The world is not as it used to be. Where once, most of us would have lived our entire lives in the same place, growing up and growing old alongside our relatives, the accessibility of international flights and the connectivity of mobile devices has made it much easier to relocate your life to a new town, state, or even country! Many people, young and old, are taking this new opportunity to build their lives in a foreign country.
So, which country to choose? The world is full of incredible places and picking just one can be a challenge. If you’re looking for a change but aren’t sure where to find it, Australia might just be the place you never knew you wanted to move to.
Very few places boast the beauty—or diversity!—of Australia’s landscapes. While it is widely known for having some of the best beaches in the world, it also has an incredibly vast and fascinating desert at its center. What’s more, many of the most iconic landscapes can be found across the tremendous terrain that is Australia: from desert mountain ranges to jungle waterfalls to jagged rocky islands, you’ll never be bored looking out your car window on a road trip.
High Quality of Living
Australia’s quality of life has been ranked one of the highest in the world consistently over the course of the past decade. It was second only to Norway in the Human Development Report conducted by the UN in 2014, which measured things like life expectancy, mean years of schooling, and gross national income per capita.
This isn’t surprising when you consider that Australia has a strong economy, plenty of sunshine and warm weather and that its population has historically taken a relaxed attitude towards life. Bring on the BBQs!
Because Australia is a relatively new country (at least in terms of its recognition by the Commonwealth), many of its cities boast impressive modern architecture and high-spec houses. In fact, property across the nation reflects this modern attention to comforts: Broadhurst Property in Kyneton, for example, showcases some of the stunning examples of the places you could live if you chose to relocate to Australia.
The architecture isn’t limited to the modern, however! There are plenty of stunning older houses with just as much character as any colonial home elsewhere: what’s brilliant about the real estate in Australia is that there is plenty to choose from.
The final, most important reason you should relocate to Australia? Wine! Australia is one of the top wine producers in the world, with seasons that lend themselves to beautiful Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, types of muscle pain and Merlot wines. If white wine is more your thing, Australia is renowned for producing unparalleled Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. There are also plenty of beautiful wineries dotted around the landscapes to visit.
As we already mentioned, the scenery is beautiful in Australia, and the only thing that could make such gorgeous landscapes better is the addition of some gorgeous wines!
