The Location:
This City is extremely clean, tidy, efficient, safe and low crime compared to just about any other city. Very “outdoor” and “environmentally” focused and truly unique in that you have this CBD with excellent work opportunities literally set amongst stunning bush land that is always only a 5 min walk away from anywhere. If you love bushwalking, cycling, exploring, being active etc then it’s a win win.
The climate is favourable – having four seasons is a treat – and the air is fresh, only two hours from the beach, two hours to the snow and a little longer drive for those big city experiences. Direct International flights operating from the local airport, making travelling abroad easy too.
The road network and lack of traffic is just awesome, it’s a pleasure to drive around, you arrive relaxed, calm and not feeling rushed at your destination.
An amazing network of well-educated broad thinking professionals from the universities and local business.

There is a thriving start-up and entrepreneurial culture now and many highly successful businesses have been born out of this City because the whole ecosystem and all the support from the Uni’s and government is located right here. The city is full of innovative thinkers.

Awesome restaurant and cafe culture, you have a wonderful array of choice, the city has more restaurants per capita than any other Australian city…
