Find Out More about Brisbane and What It Offers for Expats
Australia is well known for its almost permanent sunshine and laid-back lifestyle, and Brisbane is no exception. With a vibrant nightlife, year-round al fresco dining, riverside beaches (yes, really!) and the vacation hotspots of the Gold Coast only an hour's drive away, expat life here can be a fulfilling experience. But it's not all play; Brisbane is a thriving economic hub and one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia, with over two million residents. Work here for expats is mainly in managerial positions with business, or as a skilled worker, since Australia has a labor shortage in certain fields. Expats most probably will only be allowed resident status if they have employment waiting for them, which can prove difficult — but InterNations can often help out on this front, so check the Brisbane Community for more information or to ask questions!
Connect with Other Expats in Brisbane with InterNations
As a country with an enviable work/life balance (by many other countries' standards), expats in Australia might find themselves with a lot of free time. The Aussie way of life might seem pretty similar to Western Europe or America, but it can be different in subtle ways that can often catch unwary expats out if they aren't prepared before their move. There might not officially be a language barrier, for example, but many expats might find Aussie colloquialisms and slang hard to understand at first. Luckily, with InterNations you can meet, converse, and relax with like-minded expats in Brisbane. Also on offer are a wide range of social events and interest-based groups including coffee evenings, beach fun days, outdoor exploring groups, and business networking events.
