Moving to the UK from Australia – our story
If you’re thinking or dreaming of moving to the UK from Australia, or you are planning an awesome trip right now, you’re in the right place.
We’ve moved to London from Australia twice! We love London and the opportunity it provides for careers, travel, adventure and fun. Not to mention the digital nomad community in London, so close to Europe and brimming with creative business owners and entrepreneurs, you’re bound to find a life-changing experience.
Have a chat to any other Australians working in London or expats living in London and you’ll hear a similar story – up to six months can be tough, but after that, you’ll be a little addicted.
Expats and digital nomads based in London
Cooper and I are Aussies living in London very happily – five years and counting. We explore the best places to eat, shop and create, and as expats living in London and digital nomads ourselves, we are always keen to meet like-minded expats and share experiences.
Australians working in London
As bloggers, digital nomads and currently professionals in full-time employment, we relate to other Australians working in London, and those who aim to do so: what your questions are, how you get a job, what to do about a visa.
Here we’ve collected stories and advice on our experience, and we’re always open to chatting to anyone thinking of moving to the UK from Australia, or anywhere for that matter.
Have a look through some of our stories and let us know in the comments anywhere on the site if you have specific questions. We can offer advice, put you in touch with expat communities in London and want to inspire you to make some exciting plans!
