Top Places To Relocate in Australia

If you are moving to Australia, you have many choices of regions. Australia consists of two territories – The Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory.

There are also six states – Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania.  Australia offers mild winters, hot summers and plenty of coastland and is considered one of the top places to live in the world. So just where should you choose to live in Australia?


Canberra is the capital of Australia, despite many who think that it is Sydney. While it is typically not thought of as a city for Australian relocation, it does offer great perks. With a population of just over 350,000, it is among the least populated of all major cities, so if you want to relocate somewhere that is not overcrowded, this is a good choice. While the cost of living is a bit higher here than in other cities, wages are a bit higher as well. The average weekly wage is about £200 or so higher than other areas.


It seems that everyone wants to live in Sydney and why wouldn’t they? This lovely city is a hub for tourism and business and is world renowned for its beaches and opera house. Sydney offers a fair cost of living, falling well below that of Canberra and its weekly wages are about average with the rest of the country coming in at about £900 or more per week.


Melbourne has a rather high population but is the best choice for those who want to live surrounded by cafes, boutiques and the world of art. Many consider Melbourne to be the sports capital of Australia and it offers job growth and a booming economy.


Yamba is located in New South Wales and is a small town with much to offer. With more than 10 beautiful beaches, all of which remain un-crowded on any given day, this small town is considered one of the top choices for Australian relocation. The town offers much with regards to economy and employment and offers a small village atmosphere that many find appealing.


There are of course other cities in Australia and you may find one that is well off the beaten path that offers everything you want when relocating. Whether you are looking for a bit city filled with culture and diversity or you prefer a quaint village with just a handful of people, you are sure to find the perfect relocation destination in Australia.
