Australia

Moving to Perth from the UK

With an array of stunning parks and beaches and a climate similar to the Mediterranean, moving to Perth has clear benefits. The city also offers excellent employment opportunities and a high standard of living due to its strong, stable economy built on abundant natural resources. Perth is undoubtedly remote, sandwiched between desert and ocean, yet it retains a cultured, sophisticated feel with sleek modern buildings and diverse dining options. As a result of being one of the closest Australian cities to the UK, its has a large number of British migrants and sometime nicknamed “Little Britain” by some.

Getting Around
Perth has a clean and efficient network of buses, trains and ferries all operated by Transperth, or Transwa in more rural areas. Five main train lines link the city to many of Perth’s suburbs and is a popular choice for commuters. As well as the wider bus routes, there is a free ‘CAT’ bus service running throughout the city centre. Perth’s simple, clear road network is driver friendly and, like all of Australia, there is a huge emphasis on road safety.

Perth’s Main Suburbs

Applecross
The central southern suburb of Applecross offers beautiful houses, quiet jacaranda lined avenues and stunning views across the Swan River. It’s a very short commute to the city centre and has excellent schools and the best playground in Perth.

Burns Beach
With its enviable location overlooking the Indian Ocean, Burns Beach is fast becoming one of the most sort after locations in Western Australia. The northern suburb’s beautiful beaches and pristine parklands are perfect for families thinking of moving to Perth.

Yanchep
Yanchep is located on Perth’s stunning northern coastline and boasts both a beautiful, sheltered beach and spectacular National Park. It is perfect for those looking for a suburb with a rural feel yet also has good links to the city and all the amenities a busy family could want.

Carramar
Carramar is a quiet suburb with a warm, community feel just 30 minutes north of the city centre. It is centred on the Carramar shopping village and community centre and is very close to Lake Joondalup and Neerabup National Park.

Jobs Opportunities
Western Australia has enjoyed high economic growth, largely thanks to its resources industry. Asian economies sourced many of its raw materials from Western Australia. While the mining industry has since cooled, the state’s hospitality sector is flourishing, with plenty of hotels, bars and restaurants opening up. Skilled workers in Perth benefit from some of the highest incomes in Australia. You can view the latest skilled occupation list and migration news at www.migration.wa.gov.au.

Property
Three-quarters of Perth’s houses are detached. According to Realestate.au the median house price for Perth at the time of writing is AUS$810,000 and the average rental price is AUS$410 per week. There is currently plenty of housing available with lots of new development going in the suburbs with new apartment blocks and land releases.
