Childcare centres in Australia provide part-time or full-time care for children in specially-built facilities, and can be found across all areas of Australia. They often provide care from early morning hours until late in the evenings, and are run by private businesses, local councils or community centres, or not-for-profit groups. Some employers may also operate their own facilities for their staff’s children.

Australia is a country that takes bio-security and safety very seriously, meaning there are many restrictions as to products you can bring with you in Australia. When you arrive into Australia, you will be required to complete a customs card, called the Incoming Passenger Card, declaring the items that you will be bringing into the country. It is important to answer the questions honestly and accurately.

Relocating to Australia can be a complicated process, especially for large households, so it is important to select the best removal company for overseas shipping. This is an important step not to be taken lightly, as the cheapest quote may not be the best option for your needs. Set up an appointment with a relocation company for an in-house estimate, obtaining several quotes if needed.

If you are moving to Australia, please be aware of the requirements for immigrating with a pet. To move to Australia with your pet, you must comply with the import regulations set by the Department of Agriculture. You will have to complete many formalities before you leave, at least two months before your departure and procedures can be lengthy and expensive. 

Australia is an extremely large country, with points of interest very geographically distant from one another. However, most metropolitan and regional areas can be reached by public transportation. Airlines, trains, and bus networks serve the country well. Despite this, many people, especially those outside of larger cities, prefer the convenience of owning their own car over dependence on public transportation.
