Australia is one of the most popular destinations in the world when it comes to migration – and it’s little wonder!
Each year, thousands of people flock here – ready to start fresh and embrace the Aussie way of life.
If you’re thinking of migrating to Australia then you’re probably wondering what exactly the Land Down Under has to offer.
So, here’s why we think moving here will be the best decision you ever made!
The Australian Climate
If it’s sunshine you’re after then we’ve got plenty of it! Summers are hot across most of the country, with daytime temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius on average in January. If you like it hot, head to the Northern Territory, and if you prefer cooler climes, make Melbourne top of your list.
Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
Australia has had an employment boom in recent years, thanks mostly to the thriving resources sector. While things have cooled a little of late – and haven’t been helped by the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic – there are still plenty of opportunities for people working in critical sectors such as health, education and agriculture.
Australia is blessed with some of the world’s most spectacular stretches of coastline. Imagine….white sandy beaches lapped by warm, turquoise waters – right on your doorstep. Some of the country’s most famous beaches include Bondi Beach, Byron Bay Beach, Perth’s Cottesloe Beach and 75 Mile Beach. Australia is home to more than 10,000 beaches. If you visit a different one every week, it will take you almost 200 years to get through them all. It’s not unusual to arrive at the beach in Australia and find that you’ve got the place to yourself; there really are that many.
The Australian landscape is nothing short of breathtaking. Whichever direction you go in, you’re sure to encounter a spectacular natural attraction. Fraser Island, The Great Barrier Reef, The Pinnacles, The Whitsunday Islands, The Kimberley and The Blue Mountains are just some of the jaw-dropping places you can visit. And let’s not forget Uluru, the sacred Australian rock formation that’s also known as Ayers Rock.
Quality of Life
Australia is consistently ranked as one of the best countries in the world in terms of quality of life. Average disposable income per household is $28,884 and life expectancy is 82 years, thanks to the high standard of healthcare on offer here. Australia regularly tops global indexes in relation to ‘liveability’, healthcare and education.
Australia truly does have a multicultural society and people from all walks of life are warmly embraced here. In every Australian suburb you’ll find a wide variety of international cuisine on offer, as well as community groups and specialist food stores.
For people moving to Australia, a great way to meet new people is to join a sporting club. You’ll certainly find no shortage of leisure activities on offer here. Whether you enjoy hiking, running, soccer, tennis or even gymnastics – it’s all here. It’s probably fair to say that Aussies are obsessed by sport! At the heart of every town and village is the footy oval.
Australia’s education system is world-class. From pre-school right through to university, there are learning options to suit everyone. Australia is home to the University of Melbourne, which was ranked number 39 in the world in 2019.
The laidback Aussie lifestyle is one of the main reasons people choose to emigrate here. Australians cherish their family time and really make the most of their weekends, enjoying BBQs, picnics and time at the beach. Fortunately, Australia is blessed with many attractions that don’t cost a lot to enjoy.
Let’s not forget the Australians themselves. They’re a friendly and open-minded bunch with a great sense of humour.
