5 Reasons to move to Australia

by Sam Hopwood | Jul 08, 2016
  • Australia has long been one of the most popular countries for those looking to emigrate. We look at five of the top reasons that people keep flocking Down Under.

    1. Career opportunities

    Over the last few decades, Australia’s economy has remained strong, even throughout the financial crisis of 2007 – 2008. Its proximity to Asia also helps ensure future economic growth. With low unemployment and skills shortages in many professional and trade occupations, it’s no surprise that Australia is a popular choice for skilled workers looking to come to the country on long-term work visas.

    2. Quality of life

    With plenty of fresh air, a low population and spectacular scenery, Australia’s natural beauty has enticed many to call the country home. With over 36,000 kilometres of coastline, vibrant cities and almost every outdoor activity imaginable – whether you’re looking for a cosmopolitan suburb or the chance to explore the hundreds of national parks, there is something for everyone.

    3. Cultural diversity

    Australia is an extremely multicultural society and migrants are welcomed. About 43% of Australians were either born overseas or have a parent who was born overseas.

    4. Safety

    Australia’s crime rate is relatively low, making it a safe place to live – especially for those raising a family.

    5. Climate

    Boasting a temperate climate, with mild winters and warm to hot summers, Australia is a sun-lover’s dream. The north of the country is quite tropical, with the south quite cool in winter and hot and dry in summer.

    Cold-weather fans won’t be disappointed either, as Victoria and New South Wales enjoy a regular snow season in the high country during winter.
