10 Reasons Why…

If you are wondering about why you should move to Australia to live, work or invest, here are 10 reasons:

Reason 1

According to the United Nations, Australia is the one of the best countries in the world to live, due to its excellent quality of life index.

The UN establishes a qualification, also known as the Human Development Index, based on an annual survey of social progress and economic indexes of the 190 countries.

Australia is on top because it has great access to education, high life expectation, safety and socio-economic well-being.

Reason 2

Australia is also one of the happiest countries in the world.

The well-recognized journal “The Wall Street Journal” gave this title to Australia after analyzing eleven welfare variables used by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that created the Better Life Index.

Australia has high values in all variables assigned by the index: employment, income, housing, community, education, work-personal balance, environment, citizen participation, health, life satisfaction and safety.

Reason 3

It is well-known that Australia has an active and solid economy that has been strengthened over the last decades. International commerce is orientated to the fabrication of high-value products and services.

Its strong real estate market is a magnet for foreign investors for years. It has a skilled workforce, the socio-political backing of democratic institutions, social harmony and outstanding outdoor lifestyle that is an example throughout the world.

Reason 4

The visa approval process of the qualified migration prospect is considered fast, compared to other countries.

For the practice of several occupations in Australia, a professional validation prior to the granting of the visa is required, which facilitates the insertion of professionals in the local labor market.

Reason 5

The Australian educational level is recognized worldwide for its excellent quality.

This gives credit to the high proportion of foreigners who make up the student population of Australian universities, who represent more than 10% of the total number of students enrolled in these institutions.

It has many world-renowned universities and business schools.

Reason 6

Since its founding, Australia has been a nation of immigrants and has become a tolerant and multicultural society, with an rejection of racial discrimination.

Reason 7

Australia is considered one of the safest countries on the planet. It has low levels of crime and efficient police forces. In general, Australian citizens feel proud of the peaceful society in which they live.

Reason 8

The Australian climate is one of the best in world, if not THE best, some will say. It varies according to the different regions. While the North is tropical, the South has seasons. Winters are mild compared to North America and Europe. Snow is regular in winter in the Snowy Mountains region.

Where in the world can you go snowboarding today and to the beach tomorrow? Only in Australia!

Reason 9

Australia has one of the lowest population density levels per square kilometer in the world. For this reason, there is a need to populate the country to ensure the subsistence of the economic system and social security.

Reason 10

The Australian lifestyle favors the enjoyment of free time with family, friends, sports and contact with nature.

Work is a fundamental value of society but must be accompanied by the necessary time for rest and recreational activities.

Enjoy your boat, bike, jet ski, kite-surf on daily basis!

What if we told you that there are 10 reasons not to move to Australia?

According to OECD, Australia is one of the best countries on the planet to live in. However, Australia is NOT for everyone. Below we have compiled a list of most common reasons to think twice before relocating Down Under.


If you are an introvert who hates talking to other people and avoids human contact at all costs, stay away from the Aussies.

They are not only annoyingly friendly, chatty and helpful, they also remember your name (yes, the post office lady and the butcher!).

To make matters worse, they joke and laugh a lot.


If you prefer low temperatures, snow, rain, fog, wind and blizzards, Australia is definitely not for you!

Australian North Sunshine coast is getting around 300 days of sunshine, NSW and Sydney around 250 days and the South with Melbourne still around 200 sunny days!

The average temperature in Australia in winter is 15ºC.

You don’t like snow? Well you get some for your ski and snowboard fix in the Snowy Mountains with a bunch of overexcited kids who have never seen the fluffy thing before.


One of the top reasons not to move to Australia are the beaches. If you hate golden sand, blue waters, the sound of splashing waves and an opportunity to catch some amazing fish, this country is not for you.

Australia has 10,685 beaches, some of them rated as top-beaches in the World!

And then there are all these annoying people on the beach – snorkeling, splashing in the waves, relaxing, reading books, walking their dogs. The list goes on…


If you like eating unripe fruit that has travelled from another country after being heavily sprayed with pesticides and chemicals, you will be disappointed with Australian produce.

You will no doubt feel overwhelmed by a wide selection of colorful, ripe and juicy fruit grown locally by Aussie farmers.

You will quickly get sick of having “smashed avo” (avocado in Australian English) on ciabatta followed by an Aussie favorite – a flat white (coffee).

Cultural diversity

Another reason not to emigrate to Australia is cultural diversity.

If you are not a fan of people from various cultural backgrounds living peacefully in one country, we have got bad news for you!

Australia is the most ethnically diverse country in the World with 30% of Australians born overseas and 49% having at least one parent born overseas.

Strong economy

If you prefer living and working in a poor country with a low minimum wage (or lack of it), high unemployment and low living standards, forget Australia.

The national minimum wage is currently AUD $20.33 per hour (2021), unemployment is low and according OECD Australia ranks at the top in income and wealth, environmental quality, health status, housing, jobs and earnings, education and skills, subjective well-being, and social connections.

Laid-back lifestyle, attitude and language

If you like the pressure of deadlines, wearing a suit and a tie every day and the way they speak English on BBC, you might re-consider moving Down Under.

For Australians everyone is a ‘mate’, wearing ‘thongs’ and ‘singlets’ is the norm and all problems are met with ‘no worries.’ Even meeting royalty doesn’t stress Aussies too much.

In fact, in 1970s an Australian cricketer Dennis Lillee greeted Queen Elizabeth with a ‘G’day, how ya goin’?’. This should sum it up for you.


If you are not an outdoorsy person, you might want to choose another country as your next destination. Australians love camping!

They invest heavily in camping equipment, 4WDs, camper vans and fishing gear.

Camping is in their blood: they will use every opportunity to pack up and escape for a weekend into the bush or to a nice beach.


If you are not the sporty type and you prefer reading books or going to the cinema, you might feel a bit out of place in the land of Oz.

Australia is a nation of various sports! Soccer, tennis, rugby, hockey, list goes on..

Many weekends revolve around playing or watching a game of footy, always accompanied with loud cheers and beer.

With great weather and so much space, it’s no wonder Australians engage in sport so much.


The last, and maybe most important reason not to relocate to Australia, is safety.

If you like a bit of an adrenaline rush due to being in dangerous surroundings, you might find Australia disappointing.

The country is ranked 10th out of 162 on the safest and most dangerous countries ranking. Crimes rates and terrorism risk are low.

Although there is no shortage of dangerous animals (spiders, snakes, jellyfish, crocodiles, sharks), recent data shows that the most dangerous animal in Australia is…a horse.
