    Without experience of having lived abroad, I thought it would be hard to get to know other expats. But not with InterNations.

Moving to Darwin

Because Darwin is so close to South East Asia, it is a fantastic location for those wishing to make regular trips overseas. Darwin has many large gardens and parks that are fantastic to explore during any time of year - the warm Australian climate makes Darwin an attractive place to move to. There are plenty of sporting and media opportunities in the nearby area, and a solid transport and health infrastructure. If you want to start moving to Darwin, but you need help with sorting out the correct paperwork, and finding storage for your old belongings, then the InterNations website can be a great help. Thousands of expatriates just like yourself, share their experiences in the online forums and discussion boards. Their experience can make your move to Darwin as easy as it can be.

Working in Darwin

The economy in Darwin is led by the tourism and mining industries, with plenty of jobs available in both sectors. More than $2.5 billion Australian dollars are made every year from the mining and energy industry, with off-shore oil and gas playing a major part in the industry. Another substantial source of employment is the military presence that is stationed in Darwin and the surrounding area - there are also many United Nations officers stationed in Darwin. Additionally, the port attracts a lot of business to Darwin, but its importance is still in development with additional growth expected in the coming years. If you want to start life as an expat working in Darwin, but you feel you need a push in the right direction, the InterNations’ own collection of articles, called the Expat Magazine, has crucial hints and tips to make expatriate life abroad easier.

    When I first attended the Sydney Bar night I was really nervous. But everyone welcomed me and I quickly felt as part of the community.
