Living in Australia

Ah go on, give it a share! Go on.. go on.. go on.

If you’re looking for a change of scenery, Australia is a great place to consider. It has its unique charm that makes it one of the best places in the world to visit and/or live in. Here are some of the best things about living in the Land Down Under.

Great weather

Sick and tired of the cold and the snow? If you are, then pack your bags and head to Australia. Great weather is, no doubt, one of the best things about this country. There are no harsh snow storms and it’s like summer all year-round.

Interesting birds and wildlife

Australia has some of the most diverse and interesting flora and fauna in the world. If you love plants and animals, you’ll definitely have a blast during your stay.

Great outdoors and natural sceneries

Oz is a paradise for people who love the great outdoors. From its stunning beaches to its well-preserved national parks, there are definitely a lot of things you can do and enjoy in this country. You can go camping, go surfing all year-round, go bushwalking, and try any outdoor activity you haven’t tried before.

Good schools

Australia has a sound education system that can help develop and nurture your kids’ thirst for knowledge. It also has some of the best colleges and universities in the world.

Safe and politically stable

Political instability is definitely not a problem in Oz. Sure, politicians may fight and bicker and crimes may occur from time to time, but Australia is generally a safe and politically stable country.

Friendly, funny people

The Aussies are amongst the friendliest in the world. Many of them are fun to be with and you’ll definitely have one heck of a time once you become friends with them.

While there are great things about this country, Australia is far from perfect. Just like any country, there are disadvantages to living in Oz.

Skin cancer rates

Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world so don’t forget to lather up on sunscreen before going out.

Dangerous wildlife

While Oz has some of the most interesting animals in the planet, it also has some of the deadliest. The country is home to a number of poisonous snakes and spiders.

Droughts, water shortages, and bushfires

Because it can get very hot in Australia, especially during summer, the country is prone to droughts, water shortages, and bushfires.

Complicated tax system

Business owners need to get a good accountant and/or tax software to efficiently manage their taxes.

Ah go on, give it a share! Go on.. go on.. go on.
