very pleased that they did. I spent two years travelling around the UK in my
early 20s and loved the place ... but was glad that I call Australia home.
You don't have to spend an astronomical amount on clothing and heating to
keep warm in winter for one thing!
My advice is to visit www.seekcom.au which is Australia's biggest online job
site (or one of them). That way you will be able to see what IT jobs are
available and what would suit you.You could also visit www.LJHooker.com
which should give an indication of property prices. Jobwise, the capital
cities - Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane would be your best bets. I grew up in
Sydney but my husband and I moved up to Brisbane 10 years ago. We have four
children and enjoy a much higher standard of living than we would in one of
the southern capitals - which is why we moved here.
