Hello to all

Cosmopolitan or Regional? Where should I go?

As a Registered Migration Agent, I have successfully assisted many of my clients with their skill migration visa applications. While the majority of my clients are based outside Australia, they have visited cosmopolitan cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in Australia. During the interview with them, some clients due to their occupations are only entitled to apply for the State nominated visa and the states sponsoring them are in or less populated cities such as Tasmania and The Northern Territory. I have realised many are rather reluctant to relocate to these two places.

Throughout my years of living in Australia, I have lived in major cities and small country town. This article aims to examine the pros and cons of living in major and less populated cities in Australia for overseas migrants.

Major cities are well known to be crowded, congested with expensive housing. While these cities are multicultural, they do not guarantee paid employment. On the other hand, in regional country towns, you enjoy tranquillity and serenity with affordable housing. Country towns such as Nhill, VIC and Dalwallinu, WA, Albury Wodonga and Wagga Wagga, NSW for example, are targeting professionals to cope with shortage of labours.

Many country towns in Australia nowadays are less isolated compared to twenty years ago. The little country town, Toowoomba located 1.5 hours from Brisbane had seen influx of overseas migrants over the last twenty years. I recall when I was a University student in Toowoomba twenty years ago, the only international community were mainly found in the university campus. Three years ago, I visited this country town and to my surprise, I saw so many international faces. These international community has brought in significant economic opportunities to the town.

In my opinion, living in a cosmopolitan city in Australia does not necessarily guarantee a smooth transition to Australia. I encourage overseas migrants not to shy away from less populated cities in Australia. Besides you are only committed to living there for two years out of the five.
