Life in Aussie

Hi there,

Really I don't know where to begin. I'm hoping to work and live in Australia. I'm a qualified teacher from Ireland. I did my post grad in London UK. What are the prospects of securing work there? Is accomodation expensive and where are the hotspots in Australia? Ideally, I'd like to locate near a city but live near the sea. Hospitals and schools nearby are key to my happiness!!

To immigrate using teaching as your occupation, the first thing you'll need to do is have your qualifications assessed and then it is a case of registering for a particular state.
Have a look @ Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration for starters and A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information will have info relevant to what level of teaching you do.
As for locations, about 90% of Australians live alongthe eastcoast and so you've got quite a few regional size coastal cities from Cairns in the north of Queensland,
[ complete with the occasional cyclones to contend with ] all the way down to the south coast of NSW over a distance of about 3000 km. to choose from, Brisbane and Sydney being Capitals, a tropical clomate in the north and mild temperate in the south.

Then there's a fair bit of state forest country in SE heading into Victoria before getting to Lakes Entrance about 300 km. east of Melbourne and less coastal towns along a stormier and colder southern coast all the way across to Adelaide with Melbourne being the Vic. Capital.
You'll also find many regional cities/towns within about 200 km. of the coast frpm south Queensland through to Victoria.
But have a look at a map and google some place names, teachers usually more in demand the further inland you are prepared to go.

good luck kanga,

in addition to Wanderer's brief, there are lots of spots nearby the sea that you can choose.
sydney and melbourne are the crowded metropoles with plenty things to do and plenty headaches on the other hand. accomodation is very expensive there.
but it's better and affordable if you choose coastal cities. for more info on accomodation prices you can check
