Do you have dreams of moving to Australia? Or maybe you’d just love to take a trip to explore the Land Down Under!
Some people see Australia as a place teeming with deadly animals and want to keep well away, but the country has so much more to offer than the fear of being eaten by a snake while you sleep!
We’re going to take a look at some of the best reasons to visit or move to Australia, so like a kangaroo, let’s hop right in!
1. Incredible Views Everywhere
Whether you want to see an amazing sunset, sheer mountain faces, rugged forests, or a beautiful hazy coast, then Australia can show you all of these!
Australia is a huge country. The population is around 25 million. Compare this to the United Kingdom, which is around 32 times smaller but has a whopping 67 million people!
This means that there are vast landscapes to explore and you’ll be largely uninterrupted. Take a long hike for some spectacular views, or relax and enjoy a coastal vista.
2. Varied Climate
Because Australia is so large, you can experience a huge range of climates. The East Coast especially gives you the experience of the four seasons. Summers are warm and sunny, and the winters are cold and frosty.
Remember, though, that the seasons are inverted! Because Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere, you’ll be celebrating Christmas in the summer!
3. Good Balance Between Life and Work
Australia has a strong culture when it comes to work/life balance. Australian cities regularly appear on lists of great places to live and work because of this culture.
There is a strong value placed on time with friends and family. While careers are still important, they aren’t held in as high regard as you’d see in the United States.
Health and fitness are also seen as part of life as opposed to something that some people do.
4. Solid Economy
Australia is renowned for its strong and stable economy. The Australian dollar is a solid and safe currency.
Australia ranks high in terms of minimum wage, offering more than the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada.
This means that whether you’re looking into property rentals or to buy a house, as long as you have a job you have a good chance of being able to afford it.
5. Endless Things to Do In Australia
Living in Australia is an experience like no other. Such a vast country offers a huge amount of things to do and places to see. Here are some of the best places in Australia that you’ll want to see:
- Sydney Opera House
- Sydney Harbor Bridge
- Great Barrier Reef
- Uluru (Ayers Rock)
- Bondi Beach
This is barely scratching the surface of what you can get up to in Australia.
Can You See Yourself Making a Move to Australia?
With all it has to offer, a move to Australia is something to seriously consider if you’re looking for a big change.
If you want to move far away but don’t want to have to overcome language or cultural barriers, the Land Down Under is a fantastic option for you.
