Moving to Sydney, Australia?
A fast-paced lifestyle, amazing weather all year round, highly-paid jobs and an excellent quality of life – these are just some of the factors that draw Kiwis to Australia’s biggest city of Sydney each year.
Sydney is a vibrant place, and it’s known as a city of the world. So, what are some of the top reasons to move to Sydney and start living your best Australian life?
Here, the experts at New Zealand Movers, who have moved thousands of Kiwis to the city of Sydney, outline 5 reasons to move across the Tasman and settle for Sydney.
1. Job opportunities
Sydney has a strong job market, known for its highly paid positions across a range of different industries. Unemployment is low in Sydney, with the rates around the 3.75% mark. Industries that are booming in Sydney range from IT and technology to construction and trades.
Sydney is known for its plethora of stunning beaches – and with hot summers, you can visit them almost every day during your Christmas holidays. Bondi Beach is of course one of the world’s most famous beaches, but Maroubra, Clovelly, Coogee, Manly and Tamarama are just a few of the other stunning beaches located right a short drive from Sydney’s centre.
Sydney boasts some of Australia’s finest schools, from kindergarten to university. In the private sector, Sydney Grammar School and The King’s School are rated as two of the best schools in the country, and there are plenty of great public schools too, like North Sydney Boys High School and Sydney Girls High School. Universities include the University of Sydney, one of the oldest in Australia, and University of New South Wales.
Weather is another huge drawcard for Kiwis looking to swap chilly winters for hot summers in Sydney. Winters in Sydney are very mild; the average winter temperature high in July (the coldest month) is a pleasant 17 degrees Celsius. Summers are hot, and spent at the beach, or visiting the beachside towns and villages which you’ll find throughout coastal NSW. The South Coast is a favourite holiday spot for Sydneysiders during the summer.
5. Great public transport
Public transport in Sydney is among the best-connected in the country. Commuting in Sydney, you have the option of trains, trams and buses – with a growing number of bike lanes opening up as well. In the warmer months, many Sydneysiders switch to electric scooters as a quick, fun and sustainable way of getting to work. Glide past the bumper-to-bumper traffic with a smile on your face!
