Australia the Best Place to live

Best Place / September 22, 2020

Moving to Australia means running towards opportunities: Australia is a new country where the population, the economy and the opportunities are growing quickly. Many say that Australia today is like the USA 50 years ago…just full of enthusiasm and opportunity.

Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and other Australian cities have a European / North America way of life, offering every kind of service, work, and fun. The quality of life is even better thanks to a lower population density than most cities, low pollution levels and a modern and efficient infrastructure.

Australian society is very multicultural, young and open-minded. The average age is 37. It’s a place where people from all over the world come to share and contribute to a modern nation living experience: Australia may not have the history of some countries, but surely has a bright future ahead.

Economy and Job Market

Australia’s economy has been the success story of the last few decades: it’s grown and grown. The majority of people could be described as middle class. Job opportunities are available to everyone; Australia is a more meritocratic country than just about anywhere else. Unemployment rates are very low, and in most cities, there is plenty of casual work available, especially for young Australians and international students. And with the highest minimum wages in the world, even those in casual jobs are paid much more than in Europe.

Multicultural society

Australia has an extremely multicultural population. Australia’s recent history is a history of mass immigration, from all parts of the world. Today 1 out of 4 Australians was born overseas and that ratio is increasing.

This means that in Australia you’ll never stand out as a foreigner. If you’re smart, positive, have a good English level and the right attitude, you’ll fin a lot of work opportunities, probably more than in your own country. It’s no wonder Australia is often called “the lucky country”!

Australian English

The English spoken in Australia is different only in the accent and one or two expressions and words. After a few days the Australian accent will sound familiar, and you’ll be ready to live in any English speaking country.
