The 'dangerous' animals always seem to be one of the main concerns for most. However, I do not believe there is in fact a great risk. Especially not in the major cities. On top of that, there is a lot of over exagerration on how poisonous some animals are.

For me, the main reason to come to Australia would be the lifestyle (outdoor living) and the weather (West-Coast, Perth Area).

I sponsored my Australian husband to Canada first and he just couldn't get used to the fast pace, the traffic and the food. I am ready for the change and a quiet retirment. I have been to Australia a couple of times and I look forward to living there. I love the wildlife and scenery and the smell of fresh air. My husband is different in a positive way when he is home and I look forward to the move. To be honest I would move wherever he would want to as long as it made hime happy because that would make me happy also.

Was it financial, health related, a fresh start, a new relationship, etc?
I think Australia has a great facilities for foreign students as well as workers

If you have no work then they expect you to find the money in a tree, or in some instances they threaten you with incarceration. Like my SN, I am FEDUP.

The fact that so many Aussies are worry free, makes me want to sign up. That says a lot to me, but I have just started the learning process as of yesterday. I have a lot to learn.
curious to know 3 months later what you have decided to do. I am fed up with US as well. Always struggling for the American dream but never quite reaching it

In my case, I would say that "Australia picked me". I never planned to move to Australia. But the opportunity popped up, and I gave it a go. I read a bit about the country. And I knew that there is a beautiful rich wildlife, clean air, possibilities to succeed, the country is stable politically, the currency is strong, nice people, nice landscapes, great weather etc... I thought there was no way I wouldn't enjoy myself there. That convinced me to take a chance and move to Australia .

Both are great countries but you may enjoy the multicultural elements of Australia more and the laid back culture.

Neither did I pick Australia, nor did Australia pick me. It was someone else's decision and I'm grateful for it.

My parents passed away when I was a teen and my mother's last instruction was to ask my uncle if he'd take me to live with his family in Australia as they were really close when they were growing up. They brought me here as a student, there were no facilities for them to adopt me so I came as a student. The intention was for me to finish off my education first and then probably to go back since it'd be hard to stay here permanently. Now I've got a chance to stay here and I'm grabbing it with both hands.

paradise lost

people choose Australia because it is the paradise lost for everybody who does feel humiliation of human dignity in his own country.
