Tamikya Van Der Wel, ESL Australia's Community Manager for League of Legends tipped us off, with a tweet pointing to the official announcement:

Riot Games Sydney is official. Known for its beaches, opera house, sports scene and friendly-looking marsupials, we’re excited to introduce a little bit of riotousness to Australia’s biggest city.

The Sydney studio joins locations in the U.S., Ireland, South Korea, Brazil, Turkey and Russia - and is currently hiring for a regional Community Manager and an eSports Coordinator.

The new location and staff will work hard to create unique experiences for gamers - both on the web and on the ground - and while the initial announcement is brief, we're reassured that Riot Games Sydney is just getting started, and will have plenty more to share very soon.
