Immigrating to Aus from SA

We are in the final phase of getting our PR visa. I am 42 with an MBA with international retail experience in SA, The UK and the Netherlands. Can anyone comment on job prospects (pref. Sydney or Brisbane)? This is my first time on this site.

Sydney is far larger than Brisbane and has more of the international city flare about it by a long shot.
It is also the most cluttered and expensive city in Australia to live, and Brisbane or the Gold Coast to the south having a much better lifestyle, the Gold Coast also being a magnet for domestic and international tourism and many large shopping complexes there.

Hi Spooneckmate, I spent 4 days in Sydney at a conference, what a wonderful city to visit..... and a great place to leave!!! very expensive, on the go 24/7 and much to fast for this old dear... but a stunning stunning city. Did not have the pleasure of getting to Brisbane but many of my clients have settled there and love it. It can get very very hot though. I am sure you will come to the right decision though. Regards Mary

Not quite right about the heat Mary and actually Sydney and even Melbourne get far hotter temperatures, up around 45C + last year with the tragic bushfires we had.
Brisbane on the other hand may approach 40C occasionally too but usually quite a bit lower and generally a couple of degrees or more less than Sydney, the difference being the humidity that is higher as you go further north and Brisbane further inland from the coast gets less relief from the humidity.
Sydney also gets quite muggy and the CBD with the buildings mass of concrete generates its own micro climate for maxi mugginess.

The Gold Coast, right on the coast is said to have about Australia's best climate, though arguably a bit north of Brisbane can be even better.
Generally max. of low thirties summer weather and mild winters, where you can live without need for heating or air-conditioning.

I do however agree on your Sydney sentiments of a spectacular city to visit for as long as the money holds out, but then I do travel on the cheap!
