Top round-up of Meetup groups for separated parents

So its a long weekend and you don't have the kids or invitations to join other families for a BBQ or drinks? It's time to meet new people and Meetup is the best way to find others in the same situation as you. We've rounded up the key Meetups for separated/divorced parents around Australia, but if nothing rocks your boat, join groups with shared interests and you'll have a busier social life in your 'off days*' than before you went separate ways.
