The 'Lucky Country' for expats
The Great Barrier Reef isn't the only thing that's great for expats down under
The promise of an endless summer sees Australia perform consistently well as a top destination for expats who are drawn in by the warmer climate. As a result, an impressive majority feel physically healthier, upon moving there. New residents can expect a warm welcome to add to this already warm weather. The laid back, friendly Australian reputation is well earned as newcomers quickly settle in and make friends.
Expats in Australia enjoy considerably improved work life balance and have a seemingly endless list of magnificent places to visit in their free time. Although prices are relatively high in the cities, expats are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out, with Melbourne in particular, offering a taste of almost every world cuisine. The quality of food is reflective of the high quality of life down under, particularly for expats with children, who rate the country highly for education and children's development.
Although expats don't initially opt for the Australian life to help progress their careers, this is one of the reasons why they often end up staying long term. Expats are impressed with the salaries on offer in Australia which provide them with the means to fund their adventures across the vast country.
