Life in Australia is sunny and relaxed for the most part, and Adelaide is no different; beautiful beaches and attractive architecture abound. As the commercial center and capital of South Australia, and with an urban area housing over 1.5 million residents, Adelaide is a fast-growing and vibrant city. Despite the bustle, its relatively small size for a major city gives it a laid back, smaller town feel while retaining its status as a center for big business and industry. Adelaide is also extremely affordable, compared to its three biggest companion state capitals in Australia, making it an attractive destination for international expats. Although wages are lower in general than some other cities, there are many key sectors, for which the Australian government is always looking for expats to fill vacant positions that operate in or around Adelaide. The local mining industry is also seeing heavy investment, so economic opportunities are definitely available for expats with the right skills.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Shanghai or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Moving to any foreign country can be a challenging experience and the sometimes extreme heat in Australia, among other culture shocks, can leave even the happiest of expats feeling homesick on occasion. For these times, InterNations is always available — with a few simple clicks, you can be browsing InterNations Adelaide's list of official events and activities or chat with like-minded expats on one of our many forums.
