Living In The Land of Koalas

Down Under has a collection of wonderful animals, with some of them being rather frightening. However, people are moving to Australia not only to take in the wildlife, but the country also a good reputation for being welcoming to migrants. As well as having a strong economy, and a modern lifestyle with a very good standard of living.

Australia’s Secret Sauce

  • There is free medical care for public hospitals as well as lower costs for prescription medicines due to the Medicare system.
  • The Australian education system provides free or, at least, subsidized primary, secondary, and tertiary education. Plus, the country has a good reputation when it comes to education.
  • Coffee shops everywhere that grind up fresh beans, there is a huge coffee culture in Australia. Why not check out Dukes Coffee Roasters or 303 By the Sea or the other 10 000. 
  • And, we cannot mention the weather with its hot sun across a desert landscape. However, if you are in the mood for snow then head to The Australian Alps which gets more snow than the Swiss one.

  • Check out the natural wonders of the Outback such as the Uluru, which is Australia's iconic red-rock monolith or take a trip to the Kakadu National Park to view the Aboriginal rock paintings as well as the billabong oxbow lakes.
  • Take a relaxing walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach, and check out the beautiful beaches of Tamarama, Bronte, and Clovelly, as well as several amazing cliff tops along the way.
