The weather Nice, no tornadoes
Water safety You should learn to swim if you can't and swim between the flags at the beach
Electricity More power, it is 240 volts there
Trading hours and holidays Lots of holidays and plan your shopping
Crime Not too much in most places
Tipping Optional as minimum wages are higher but 10% is nice
and Emergency numbers 000 instead of 911

Cheers !
Really doesn't seem like too much to worry about unless you are considering the actual process of immigration!
