Not 100% sure where to go and was wondering if any expats have any information on either Perth or Brisbane that will help us make more of a definite decision of where to move to.

All i'll say is know that Brisbane has more of a humid sub-tropical heat wheras Perth is a dryer often hotter place.From Brisbane one can drive to Sydney (about 600 miles/1000k) at a push.We are committed to go to Adelaide as we have friends there and liked it the 3 times we've been.

We were surprised at how quiet and small Perth was - too much so for us.

Well done, nice position to be in.
Must be wierd not knowing quite where to head for.

I would say you have to visit before deciding as I said before we where 100% sure Perth was for us.

Have noticed you're in the East Mids, I'm in Northants myself .Hi guys,

Second post to forum - haven't had the chance to keep up with what is going on recently.

Good news - finally got acceptance letter this week so we're off to Australia once sorted.Thanks Inadvance
I'm sure there is an earlier post which asks your very question. That it didn't seem to have an atmosphere, but that is my opinion it is beautiful and you could tell the place had money.From Brisbane one can drive to Sydney (about 600 miles/1000k) at a push.

Hi,

We where adament on Perth Oz to live before we went out there and visited

Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane Coasts.

When we flew over Brisbane into the airport you could see how lush and green the place was, we loved it here as we are leaving the Uk as we want a more laid back lifestyle and in Brisbane that is definalty the case, it has the amazing greenery of the mountains that cascade down to some stunning beaches,

Every Aussy I spoke to whether it was in Perth or Adelaide said how beautiful Queensland was and the Sunshine Coast. Failing that any pointers (websites etc) would be appreciated.It didn't appear to be as laid back as the east.
Mash,

Yes it is a bit weird not knowing where to go but if I can manage to narrow it down it may help when we finally move out there.

I'd say winters are cooler in Perth than Brisbane and of course the Sun rises in the Pacific and sets in the Indian Ocean. That it didn't seem to have an atmosphere, but that is my opinion it is beautiful and you could tell the place had money.

I thought Perth was stunning, but a ghost town, a very well off place as me andhubby discovered one day walking around town after surfing and was wearing our boardies and rashers and the looks we got from people and I was amazed. Brisbane is a different type of heat can be very humid.

Mash.The suburbs where more laid back but it was just so vast.

It realy is a hard call and it is,nt a small place like some people try too make out over 1 million people live there.

We are heading for Brisbane as we preferred the general feel of it and the surrounding areas such as the sunshine and gold coast and the hinterland areas - it just seemed to have more to offer us.The suburbs where more laid back but it was just so vast.
Hey stan,

Thanks for the info.

Not sure if I'd fancy the drive tho!

I know i said in earlier post Gold coast for me ,but don,t discount Perth I was,nt going to visit the place ,but so many people said must so i did and i,m glad i did it is a great place feltmore european than east side nice dry heat.Beaches are lovely, but we did feel a real sense of isolation.

Perth is more isolated from any other major capital.

Guess I'll have to keep looking and see what others have to say.

It was a difficult choice for us but Queensland felt right for us, there is alot of work for my hubby and we can buy a house pretty close to the beach so we can go surfign that won't break the bank and of course everyone is more laid back that will suit me any time.com.

Thanks!

Hi,

Can you please give us a bit more info about the two cities and why it is a very hard call after visiting perth.

Good luck

Carrianne
Carrianne,

Seems like a lot of people who ahve replied to this have said that Perth isn't really for them, plus i have been told by an Oz friend that Perth is 'out in sticks' compared to the other cities in Oz.

Perth is more isolated from any other major capital.

I'd say winters are cooler in Perth than Brisbane and of course the Sun rises in the Pacific and sets in the Indian Ocean.

All i'll say is know that Brisbane has more of a humid sub-tropical heat wheras Perth is a dryer often hotter place.au/index.Like we had been told.But it is definitely all down to personal opinion.

Good luck

Carrianne

Being able to get a job easily may also determine location but as you say you have to like the place to live there in the first place, kinda like buying a house really - you know what you like.Originally posted by keaton
