Melbourne is the ‘cultural capital’ of Australia, a UNESCO city of literature and centre of the Australia arts. Not only that, but moving to Melbourne also means enjoying over 2,360 hours of sunshine a year and summer temperatures in the 30s. A hard task, but someone has to do it!
Australia has more UK expats than any other nationality and many of these expats find their way to Sydney to work, raise children and retire. Sydney is a dynamic and world-class city, it is surrounded by stunning natural beauty and boasts a high standard of living. With plenty of work opportunities, a diverse array of neighbourhoods to choose from, and loads of activities available, life in Sydney is anything but dull.
Let us confirm what you probably already suspected: Sydney is the most expensive place to live in Australia. This iconic city has it all: sun-drenched beaches, salubrious neighbourhoods, spectacular natural harbour, fine restaurants and first-class shopping. But it comes at a price. The average house price in the capital of New South Wales currently stands at just over $1,000,000 (£495,800). Melbourne – the world’s most liveable city – trails closely behind.
When you’re heading to Australia, paying for a local to show you the best sites and organise your move can be cheaper than you think. Here’s our brief guide to finding a good relocation service to Australia.
