‘Quality of life’ is a term loosely thrown around when we discuss living in Australia. With great healthcare, more job opportunities, and a relaxed, slower pace, it’s a no-brainer thousands of people immigrate to Australia each year, to get a piece of the ‘no worries’ lifestyle.

If you’re thinking of taking the plunge and relocating to the Land Down Under, you’ll need to decide where you’ll want to live. New Zealand Movers will discuss the top 5 cities to move to in Australia, and what makes them so great, so you can pick a city that’s right for you.


Sydney, one of the most exciting, cosmopolitan cities of the world! Perfect for professionals and also families who crave a bustling city but are after an active lifestyle. Sydney offers fantastic weather all year round, pristine beaches and a great education system. If you’re a parent and looking for public or private schooling for your children, there is plenty to choose from. From prestigious schools like Sydney Grammar to fantastic public schools like North Sydney Girls High School, you’re never short of excellent academic institutions.


Melbourne is the second most populous city after Sydney. With a booming job market, Melbourne is particularly great for industries such as tech, science and engineering, making it a desirable spot to settle down. Melbourne’s known for its arts, culture, food and coffee. Melburnians are sports-mad with their city being the home of the MCG and Australian Open.


Perth is one of the world’s most isolated cities, but don’t let that put you off. Settling in Perth is like being on holidays permanently, and it’s a great place to raise a family, with a laid-back lifestyle, super friendly people and a lower cost of living. Not to mention, Perth has some of the best beaches in the world – take a look at Scarborough Beach online!


Hobart is as pretty as a post card. With the freshest produce, loads of natural beauty and even a bustling art scene, Hobart really does have something for everyone. Even though Hobart is a little detached from the rest of Australia (literally) it’s still a quick plane ride to Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, so you’ve got a great base to explore surrounding gems. People in the industries of tourism, education and arts will quickly find work in Hobart.


This vibrant city has been voted one the world’s most liveable cities and it’s easy to see why. With a big emphasis on arts, food and the home of the country’s best wine, it’s easy to see why Adelaide is Australia’s best-kept secret. Not only is this quaint city cultured, but it’s generally much more affordable than many other Australian cities.

While each Australian city is unique and offer different selling points, there really is a city for every lifestyle. Australia is a multicultural country making it a perfect place for expats to relocate.
