The Australia guide

Latest articles

Perth is the capital of Western Australia, and is the largest city on Australia’s west coast. It has grown rapidly in recent years, thanks in part to the mining boom in Australia. The major industries in Perth include hospitality, healthcare, professional services, mining, construction, and education. The Perth job-market offers numerous employment opportunities in a beautiful and warm coastal city to expats hoping to find a job there.

The city of Brisbane, located in the north-eastern state of Queensland, is a thriving city of approximately 2.28 million people, with a robust local economy. It is also the largest city in Queensland. Brisbane enjoys a warm climate all year round, and great natural beauty in its surrounding countryside. It is large enough to offer many career opportunities but is also small enough to make new arrivals feel welcome.

Australia is a fantastic place to visit for a short term stay. If you are considering spending some time in Australia, but not making a permanent move, then please be aware of the following types of visas. These are the options for shorter term stays in Australia, for various visitation or tourism purposes.

When travelling to Australia, it is necessary to get a visa from the Department of Immigration before confirming your overseas travel. Types of visas vary according to the length of stay in Australia, how long you intend to stay, and the home country of the applicant, so it is best to consult with the Department of Immigration if you are unsure as to what visa is applicable to you.

The Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is designed for younger people to travel to Australia who want an extended holiday and to work here to fund it. Visa holders can work for a business or organisation for up to six months per employer, as the work component is designed to supplement the costs of travel, not as the main purpose of the visit.

I am Italian, married to an Aussie, living in Melbourne. I write about my life on the other side of the world. Cultural differences, nostalgic thoughts and, sometimes, I just write about the weather!
