How is life in Australia?
There are so many opportunities to discover and explore in our country for those who not only want to drop in for a visit but at some point intend to live in Australia as well! Whether you have thoughts of becoming an Australian citizen long-term or a student wanting to study abroad, the many wonderful things about our country, such as the rich culture, friendly people, beautiful weather and more, will keep you from ever wanting to leave!
Our culture is extremely diverse with people coming from areas all over the world, of various religious faiths and traditions. We can say for sure, however, that everyone who settles in Australia has come for many of the same reasons, one of which is to enjoy the calm, outdoors, easy-going lifestyle that the Land Down Under is best known for. People living in Australia are extremely friendly and social, even going out of their way to greet and converse with strangers. They are also very upbeat and generally very happy.
For students, Australia boasts a number of prestigious universities, making it even easier to make new friends and be provided with opportunities to explore and take in the sights, wildlife, and local culture.
Australia’s cost of living is also much lower than those of other nations, especially including France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Petrol is cheap, shopping is fairly easy to manage, and, being the smallest continent with less area to cover when transporting goods, most produce is kept in the country. Farmers markets are abundant, providing some of the cheapest, freshest, and most diverse selection of produce and handmade products.
The weather here is magnificent year-round. Some areas farther north can get quite a bit of rain in some seasons, and the southern lands can get a bit chilly in the wintertime, but hardly enough to need more than a jacket. The sun is always shining in the Outback and our beaches are pristine! We Australians also have a deep love and connection to sports. If you’re a sports nut, you’ll be amazed at the sight of our outstanding stadiums, race tracks, and sports arenas. There is a very wide range of sports played up here down under, the most popular being rugby, football (soccer), cricket, netball (volleyball), basketball and many others. Most all sports are televised as well, but nothing truly beats a day in the sun cheering on your favorite rugby or cricket team!
No doubt, spending the rest of life in Australia is a dream for many people from all around the world. Not everybody may expect for a dream to become true, but usually it is a matter of willingness to make a first step becoming part of this wonderful nation.
No matter your reason for wanting to become an Australian citizen, whether to bask in the sun and lead a carefree suburban life, do away with the stresses of living within an unstable economy, start and raise a family in one of the highest-rated nations in the world, or just to get away from it all and start fresh, we Aussies are here and ready to welcome you to our fine nation, and to help you adapt to your new life with us as well. Make the choice for a better life! Come and enjoy Australia!
