Why are so many people moving from the UK to Sydney?
Sydney is one of the most attractive cities on the planet — the pristine harbour, Sydney opera house and Sydney Harbour bridge are world-famous sights. But what else draws people to Sydney? Here are some of the reasons why so many people are moving to Sydney from the UK.
The economy has been booming for more than 20 years
The Australian economy is one of the strongest in the world and has been growing for more than 20 years. The unemployment rate is lower than in most European countries and there are plenty of opportunities for business owners and workers. It is a diverse industrialised economy with strong manufacturing, primary production, mining, tourism and finance sectors.
Sydney is a great place to raise a family
Residents of Sydney enjoy a world-class health care system and excellent public infrastructure. There are also plenty of entertainment options in the city including The Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Powerhouse Museum, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Taronga Zoo, and Sydney Aquarium. Sydney has excellent parks, restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs to enjoy. Your family will never run out of things to do.
Australia is a healthy place to live!
The environment in Australia is very clean, thanks to strong environmental protection policies from the government. The country also has a very strong sporting culture and Aussies love staying fit. You will find plenty of other people riding, running, skiing, swimming and enjoying outdoor activities in Sydney.
Sydney is home to some excellent schools
Australia has an excellent education system that usually ranks in the top 5 of all OECD countries. Schools are well funded and the federal government has a strong focus on improving the education system over the coming years.
School is compulsory for children between the ages of five and seventeen for children in New South Wales. Children can also attend pre-school, which starts as early as 3 years of age. The cost of attending a public school can range from $100 AUD to $1200 AUD a year. Private schools can cost up to thousands of dollars. Some of the best schools in Sydney include:
- St Andrew’s Cathedral School

Some tips for managing removals to Sydney from UK
Deal with finances early on
Make sure you have dealt with any financial or legal issues before leaving the UK. You can set up a bank account in Australia or use an expat bank account that some UK banks provide. Make sure your credit cards will work while in Australia without additional fees. Shop around for an affordable way to exchange your currency.
Keep your documentation organised
Having well organised documentation can really make the trip a lot easier! Keep your documents in a single location that is close to you during the entire journey. Collect medical records, your marriage certificate, drivers licenses, work records and so on.
Make sure your new home is ready to move into
Plan ahead to ensure the electricity, gas, water, and Internet are turned on at your new home in Sydney. This will make your first day in Sydney much less stressful!
Dealing with customs
The customs laws of Australia are fairly strict — especially when it comes to plant materials. They will confiscate and destroy most plant material because it presents a threat to their biosecurity. If you are bringing electrical items into the country, make sure they are compliant with Australian electricity standards. Make sure there are no dangerous items in your cargo (fuel, oil, banned weapons and so on). You can ask Schepens for more details on the items banned in Australia.
When you arrive at Australia, you will have to visit the immigration desk, where you will be asked a series of questions. You will have to present an incoming passenger card and visa, so have them ready. Your possessions maybe searched by the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service. It’s fairly simple process if you are aware of what items are not allowed. If you are unsure, ask your move coordinator.
Finally I unpacked every box and I can say that every item was in very good condition. I want to thank you for the very good service you offered me and I recommended your company to my friends. Every step of the process was very professionally done and your crew consists of nice and competent people. Thank you very much for everything.
