Reasons to move to Regional Australia

In 2019 nearly all of Australia’s new migrants settled in Sydney and Melbourne, while many of the country’s regional areas are experiencing a decline in residents. While moving to rural Australia may seem like an overwhelming undertaking for many, it does hold some wonderful hidden gems that cannot be experienced in the big smoke. 

More relaxed lifestyle

Who wants to constantly run the rat race? If you’re looking for a change of pace or a better work-life balance, then moving to regional Australia is the perfect place for you.  With the average daily commute time 66 minutes in 2019 for those living in cities, moving to a regional town brings with it shorter work commute times. It’s not just the shorter travel times that makes living in regional Australia a more relaxed living environment, the air is cleaner and looking at the stunning natural landscapes, one can’t help but take a deep breath and relax. 

Affordable

The cost of real estate in regional Australia is much lower than that of the major cities, with the median housing prices in cities like Sydney reaching the $1 million mark, compared to the average $275,000 for a 3-bedroom house in regional Queensland’s Mackay.

Apart from lower housing costs, with shorter commutes and more space, the cost of living overall is significantly lower in regional areas, compared to its big city counterparts. 

Quality of life

Regional Areas in general have a smaller population compared to larger cities. This means that the levels of air pollution are low, with fresh clean air readily available. Let’s not forget the beautiful natural landscape and wildlife, meaning you can’t go wrong relocating to a regional area. If 2020 and COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that we need and desire a work-life balance. Relocating to a regional area makes this easier than in a big city thanks to it’s more relaxed environment without the hustle and bustle. 

World-class education system

Australia boasts some of the world’s highest ranking educational institutions and is renowned for its world-class education system. The public school system in regional Australia is well funded and generally smaller than schools in larger cities, providing students with high quality, tailored education. In the QS World University Rankings 2020, a number of regional universities featured in the top 20, including Townsville’s James Cook University and the University of Newcastle.  

Skills shortages and visa pathways

For those looking to study in regional Australia, if you want to apply for a permanent residency, there are 5 points for students who have acquired at least one degree, a diploma or a trade qualification, by studying and living in regional Australia. Moving to Australia on a regional visa can open up the door for those choosing to apply for permanent residency too. One can apply for Australian permanent residency after living and working for three years in regional Australia (provided all permanent residency requirements are met).
