The country is known for its beautiful beaches and great weather. But it's much more than just that. This is why you should consider moving to Australia:
QUALITY OF LIFE
Australia has a fabulous way of life that is unlike any other country. This includes the weather, shorter working hours, and more public holidays. Full-time employees should not work more than an average of 38 hours per week. This makes it easier to find a healthy balance between life and work. The higher wages are also an advantage, which generally allows you to have a comfortable daily life.
THE OUTDOOR LIFE
There are so many things to do in Australia, from the spectacular mountains to the sunsets and coastlines that will take your breath away! If you're looking for something more than just scenery though there are always amazing markets with delicious food on offer or open-air cinemas where people can enjoy films under the stars. Besides, the local authorities pay for gas and maintenance of the public BBQs which are always well-cared for and completely free to use, which gives Australians another way to share great times together outside.
FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING CULTURE
Australia is a country of immigration, with people from all over the world! Thanks to that, what you’ll find is a genuine culture that welcomes newcomers with open arms. You will find that Australians are laid-back, informal and very open to making new friends.
GREAT PLACE TO MOVE IN WITH YOUR KIDS
Australia is a great place to explore and have fun with your kids. With so many activities, you'll be able to find something for any age and it will be easy to keep them busy!
When it comes to education, Australian schools offer first-class programs. The Australian Government offers free or subsidized education, and from the age of 5 up to 18 (very similar to the UK) children are expected to attend school.
LARGE BRITISH EXPAT COMMUNITY
Did you know Australia has the second-largest population of British expats? The likelihood you’ll bump into another British is almost a certainty. Bakery pies, fish & chips, BBQs, having a pint at the pub…these are all British habits which Australia still embraces wholeheartedly. It'll always feel like home!
Australia is a proud sporting nation, as if you're a sports fan we’re sure you know! Over the years England and Australia have competed against each other on the cricket, football and rugby fields. If you are moving to Australia, be sure to head to a live game or your local pub for the best atmosphere. There is no better way to make new friends!
GREAT HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
The Australian healthcare system is known to be efficient and excellent. Whether you are a permanent resident or hold a temporary visa, the Australian Medicare provides free or reduced prices for doctor’s appointments, medicine and essential hospital treatment for UK citizens, due to the UK and Australia having a reciprocal healthcare agreement in place. Furthermore, the government encourages everyone to take out private health insurance with tax breaks.
Australia has one of the most stable economies in the world with great career opportunities. If you ever dreamed of moving to OZ, there's no reason to put it off any longer.
