Definitely, Australia is rated extremely high in the list for standards of living. Few countries rate higher..Also compared to other first world countries has a very healthy environment, although this has diminished in Sydney and Melbourne...

And ofcourse,Well paid jobs. Jobs are one of the hihgest earnings in the world, people are generally paid very evenly, high paid jobs are usually related to the mining sector. Compared to the US, management are paid lower salaries and a focus on worker satisfaction has been prominent in Aussie history. Australian employers often make little distinction between foreigners and locals in employment except on the issue of stability.!

Good Question.

The immigration process can be daunting and we have only just lodged our EOI today after really thinking about things since the summer. But parts of the process really make you question yourself and 'do I really want to do this...?' if after all of this the answer is yes, then you're on the right road I think. So for us, it came down to a few things: we both currently work upwards of 10-12 hour days on often 4-5 days a week. The weather is predominantly wet and cold and we like being outdoors. Then you have the attitude of people recently - society is changing and not all in a good way.

Australia appeals because the weather is warmer, albeit not as many hours of daylight. The culture and way of life is relatively laid back. We're both planning to work and work hard for the next 20 years.... so we have lots to offer. But also we want to make it worthwhile for us too. Here it seems like a hamster wheel most days. The Aus economy is doing better - & here, whilst we're both in a higher tax bracket, it would be nice to see that tax being spent wisely... and finally, the beaches, the wide open spaces, the politer people and societal values. I'm sure Oz has it's down sides... but we've had 42 years of the UK downsides so far and enough is enough now
