Moving to Sydney?

Living in Sydney

Sydney is an extremely diverse city with 20% of Australia's population living in and around the suburbs and it annually ranks in the worldwide Top 10 Most Livable Cities lists. It is an extremely popular destination for expats from all over the world, and with beautiful coastal neighbourhoods and idyllic sandy beaches, it’s no wonder why. 

You may think that living in the area will be nothing but hot weather, however the coastal city of Sydney has a few surprises when it comes to its climate. Being in the southern hemisphere bear in mind that summers in Australia are in the British ‘winter months’, e.g. December, January and February. This means that you can enjoy your Christmas relaxing on a beach, with much cooler temperatures in June, July and August. 

You might think that living in Sydney is all sun, sand and subtropical temperatures, but the coastal city has some surprises up its sleeve. The most important thing to remember is that because it’s in the southern hemisphere, summers in Australia come in December, January and February. That means you can look forward to Christmas and New Year’s Eve on the beach, while June, July and August will be cooler.

One of the most important factors to consider when moving abroad is to assess the cost of housing. Properties in Sydney are slightly lower than in London, averaging roughly £1,225 per month to rent a one bedroom apartment (about £250 cheaper per month than apartments in central London).
