    I think you need to consider that AUS future success especially economically has a high correlation to success of China. This will ebb and flow IMO. Also if you you are of non Anglo ethnicity you may face some discrimination there. I would not let these factors deter you but they are considerations you should not ignore.

    Most pppl i know who moved to AUS and are not AUS (Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney in my exp), "hate" it after a few years. es lots of space and fresh products but high taxes, racism (the ones I talk about are Asian), slow and boring place (there is just so many Kangaroo you can see).

    I have always like the place, but only went there as a tourist. It's always very different tourist / resident....and of course your background is important too.

    The economy of Australia is getting worse because China doesn't buy as much as steel or something related to mines as before.. Aus is now suffering from a lot of problems with economic.. And if you have car and house there.. It charges you a lot of tax.. One of my friends was there a long time and his annual salary was lower than 100000 aud.. He had to paid, a sum of 50% tax approximately (housing + car+ income). He immigrated to Australia more than 30 years and now he wanted to go back hk

Then I could still get a part-time job, and get another A$2,000/month?

    What's the catch? What am I missing?
    Hi Jeff have you successfully applied for Australian PR?

    Lovelydays, what kind of part time job you could easily get over there?
