    DescriptionMigration to Australia is not always straightforward, nor is it the right choice for everyone. This book is designed to assist people in making an informed decision ahead of taking the huge step to relocate. It will equip readers with enough information to prepare them for the day-to-day realities of living and working in Australia, as this often turns out to be very different from what was expected. Part One is a general overview to Living in Australia and details the complex visa process, finance, healthcare, lifestyle, property and education. It also contains up to date information on the current economic situation, which industries are on the rise and decline, how to go about your job search from the UK and Australia, where to look for work and how to increase your opportunities and secure the correct visa. Part Two examines Australia's main cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Tasmania) and provides comprehensive information about what to expect from each in terms of lifestyle, employment opportunities, recreation, residential options and information on education and childcare for those with families. Written from personal experience, this book seeks to reduce some of the stress involved in making the momentous decision to live / work in Australia and offers valuable advice and tips on how to save time and money.
