Living in Australia

The overwhelming majority of people living in Australia will tell you that they feel lucky. It's no wonder that Australia is sometimes called the "Lucky Country." Because Australia has the lowest population density, people who live here can fully enjoy their wide and spacious surroundings. As a matter of fact, Australia boasts a two people per square kilometer ratio, one of the lowest in the world, making living in Australia all the more attractive.
Living in Australia
With so many people choosing to live in Australia from all around the globe, new and future potential immigrants have an endless amount of questions about their acclimation and adjustment to day to day life in the Land Down Under. Below we answer some of most frequently asked questions and provide the ultimate guide to living in Australia.
1 - Living in Australia - What is the family life like?
2 - Living in Australia - Where is the best place to settle down?
3 - Living in Australia - What are the health care options?
4 - Living in Australia - What is public (and private) transportation like?
5 - Living in Australia - What is the job market like?
6 - Living in Australia - What are the options in regards to education?
7 - Living in Australia - What is there to do for fun?
1 - Living in Australia - What is the family life like?
Australians put a premium on family life and when living in Australia you will notice that many of the country's core beliefs and laws revolve around family values. This has been one of the most cited reasons immigrants give for being interested in moving to Australia.
There are countless family related resources that are publicly sponsored by the Australian government and other local organizations and children raised in Australia have historically chosen to live there as adults when compared to other countries around the world.
2 - Living in Australia - Where is the best place to settle down?
For the most part, the same factors that play into decisions on where to settle down and live in Australia are the same as when considering a place to live anywhere in the world.
All sizes of accommodations are available, from tiny one room apartments to large, luxurious and spacious houses.
Location variation is also at your disposal and will generally contain the same pros and cons as your country of origin. As many Australians prefer the more spacious option of large living quarters, they tend to move out to the suburbs of the more cosmopolitan cities. These areas, as is the case just about everywhere, tend to have homes with vast amounts of space and land available at a fraction of the price of when searching for something similar inside the city. Living down town and in the heart of one of these sections, on the other hand, will be dramatically more expensive for similar sized accommodations and, very often, the smaller apartments in these areas will be more expensive than the larger homes in the suburbs as well. This is the price people will pay to live "where the action is."
A common strategy for many people living in Australia is to rent a place to live in the city until getting more established and then buying something larger in a neighboring suburb as funds become more available.
3 - Living in Australia - What are the health care options?
Medical care for those living in Australia is subsidized by the government under the Medicare program, which works by reimbursing you after having paid the original fee to your doctor. Insurance can be purchased to cover anything not covered by Medicare and will often cover at least some of the cost even in certain cases which Medicare does apply. There are various other government aided medical subsidies available, but most are often a branch of Medicare.
Despite all the medical aid available, Australia's population is among the healthiest in the world with good living conditions and relatively little pollution. The technical expertise of doctors and hospitals in Australia is also recognized as some of the best in the world.
4 - Living in Australia - What is public (and private) transportation like?
The public transportation system for those living in Australia is among the most envied in the world and, with the great distances frequently associated with different points in the country, such a system is a necessity rather than a luxury.
There is a full schedule of metropolitan trains, metropolitan buses and regional trains running throughout the country at reasonable prices. They are all easy to find and easily accessible as well as some of the cleanest and most sanitary public transportation you will find.
Private transportation provides the usual traffic, extra pollution and higher cost you're probably already familiar with and, as such, environmentally friendly motor bikes, cycling and walking have grown much more popular as modes of transportation.
5 - Living in Australia - What is the job market like?
As mentioned in our immigration to Australia page, the country's unemployment is a miniscule under 7 percent and that is very appealing to potential immigrants thinking of living in Australia. However, much of ones success depends on how the immigration interviewing process goes, so extra care must be given during this phase.
There is no racial discrimination in Australia and immigrants overwhelmingly report back with positive feedback from potential employers. More important than your immigration status when finding work will be factors such as the economy, the location of Australia where you plan to work and the type of work you are looking for.
The Australian government sets the salaries and work condition laws and Australia's labor laws have historically treated the employee very well.
Please be advised: immigration approval does not guarantee a job.
6 - Living in Australia - What are the options in regards to education?
Schooling is available to everyone living in Australia without discrimination of age or ability. Children are required to be enrolled in school from the ages of five through fifteen and there are both public (free) and private (tuition based) schooling available.
Adults and those seeking higher learning will have to meet certain criteria to be eligible. Many of these spots are highly coveted and competition has increased as the population continues to grow.
Education is highly valued in Australia and there are many scholarships and work related educational subsidies available.
7 - Living in Australia - What is there to do for fun?
Once settled in and ready to enjoy living in Australia, the country provides a list of recreational activities that is second to none. The good climate, vast open spaces and beautiful beaches makes for a national obsession with outdoor sports and activities and is, due to its direct effect on good health, highly encouraged by both the medical and political world of Australia.
However, Australia's leisure activities and options are not limited just to the outdoors. The country boasts an enormous array of museums, galleries and other cultural centers and provides pubs, bars and a nightlife that brings in tourists from all over the world.
