Moving to Australia
Australia is the largest island in the world and is home to more than 24 million people. From gorgeous sandy beaches to long stretches of coastal road and diverse landmarks across the nation. From Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) to the spectacular Great Barrier Reef in far north Queensland, to the famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia attracts millions of tourists and migrants each year.
While the two countries are only 2,158 kilometres apart (Auckland to Sydney), there are a lot of differences, moving to Australia from NZ, that require careful planning, consideration and organisation. Knowing when to go, what to move, and how to transport your furniture items can be difficult without professional moving advice.
