrounds. I recently quit my day job to pursue art as a full time career! I'm a fairly regular attendee of brisbanes SBFM meet, Furry Down Under and am excited to be attending my first Confurgence in January 2017 as a Dealer :D (I am also shit scared ahahahaha)

My FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/toxi/
My Facebook page: http://facebook.com/misstoxi

So uh. I like Green... A LOT. You'd be able to spot me from a mile away as I will usually be dressed and accessorized head to toe in green, including my lime green hair. I also enjoy clothes... A LOT. My signature style is vintage/rockabilly but I dabble occasionally in other sub culture styles as well. Hoping to learn a bit more about the Aussie furry community and get a bit more connected :)

This is my fursona Miss Toxi De Vyne :3

G'day!
I'm Alexander.
I'm an 18-year-old guy (turning 19 in a few days, actually) from South Australia.
I spend most of my time on Steam and Discord, talking to people and sometimes playing games.
I also try to make 3D models sometimes, and am looking to take up sewing as a hobby.
What I'd love to do is build myself a fursuit, head over to a furry convention, and just have fun there.

Here's a ref sheet of my fursona. I commissioned Stripe13 on deviantART to draw it. :-D

I hope to be able to make a few friends on this forum! :-D
