June 28, 2019
Australia is one of the most multi-cultural, free and friendly countries in the world. So, if you have decided to move overseas to the land down under, you may be wondering where to live in Australia? Here at Crown Relocations, we know Australia well and are able to provide to you a list of the best suburbs in each state, so that you can make an informed decision before making your move.
New South Wales
As the most highly populated state in Australia, New South Wales has a variety of both busy and quiet areas to choose from. Parramatta is one of the most popular suburbs as it is located about 30 minutes from the main city of Sydney. Parramatta is a smaller, up-and-coming area with many restaurants and cafes. If you don’t mind living in an apartment block and love the hustle and bustle of a city, this may be the place for you. If you’re after more of a quiet serene location, the Blue Mountains is probably you’re scene. Located just over an hour from Sydney, the Blue Mountains has many small towns and beautiful views. Or, if you’re a fan of living on the coast, the Northern Beaches or Sutherland Shire to the north and south of the main city of Sydney is the perfect place to reside. Looking for more of a ‘every day is a holiday’ vibe? Then Coffs Harbour or Byron Bay are known for their relaxing, down-to-earth vibes. In fact, many people choose to holiday in these locations for this exact reason.
Brisbane is the main city of Queensland and is a quieter city than Sydney. It is lovely to walk around with museums, cafes and parks all around. However, the ‘sunshine state’ is most known for the Gold Coast, a holiday destination for many Australians. Cairns is also known as a holiday destination, mainly due to its warmer temperatures. So, if you’re a fan of the heat, this is the place for you.
Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia, but barely feels like a city at all. More of a big country town, this is the first choice for many families or retirees to live. Banksia is also a family-friendly suburb. Or, Glenelg is a popular choice among those residents who love the beach. Where to live in Australia is a question that comes up in particular with retirees who are coming from overseas - looking to relax.
Victoria is known for its shopping capital city, Melbourne. St Kilda is a suburb in the inner city of Melbourne, well known for its artsy nature. You’ll find a range of trendy café’s and shops, which will always leave you feeling vibrant and creative. If you’re an artist, writer or other creative profession, you should consider St Kilda for your new home. Alternatively, Richmond is a bustling retail centre full of heaps of shops, restaurants and cafes which will keep you and your family entertained all hours of the week. If you love going out with family and friends, this suburb may be the place for you. Popular also, Sandringham is a suburb still close to the city but also has a village vibe if this is what you are used to. Northern Territory Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory and is a holiday destination due to its warm weather. It gets very hot with temperatures soaring over 45 degrees during summer. Bayview and Fannie Bay are suburbs in Darwin that are popular to live but also quite expensive averaging around $1 million dollars to secure a property here.
As the biggest state of Australia, Western Australia has a wonderful climate and a relaxing lifestyle. As Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, it is definitely considered a popular place to live due to the exquisite beaches. Broome is known for its nature parks and is also a relaxing place to live. Or, if you’re looking for something different, Kalgoorlie is a mining town and provides a unique style of living.
Hobart is culturally rich and has plenty to offer sitting alongside rivers and the base of Mount Wellington. Sandy Bay is a suburb close to Hobart and is great if you love regular fishing and hiking. Launceston is Tasmania’s second major city and is great for families and working individuals alike.
