Home to some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, Sydney does not disappoint. With countless famous beaches like Manly, Bondi, and Coogee as well as the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, it’s easy to see why visitors and migrants flock to Sydney in their thousands.

But for those who live there, Sydney offers a whole lot more than Insta-worthy landmarks. With countless fabulous beaches and coves as well as plenty of accessible hiking trails and tracks, it combines the conveniences of modern city living with the freedom of rural living. Sure, if you prefer the hustle and bustle of the city or like to live amongst quirky bars, you could choose Kings Cross, Potts Point or any of the Inner West suburbs, but if you prefer to surf first thing in the morning or run along the coast, there are plenty of options along the Eastern Suburbs or Northern beaches to choose from.

Put simply, Sydney has a little bit of everything. It has plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, and indoor activities to keep you entertained, but it also offers a wonderfully family-friendly outdoor lifestyle too.


Although Melbourne does have some beaches within reasonably close proximity to the city, this isn’t the reason most residents choose to live there. Whilst Sydney might have the next-level beaches, Melbourne offers a bit more on the culture front. Packed with street art, rooftop bars and with a fabulous music scene, Melbourne is a great city for those who enjoy sports, art, music and more. 

Melbourne is also home to a diverse range of people and the cuisine thoroughly reflects it. So if you like trying foods from all corners of the world, then Melbourne is a fabulous choice for you.


Compared to Melbourne and Sydney, Adelaide is a much more affordable city for buying and living in general. It also has plenty of beaches to choose from (although some may require a short drive to get to) and a warm climate throughout most of the year. It offers plenty of opportunities for nature lovers to explore but perhaps what Adelaide is most famous for is its wonderful world-class wine country.


Like Adelaide, Perth is considered a much more affordable city than Sydney and Melbourne. But make no mistake, although it may not cost as much, the quality of life is just as good if not better. Perth combines all the conveniences of urban living with the laid back attitude of beach life. It has plenty of open spaces, wonderful beaches and has great weather most of the year. It’s also widely regarded as a great place to raise a family. It’s therefore really no wonder that there are so many property developers in Perth at the moment.


Many people forget to consider Hobart or Tasmania as it’s a hop, skip and a ferry ride away from the mainland of Australia, but Hobart is well worth considering. For starters, Tasmania as a whole is ridiculously beautiful and offers an adventure playground for outdoor lovers. It also offers a laid back, affordable lifestyle as well as a thriving cultural scene. From jazz festivals to modern art galleries, there’s so many ways to get creative in Hobart!


So there you have it, a brief guide to various cities across Australia. Of course, Australia offers much more than just cities. So if you’re serious about making a move here, make sure you explore some rural areas too!
