Perth vs London - Why Make The Move?

People often think the number one reason to move to Australia is for the fantastic weather. However, there are far more reasons that increasing numbers of Brits are moving to Australia. When comparing the lifestyle in London to that in Perth, Western Australia, there are so many positives to justify upping sticks and making the move to the other side of the world.

Why Move To Perth?

Perth and its surrounding suburbs is flanked with stunning coastline, meaning your weekends can be spent in the great outdoors, soaking up the sun and staying fit with water sports, as opposed to fighting to find a table at a restaurant, or queuing for hours in traffic.

Perth Sights

Although London has Hyde Park, Perth boasts Kings Park, which is the world’s largest inner city park, meaning you can escape to the wilderness and take in nature just a stone’s throw from the Perth CBD.

Perth History

Even though Perth doesn’t have the same volume of historical points of interest as London, the Western Australian Museum does have a fantastic display of Aboriginal artefacts going back a whopping 40,000 years before Europeans came to Australia - as well as quite a few interesting art galleries to indulge your inner culture vulture.

Perth Weather

Believe it or not - Perth’s average rainfall is actually higher than London - SHOCKER! Although in even the coldest months the temperature barely dips below 10 C, the summers can scorch you in the mid-40s, but alas, your winters can still be pretty rainy - just not as cold!

Cost Of Living In Perth

Now on the financial side of things… Perth is the world’s most isolated city, so the cost of consumer goods tends to be around 30% higher than in London, however housing and public transport is a lot more affordable meaning you can save your pennies to balance out the difference.

Perth Health Care

If you’re planning on moving your family over to Perth from London, then you’ll also be pleased to know that this city offers excellent healthcare and a lot less pollution than London, and it’s a lot safer than London, meaning your kids may have a much rosier childhood!

  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • They explained each process of the application and kept us up-to-date on what was happening at each stage; telling us when we needed to be doing things and in what order – they made the whole process very straight forward.

    – Christopher Barber & Jayne Harris, New Zealand
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • All going well. Thank you, after all the work that was put in from your office with regards our emigration we cannot thank you enough, again many thanks for everything!
    – Michael Coombes, Australia
  • We’ll keep you updated about how we get on but for now Lin and I would like to sincerely thank you, Richard, Magda and everyone else at OE who have made the process of getting our visas so straightforward for us. You are all so professional and we have felt at every stage that we are in the best hands possible. Your customer service is truly outstanding!
