Raising Your Kids Abroad

Have you ever dreamed of moving away and starting a new life somewhere new? This has always kind of been a dream of ours, to move our family somewhere new where our children can experience a different kind of life that they won't get here in the cornfields of rural Ohio. We recently had the opportunity to speak to someone who shared with us why Australia is such a great place to raise a family and we thought it would be fun to share with our readers too! 

Australia is home to Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Great Barrier Reef, Bondi Beach, countless of breathtaking beaches and islands, historic museums and landmarks, and so many other wildlife resources. It’s another world down under! Those are just some reasons why travelers visit the place. More than travelers are visiting and sightseeing however, there are lots of newly married couples that decide to start a family in Australia. Why? 

Australia is a country and continent surrounded by Indian and Pacific Oceans. Some of its known cities include capital Cranberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, and more. 

Why Australia?

Here are some of the reasons why moms (and dads) would want to start and raise a family in the land down under:

  1. Stable economy – when talking about family, of course, you always seek stability. You wish to raise your family in a very stable country wherein you need not to worry about losing job. Australia has a very stable economy. In fact, it is continuously growing which is the number one reason why families decide to migrate here. It will give you that protection and relief feeling that you hope for your family. In line with that, there are many job opportunities waiting for you.
  2. High minimum wage – minimum wage in Australia is a lot higher than the minimum wage in the US. Some people may say that the cost of living in Australia is pricey. Yes, it is indeed true but once you start receiving your paycheck, you will forget about it. It is all because the minimum wage salary is a lot higher that it can compensate to your basic needs plus wants. 
  3. Very good climate – another advantage of living in the land down under is the perfect climate. The air is fresh too, which is perfect for the kids and adults.
  4. Superb public school education – moms are particular about the education of the kids, well, you do not need to worry about that when you move here. The quality of public education is one of the best in the entire world. It will give bright future for your kids.
  5. Top of the line healthcare system – they are also proud of their healthcare system which expats can also enjoy. 
  6. Parks everywhere – another reason why you would want to start a family in this country is because of countless beautiful parks everywhere. Whether you are living in the North, South, or East side, you will find a beautiful park to let your kids play.
  7. Beautiful beaches – for parents who love the beach and who love to surf, Australia is a haven. You can find many wonderful coasts to surf to like the Gold Coast, which is considered as Surfers Paradise, Byron Bay, Margaret River, or Bells Beach, Victoria among many others. You can have wonderful adventure every weekend!

These are just some reasons why Australia is a perfect country to live with the entire family. In case you’re also planning to move to this beautiful country, there are display homes in Brisbane by Lend Lease. It is located in a beautiful and amazing community with nearby parks and other establishments perfect for raising kids and family. 

Have you ever had the desire to pack up the family and move somewhere else???
