I'm here because I could do it.
I don't plan to live here for a long time though. I'm a bit of a nomad, and can't stay anywhere longer then 2-3 years without getting itchy feet.

Why not Canada, the U.S., or NZ, is the appeal of Australia primarily the climate, or because it is there???

Do you expect to markedly improve your living standards, or is it a life style change built around surf and beaches??
Correct me if l'm wrong, but is'nt OZ the most popular immigration destination for Brits, more chose OZ over North America and Europe. Probably because OZ has a booming economy, English speaking, similar system of government and culture, drive on left hand side of road, much less crime then USA, much better climate then Canada, Huge country, small population means plenty of space, outdoor activies in nice climate, beaches, swimming, fishing, bush walks, camping etc.

I would live in Canada too, I love British Columbia, but I do prefer the warmth to the cold and it was Australia who offered us visas on a plate so here we are. Like the idea of being on the other side of the world. Actually I think we could get in to Canada quite easily too and it is definitely on my list of 'countries that I would like to live in at some point'. So is France, love France. To me going somewhere English speaking (I use the term loosely! ) makes things easier but not necessarily better, I would jump at the opportunity to work somewhere french or spanish speaking, or Italy for that matter....

(Can I also defend both US & Canada by saying that Australia does not have a monopoly on wine and open spaces, both of which North America has in large quantities. Also some of Australia has a pleasant climate for some of the year, but large parts have a fairly unpleasant/difficult climate at times as well. Only time will tell which way it will shake down for me, I haven't decided yet!)

People in the UK probably know more about OZ then they do Canada because of all the Aussie soap operas shown in the UK and Aussies entertainers, actors and sports people over there, like Barry Humpries, Rolf Harris, Kylie Minouge, Shane Warne. Theres probably much more Aussie cultural infulence in the UK then Canadian.

oh bugger... I thought this was a genuine thread... I am such a total muppet sometimes aren't I?

When my circuits were wired no one factored in a function for detecting snarly ugly creatures who live under bridges and leap out at small fat goats happily trit trotting over the rickerty bridge

Did anyone else listen to junior choice on Saturday mornings? remember that song about the little car going beep beep beep as it opver takes the limosine , The limosine driver getting angrier and angrier and angrier as the little car driver keeps pace happily chugging along? draws up along side at 120 miles per hour and asks how to get our of second gear?

I think that is a nice analogy of the whole situation ...

what was it called and who wrote it?

How many people will I upset if I point out that in the broader scheme of things the influence in fact is from the UK upon their cultures, rather than visa versa?
