The weather and the language are two aspects that appeal to many people.

I came on holiday in 1984 and 1985, then migrated in 1986.
Spain looked good too, but the language was a barrier...

My fiancee is coming because I am here

Honestly, what's not to like? 15th Largest Economy in the world. Smallest but most interesting continent with a population of 24 million people. Beautiful scenery all over the landscape. Prospectively good for hardworking and skilled migrants...i could go on and on. AUSTRALIAAAAAA!!1

There are actually many reasons for some people to not like Australia.
Parts can be too hot.
The right work can be hard to find.
It can be very different to what people are used to, some good, some bad.
In some respects it is the least interesting continent.

Its all a balance really. And really depends on what country one is coming from.

I have always been fascinated by the Australian way of living ever since I first visited this beautiful country way back in the 1990's when I was sailing on board merchant ships.

The casual attitude towards life, the mateship, the respect for hard work and love for the underdog is something I relate to.

Besides, the weather and the numerous options for outdoor activities and adventure was a big draw for me.

I must say that in the two years I have been here I am convinced that Australia has offered me so much more than I had aspired for. Sure, the going has been tough. I am still looking for a permanent job, I am still living in a rental but besides all of that, the journey has been very rewarding and I am confident of achieving all my dreams in this great country.

The main reason which impacts me to Australia is that my wife and me is eager to change the trace of current lift route which is fairly steady and boring.

I've heard that Geelong reach to 50 degrees of celcius time to time. Is that true? Or maybe my friend just exaggerated it.

Australia's record maximum is 50.7 degrees reached at Oodnadatta Airport on January 2, 1960

Australian Record Weather Won't Break 50 Degrees: Bureau | smh.com.au

Geelong isnt that hot.
The hottest month has an average daily maximum of 24.9 (C)

Everywhere gets the odd heatwave. Even cool Britain has reached 37.4C....

That was very informative, thank you for your effort! To be honest I'm glad that that isn't true.
