5 Reasons To Move Your Family To Perth

Perth is a highly sought-after destination for many families looking to move abroad. With so much to consider for all members of the family, it has something for everyone, from work to school to leisure. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider moving your family to Perth, Australia.

High Employment Opportunities

Like much of Australia, the economy in Perth is strong. There are thriving industries that provide employment for skilled workers including trades, I.T, construction, mining, healthcare, education and more. If you have the skills that Perth needs, you will find yourself in demand and have few problems finding work.

Great Education

You won’t have to worry about your children getting a good education if you move to Perth. The city’s schools can compete with the best in the country, with a big focus on literacy and numeracy as well as creating positive, respectful attitudes towards hard work. Extra curricular activities are encouraged, and you may find that your children have more options to learn a range of skills including languages and I.T.

The Perth Lifestyle

The best way to describe the lifestyle in Perth is that it’s relaxed. Leisure time is incredibly important to locals and it’s not difficult to completely separate yourself from work. A BBQ with friends and a few beers is an incredibly popular and budget friendly pastime, and spending the day at the city’s beautiful beaches costs next to nothing. If you really want to embrace Perth lifestyle, a house with a swimming pool will help you do just that.

The People

Perth people are friendly and welcoming, making it much easier to make new friends and eradicate any homesickness you may experience. With people from around the world, you can expect to mix with many cultures and backgrounds, providing suburbs full of individuality and character and a chance for everyone to feel at home. There’s a big UK expat community especially – and they can’t all be wrong to want to stay!

The Weather

This is one thing that can make people want to move half way around the world and one of the reasons why it’s so easy to settle into a new life in Perth. Warm weather and blue skies in summer mean that you spend much of your time outdoors just because you can! And no one can appreciate this more than a Brit! You can expect a pleasant average of around 30 degrees Celsius in the summer, sometimes reaching as high as 40, which can bring the odd thunderstorm. Winter on the other hand, while much milder than the UK, can see temperatures drop to zero at night.
