Hi From Scotland

Hello from a long way away, in Scotland...

Basically here to get a better insight of what moving to Australia entails, and how some folk have found it. Hoping to move sooner rather than later, if the correct job appears!

Been hearing some great things about the Gold Coast, so that remains the dream!

Cheers,
Sandy

Hey Sandy.
Good luck! Gold Coast is stunning but it's very touristy. I, personally, prefer Sydney. Same fantastic beaches, cooler winters, 10 fold the jobs, much better nightlife and food.

Thanks a lot! Yeah, from what I've heard, it's like a 'working man's Ibiza'?

Ah right, well to be honest, Australia on the whole looks a great country. I may find a lot more job opportunities around Sydney, as opposed to other destinations to be fair. A cool winter would also do me the world of good as well, I'm a Scot.....so anything above 15 degree's is shorts weather here!

You say 10 fold the jobs? What do you mean? Sorry, not up to scratch on the lingo...

Haha that's alright. I do get tired of the heat myself so Sydney winter (around 10 degrees at night) is beautiful. Summers are as hot in Syd as they are in GC.
Sydney generates around the quarter of all Australian Job Vacancies. So basically there are always jobs advertised and employers looking for employees. Obviously this depends on what is your professional field, if you work in hospitality GC might be a bit better. Otherwise I would say Sydney. The downside Sydney is more expensive.

I wouldn't say GC is working mans Ibiza. While nightlife of Ibiza might be better, GC has much better beaches, rain forests , beautiful treks and astonishing bush.

Ah that sounds perfect to me! I would expect so with Summers, suppose that'd mean I'd save money on holiday's abroad! Minus the trips back to Scotland of course...

Wow, that's a lot. Yeah, well I'd be looking for a job in the architectural field, so Sydney would be my best bet you'd say? I understand Sydney would be more expensive, but I suppose the salary would go up as a result? or I'd hope it would?

Ah, well GC sounds a much more aesthetically pleasing place in that case! Would love to at least pay a visit there some day! Sounds perfect.
