So... you want to work in Australia

Sun, sea, sand and super salaries abound in 'the land down under'. From some of the world's greatest highways such as the Great Ocean Road, to some of the most famous diving destinations like the Great Barrier Reef, it's easy to see why so many people love to travel to Australia on holiday.

But how about something a little more permanent? Australia boasts great weather, countryside and culture, and its two most populous centres, Melbourne and Sydney, continuously feature on the list of the world's most livable cities; Melbourne has topped the list 5 years in a row!

Livability, healthcare, education and quality of life are consistently high and employment prospects are no exception. Australia has the highest minimum wage in the world and an unemployment rate the envy of many nations around the globe; it is a land of opportunity with fantastic prospects for anyone willing to make the journey.

Australia is a very popular destination for people seeking an extended holiday or a better way of life for themselves and their families and has a long history of welcoming people from overseas. In fact, almost one in four Australians were born outside of the country. This diversity has contributed to the cultural wealth of this great island nation.
