Why did you choose Australia?

There are many different reason why expats have moved to, and are looking to move to, Australia. It would be interesting to see the range of different reasons?

Was it financial, health related, a fresh start, a new relationship, etc?

Australia is best in terms of locations and healthy living. Nice people and good job options too

No offense to Australia but it wasn't really a choice in my opinion, if you know what I'm saying! I fell in love with a man that happened to be a born and raised Australian, with very proud Australian parents, and I was like... hey, that's where Outback Jack was shot, right?

Not meant to sound disrespectful. Australia is a beautiful country and Australians are very lucky people. Your land, culture and the standard of living are all amazing and you should be very proud. But before I met my man I honestly had no idea about Australia. I was always a big traveler inside Europe and fascinated by the US, maybe someday I'd see Asia, but Australia? Was never on the list. Simply because it was so far and all I knew was that there was kangaroos, Kylie Monigue and a whole bunch of scary spiders and snakes. Figured I'd be busy enough with two or three continents this lifetime, I wasn't really pushing to also hit Australia.

But things change and you meet someone and get introduced to a beautiful country. I don't think I would have permanently left my homecountry for any country, even paradise, because the people I had around me at home are some very special people that stuck with me throughout my life and I would have never parted with them for anything less than the love of my life. I miss them and their presence in my life still but I have to say I am falling in love with Australia.

I never met Australian people so dnt how they are.. It's a rich country and from country like Bangladesh people always dream to migrate in Australia specially for financially solvency.Australia is also very beautiful country. i like the Australian cricket team but only thing i heard about Australia is that Bangladeshi people are deprived from proper job status. but dnt know whether it is right or not ..

I want a fresh start. I understand every place on earth has laws and such but if the American dream will never be then I might as well live happy on the beach where I might also be able to succeed. Here in the states it has become just a pipe dream for the average person. Go to college and they dont care if you have any jobs or not. They just send the bill. 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.

For me, its very simple.

Space, being outdoors and half decent weather. Having a two year old, I just want her to have some freedom and don't want to be stuck in the house for 6 months of the year.

Don't get me wrong, I know it's not utopia and there will be plenty of challenges, but overall, I know that Aus will provide us opportunities that we as a family simply don't have here in the UK.
