Hi! I am planning to move to Darwin to study or to do my trainee research visa. What are the chances of getting PR in Northern Territory.

Thanks for your help everyone! I am really having hard time choosing the right state for me.

Irrespective of which state you choose, PR is done through the Federal Govt Department of Immigration, not the State Govts.

We are planning to move to Australia. I need some advice on same.
I was considering Adelaide or Brisbane, I heard it is cheaper than Sydney.
Can anybody share few things about these two cities like a standard of living, public transport, childcare, housing etc?
