Guide to Moving from Brisbane to Perth

Moving interstate is a task in itself and when you live in Australia, moving interstate can be similar to moving to a new country. Moving from Brisbane to Perth is no exception to this as you will be moving from one side of Australia to the other. Moving to Perth could be the adventure that you need.

What makes Perth such a great place to live

Perth. That Australian City in the far west that sometimes gets overshadowed by its eastern cousins of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Whilst Perth’s Melbourne and Sydney’s proximity might make them more desirable destinations, Perth can offer you a lifestyle that is unlike any other Australian city.

Perth is the sunniest city in Australia and has more hours of sunshine that any other capital city. Meaning that you can live an outdoor lifestyle even when you work a 9-5 job. Perth is home to plenty of entertainment opportunities such as the Perth Zoo, the Perth Institute of Arts and multiple sports centres that play host to many of Australia’s most prominent sporting teams such as the West Coast Eagles and Western Force.

With a population of less than 2 million, Perth has managed to retain its sense of community, unlike many of Australia’s larger cities. Whilst it still offers those who live there all the perks of a big city such as entertainment, facilities and a great cultural scene, you will find that people are more than willing to throw a smile in your direction and you will feel welcomed from the get go.

Whilst Perth may be the most isolated of the Australian cities, it is worth mentioning that for those who live in Perth, a short 3-hour flight will have you on the beaches in Bali, sipping on cocktails and snapping up bargains at the markets.

How to choose your new home in Perth

Perth is a beautiful coastal city with a relaxed and easy-going lifestyle. The different areas of the city have different things to offer those who live there. If you would like to continue to live close to the beach then Burns Beach, Cottesloe and Freemantle might be suburbs that you are interested in. If you are looking for a suburb which is more family orientated then you might consider looking towards Ocean Reef, Guildford or Atwell.
