Moving from Melbourne to Sydney

For seven consecutive years, Melbourne has been voted The Economist’s “Most Liveable city in the World” and obviously has a great deal to offer singles, couples and families. It is a city which is full to the brim with interesting people, places and artworks. Melbourne’s café culture is unparalleled anywhere in the world and it is renowned for its world class sporting events.. So why would you want to move from Melbourne?

Sometimes work, family and health can play important factors in why people have to move homes. One of the other factors is lifestyle. One aspect of Melbourne that many folks find a deal breaker is the weather! It often leaves something to be desired, with a popular phrase being that Melbournians can expect to experience “4 seasons in one day”.

Too often our friends from across the seas come to Melbourne, expecting blue skies and warm air all year round only to be taken by surprise by the moody Melbourne weather.
For those who want to keep that Melbourne lifestyle, but add warm weather, sunny skies and beautiful beach views, Sydney is the perfect destination. Sydney is the city that perfectly encompasses what it is to be an Australian city. Its unique architecture and leafy suburbs mean that this beachside metropolis is beautiful all year round.
