Could this be your New Year’s resolution for 2019?
In January 2006 my wife and I decided that we wanted to move to Australia, so that was our New Year’s resolution back then. By 14 November 2007 we had landed in Brisbane with our daughter, who was just three and a half years old at the time, on a one-way ticket.
We are now Australian citizens.
10 years ago to this very day I launched this website with a blog post called Our First Full Year Living In Australia. It contained a 3 1/2 minute video of the highlights from the previous full year, 2008.
Since then I have added over 1400 pages to this website, many of them on the Blog, about life in Australia. I’ve also uploaded a fresh new video showing the highlights of every full year we have lived here since. You can see all of these videos on my page Our First 10 Years Living in Australia: The Videos.
If you want to know what it’s like to live in Australia, you might want to check them out.
And if moving to Australia is your New Year’s resolution this year, I have plenty of other pages that can help you on your journey.
Firstly, my series How to Move to Australia will show you how the process worked for me and my family. My Australian Cities and Australian States pages will help you decide where you want to live. Be sure to check out the comments on these pages, they often contain some great information by locals about what some of these places are really like.
My pages about Visas will help you look into the possibility of you moving to and working in Australia and all of my Migration Advice pages will help you further look into all sorts of stuff related to moving to Australia.
These pages and their sub pages can also be accessed from the main navigation menu to this website.
Finally, three years ago I wrote a similar post to this one which also included a cheap home-made image like the one at the top of this page. I called that post Moving to Australia: A New Year’s Resolution and its worth a read as I try and answer three questions:
1) Is it achievable for you?
2) Will you get a job here in Australia?
3) Will you survive without your friends and family?
If moving to Australia is something you are keen to do, I hope you will find these pages helpful.
Maybe we will see you in Australia sometime soon.
Happy New Year to you.
