Regional Australia Moving Guide
We’re here to help you adjust to your new life with this guide to moving to regional Australia.
Mentally Prepare For Your Move
You’ll first need to think about moving to a regional town. This means uprooting your life to a much smaller area than you may be used to. You should expect that it may be a lot quieter and slower-paced than what you are used to.
More Affordable Property Prices
Moving to regional Australia means that homes are usually larger. Properties have more space and bigger yards, as well as being more affordable. In large cities like Sydney and Melbourne, property prices are at all-time highs. It’s become almost impossible for families to buy a house or apartment in big cities anymore. Luckily, there are still many affordable properties in regional areas, with an excellent quality of life.
Relaxation, Peace and Quiet
While some people may enjoy the hustle and bustle of city living, you can happily say goodbye to noise during all hours of the day and night. Regional living provides a more relaxed, peaceful, and quieter lifestyle. These days it’s something many people are finding more appealing.
Being in a city usually means more stress while driving due to all day and night traffic. There are more cars on the road, bumper to bumper commutes, and constant car horns. In regional Australia, traffic is a lot more relaxed, and everything is also within driving distance. Another benefit of reduced traffic is cleaner air due and less pollution.
Strong Community Spirit
With so many people in big cities, it’s often easy to feel completely anonymous. Like a stranger, even in places you frequently visit. Luckily, there are active, strong communities in regional areas, and everyone is made to feel welcome and included. There’s always some events happening around town, and friendly locals are always happy to say hello and stop for a chat in the street.
In regional towns, you can find activities to suit your interests. These include sporting groups, book clubs, walking groups, community choirs, playgroups, and many more. You can also connect with like-minded locals within your area online and build strong friendships. Facebook Groups and Meetup are a great way to meet new people. You can even start your own groups for any hobbies or interests you have.
