The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Australia

Are you an expat working and living in Australia? Or are you preparing to move soon to Canberra, Melbourne or any other of the Australian international hotspots?

Expat life in Australia has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like Queensland, learning how Australian people celebrate Australia Day, up to tasting Australia’s favorite dishes such as vegemite.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Australia. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Cyprus to living in Iceland.

Working and living in Australia – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Australia requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Australian expat life. Living abroad in Australia raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Australia?ʺ, ʺWill I need special dermatological care for the Australian climate?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Canberra should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Australian municipality in Sydney?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Australia is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Australia aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Australia. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from housing and household, to administration & finance or sports and leisure, up to local infrastructure. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat is the general Australian attitude towards non-Anglophone foreigners?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
