Becoming a Sydneysider is easy! While the world-famous icons like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge never lose their wow factor, there is much, much more to enjoy. Get the ferry across the harbour to Manly and grab an ice-cream at the weekend. Discover over 100 beaches and nature walks spotted all over. Immerse yourself in the multicultural hub or get into clubbing and karaoke with Sydney’s thriving nightlife.
Voted the world’s most liveable city, multiple times, why would you hesitate to move here? Discover the art and culture which attracts graduates from all over the world – think museums, architecture, graffiti lanes and more. Not only does Melbourne have arguably the best food scene in Australia, but the coffee is also top notch. Take a road trip and explore the Great Ocean Road on your days off.
Want a higher standard of living with lower living costs? Canberra is for you. Famous for its national museums and galleries, Canberra is a hotspot for culture. It’s green, safe, progressive and diverse. Love animals? Check out the zoo and maybe volunteer to help save endangered wildlife. It’s easy to get around and easy to explore nearby attractions, from ski fields to national parks.
250+ days of sun a year, what more could you want? A city surrounded by beaches with a river in the middle, Brisbane offers so much more than sunshine. The excellent transport takes you to great food, culture and festivals. An eco-friendly hub with over 2,500 parks, it’s the perfect place for picnics. Exploring outside of the city, you’ll find the Sunshine Coast on one side or the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks on the other.
I was based in New Zealand before moving to Australia for my placement. I was curious about working overseas but was not sure about it. But now I can say that moving to a different country has been the main highlight. The ability to work overseas and broaden my horizons has been very beneficial to both my career and personal development. I really enjoy working with the company I am placed with and FDM has been helpful in giving me the opportunities to do so.
Initially I was based in Melbourne, and I wasn’t interested in relocating for a job. But when the opportunity to join a big energy company in Brisbane presented itself, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and go for it. My experience was very good and FDM was very supportive – they covered the costs of temporary accommodation and my plane ticket to Brisbane. I am very glad I decided to take the risk and relocate to Brisbane. Not only is the weather miles better, but I’ve definitely grown a lot as a person and became much more independent. I also used the opportunity to make new friends, pick up new habits and do new things.
I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to be able to work in another state – though I was hesitant, and my preference was to stay in Brisbane as my family reside there and I knew moving can be stressful at times. Now after experiencing it myself, I am glad I took the opportunity as Sydney has so much to offer as a city and I have become much more independent since moving out of home. FDM helped me to be proactive and I feel that I have achieved so much already throughout this journey. FDM does regular check-ins to ensure I am settling in well, and they are always available if I need help.
