Which is the best city in Australia to live? Posted on April 20, 2023 by Anonymous Which is the best city in Australia to live?
Any with no Australians.
That's all of the capital cities then
That’s Austria in te eu, not Australia,..
Australia hasn't been the same since the Croatians stole Tasmania.
GO BACK TO CHINA WOGS!
are croatian australians based or retarded?
Retarded. Serbs are the worst Australians so they're close
Adelaide - cheaper than anywhere else, you're close to everywhere. Lots to see and do, has an old world feel
Sydney - Like london or any big city, very expensive, lots to see and do.
Melbourne - hipster central, medium city, lots to see and do, a bit expensive but its ok if you get out of the city. Close to everything.
Perth - far from everywhere, literally nothing to do, most places close at 5pm. Great if all you want to do is stare at the ocean and look at some rocks. Expensive living costs, currently has the worst rental crisis of anywhere
What else do you want to know, ask me some questions
Tell me about Tasmania and Hobart.
Tasmania as a whole feels like a never ending country town. Hobart is relatively small but limited opportunities - nice for a visit for sure. Tassie is rugged and nature-orientated, but honestly you'll never see more road kill on the roads anywhere compared to it sadly.
How's the cooming there?
I wouldn't know, but probably comparable to mainland. A bit less choice perhaps.
Stinky boxed fat chicks.
Tasmania is probably the worst place in earth for cooming for a multitude of reasons
Good if you like roadkill or trying to fuck the ute isself
Full of illiterate meth smoking unemployed retards with facial tattoos.
Contrary to what others have said the highest and tightest rental squeeze of any capital and weirdly no jobs to provide the income needed to live in Hobart
It’s a riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped in a residential lease contract
great if you love sighsee but the women are like shaved gorillas
>Perth - far from everywhere, literally nothing to do, most places close at 5pm. Great if all you want to do is stare at the ocean and look at some rocks. Expensive living costs, currently has the worst rental crisis of anywhere
Thats weird because coming from a leaf I noted perth as much more livable than here. Its one of the places id consider if I could get PR
IIRC it compared well against Toronto with a numbeo COL comparison, and I could rent a house in Perth for what a bachelors apartment would run me an hours drive from the GTA
I'm Canadian and I have lived in Perth for 13 years. Love it because I hate winter and enjoy motorbikes year round.
what about Gold Coast?
>literally nothing to do
thats what surfers want you to think
pretty much anyone who's seriously into surfing ends up in WA at some point
This is bascially right on all accounts esp. Perth being a shithole. From Adelaide but (+):
Hobart: Great food and parks/wildlife is well funded, some of the best outdoorsing you can do in Australia. Houses are cheaper and there's a decent job market esp. if you work in Health.
Darwin: Set your clocks back to 1980 re. the working culture. People do fuck all work-wise, some of the laziest people in Australia. You will have your shit stolen or broken into at some point sooner or later. Cheap flights to and from Bali.
Alice Springs: Expensive rent + you will have your shit stolen or smashed. Tons of Melbourne hipsters who go there with a white-saviour complex and a social work degree to work for an NGO on absurd (100k+) money.
>You will have your shit stolen or broken into at some point sooner or later
If a war happens its like the most secure place on earth to have your family, direct migration crises are unlikely with 4000+ miles of open ocean in every direction, its not susceptible to any natural disasters Im aware of besides drought/wildfires, and its reasonably priced by western standards
In a world with the internet/online shopping/telecommutes, nobody actually needs to live in centrally placed shitholes like NYC/London/Hong Kong. Some distance from major population centres is a bonus IMO.
Imagine getting all your food and supplies from trains and trucks that travel 3000km from the Eastern seaboard.
"Direct migration crises" don't happen anywhere in Australia... we just import x amt of Indians to keep house prices from depreciating and backfill nursing home/fruit picking jobs. if you want distance from a city centre but also enjoy the locality of having some remote access to amenities you're better off considering country South Australia or Victoria.
>Imagine getting all your food and supplies from trains and trucks that travel 3000km from the Eastern seaboard.
I checked numbeo, perth food prices are actually comparable or slightly cheaper than toronto
Theres a few weird things that are quite expensive, but the basics like eggs/dairy/protein are cheaper than what Im used to
>"Direct migration crises" don't happen anywhere in Australia... we just import x amt of Indians to keep house prices from depreciating and backfill nursing home/fruit picking jobs
Exactly, so the quality of those that are let in is higher than in places like england or the southern us where any carpetbagging shitskin that feels like jumping the border can do so regardless of criminal record/skills/background
>if you want distance from a city centre but also enjoy the locality of having some remote access to amenities you're better off considering country South Australia or Victoria.
Seems kinda expensive though.
Im not that obsessed with perth, it just seems like a pretty decent option for western cities
Average pay discounting retail and unemployed is like 150k in this country
Median pay in Australia is 50k/year
its 80 average is 100
Yeah now discount unemployed and retail kids jobs and it’s 100
>close to everything
Not true at all.
If you have a car, you have to go places early morning or late at night. All other hours the road system is gridlocked and it takes hours to get anywhere.
If you don’t have a car and you’re using the tram system, going anywhere usually means getting sent into the city centre and then back out to wherever you’re going. Takes forever.
And your journey is almost always delayed even further because the retards that designed the tram system made them run along the roads, meaning they spend most of their time sitting in gridlocked traffic.
To go anywhere in Melbourne takes minimum 40 minutes.
It would take me an hour and a half to get to work, often 2 hours.
Melbourne is also a very run down, dirty place. The CBD especially is ugly as fuck. Not helped by how dreary and bleak the place is in winter.
Melbourne’s redemption comes from how many cool bars and venues there are, and how many events are going on. Sports, music, theatre, whatever you’re into, there will pretty much always be something happening in Melbourne.
If it wasn’t for this cultural scene it would be a shit tier city.
living in australia is like living in hell. australians are some of the most retarded, yet smug people on the planet, and the australian government is adversarial to its people in almost all of its manifestations. dealing with any auHispanice of the state here just feels like its purposely designed to hinder you, if not outright attack you. income and capital gains tax here is fucking absurd if you make any serious cash, the cities are either expensive and fucking boring or absurdly expensive and alright, and all of them are plagued with aggressive homeless and ice addict zombies. the beaches here are gorgeous and the nature and national parks that are available are great, although they don't even come close to making up for all of the above.
where are you living, this doesn't describe anywhere in australia I've been.
could it all be in your head?, you feel the world is out to get you when in reality it doesn't care what you do
>where are you living
>doesn't describe anywhere in australia I've been
so you, who has visited australia, knows it better than me, who lives here and has for my entire life
>could it all be in your head?
back to plebbit
The fucking yanks all do it m8. I helped another anon coming to Australia in another thread and then I got told I'm giving incorrect information and I don't know Australia like they do because they'd been here for a week holiday before. I've only been here for almost 40 years and born here what the fuck would I know
When I visited Australia, my Australian friends gave me bad, wrong information about lots of things. I just learned to ignore them and had a great time at my own pace.
I don't think they misled me on purpose, it's just that they view things through the lense of a mired local stuck in his situation, rather than a temporary visitor with a fresh perspective.
BTW you cunts drink way too much. Get another hobby holy shit.
not the guy you're replying to, but i've lived here for nearly a decade now. he's not wrong (although i think a lot of the nature here is ugly).
australia is fucked imagine simping for the government lmao
What? Dealing with the state is hard? You have fucking digital drivers licences, on-demand up to the minute income and tax data on smartphone apps, you can pay for and renew registration on a car from your phone while you’re in bed the night before it expires. Australia is the easiest country in the entire world. If you live here and you aren’t a HUGE success by whatever metric is most important to you, you are a loser.
>everything works on paper bro i swear just wait until you get six year old fines coming through the mail bro and then them taking over a week to respond to you bro you'll see how easy it is to deal with them bro i swear just wait until they send you to court for a fine you've never heard about
>broooo i swear this strain doesn't give you anxiety bro just wait until customs takes your phone for over a week when you return to the country bro and there's nothing you can do about it i swear bro just hit it once
This is somewhat of an exaggeration, though Australia is an odd case of a superficially developed country, with all the trappings of high tech, non-slum-looking, skyscrapers, but also it's kind of a facade, with serious housing shortages, an economy that makes nothing (not even war machines like the US), a heavily resource based economy, but then also a service sector. It's like it first and thirdworld maxxed. A sort of development anti-centrist.
Australia is like a modernisation project that kinda failed and turned into a US military base with mines, full of refugees.
Aus leadership lacks vision and so apes US movements. So you get the equivalent of an annoying shitlib or a boomer cuck conservative.
There is a big gap between what Australia could be vs what it is.
not mine, we're full.
Sydney - Best balance of weather, best beaches close to city, expensive, worse nightlife than it should be for a city that size
Melbourne - Worst weather (still better than most other countries), expensive (but less than sydney), best nightlife + 'culture', average beaches
Brisbane - Great weather, doesn't have beaches close to city but beaches nearby (sunshine coast + gold coast) are some of the best in the world, was cheaper but expensive right now, better nightlife for a city of its size.
Perth - Great weather, good beaches, poor nightlife, same price situation as Brisbane, far away (5hr flight) from anywhere else
Sydney = Melbourne > Brisbane > Perth in terms of job markets.
As a Brisbanite, Sydney if you're rich, Melbourne if you're a city person and enjoy going out, and Brisbane if you enjoy the surf or outdoors
Is Australian internet really that bad?
not so much anymore, but the problem is you're ~200ping from any servers
even top 3 most played games like CS or Dota you're having to connect to SEA servers because aussie servers have 10min queue times for a match
what's the coldest place to live in australia?
canbruh or hobart
Middle of nowhere outback so you can be on that stupidity redneck shit and hang wit da animalz
I’m Texan and want to move to AUS. The accent is cool, I love the lingo, biodiversity is cool, I like the natural beauty, lots of Asian women, all with the benefit of the same language. You have a choice of rural or metropolitan areas, Highway 1 would be awesome to bike on, and public transport there mogs it here where we have nothing and I hate being cat dependent. Yeah I know the economy is a meme but on the flip side the consumer protection laws are better. I won’t be discouraged by all the “grass is always greener on the other side” types who say to not move there, but I’m open to truthpilled anons who live there or have moved. Not OP btw
It's a good place. Politically, a pushover, and state level politics are basically 1920s US machine politics.
The education system is cooked, with the next generation of teachers essentially being taught to lay the groundwork for pedophilia by pushing trans acceptance for 3 year olds, "socialisation" as the aim of ed instead of development of power and independence, also the deconstruction and abolition of the notion of childhood innocence. I'm about 50% sure that my lecturer was a pedophile.
>"socialisation" as the aim of ed instead of development of power and independence
You've just described American education as well, though this aim is only stated implicitly. They'd never be stupid enough to own that they want to brainwash our kids here.
What the fuck are you talking about? Where are you being educated? My gf is studying to be a teacher and the most globohomo shit she’s taught is how to cater to abos and autists which you have to admit is an essential skill if you’re going to have them in the mainstream education system.
I have never seen any emphasis placed on socialisation, the most important thing is literacy, numeracy and comprehension which you can see in every school gearing their students up for NAPLAN every year.
I work on the block in that picture.
adelaide is nice and calm. too slow for many people but the city is very alive, suburbs can feel like a country town tho, a quite city
Australia seems like a worse version of Canada.
Quite the contrary, Canada is a worse version of Australia. Who the fuck wants cold, spergs and onionsoys when you can have heat, beer and surfers?
Canada is undeniably part of the third world now
ironically enough this guy types English like a poojeet
why are they so self-hating, bros?
Same as him but I was planning on moving to Montreal from Hongcouver.
Given up until I get a degree and leave this shit country.
haha go back to your country ugly chink or indian your parents were even bigger gays than you
I've applied to a working holiday VISA to Aus, and will probably be flying there in August. Any anon here who've done that?
Good luck being forced to pick fruit as slave labour
I'm moving to sydney with a whv in august too. Do you already decided in wich city you will arrive?
I'm worried that sydney will be too expensive if i don't find a job right away but i already booked my flight so i'll have to deal with that
>Working holiday VISA
>thinking he's going to be living in Sydney
Anon you're going to be in the country in the middle of fucking nowhere hundreds of kms from the nearest city on a farm or station, what are you talking about living in Sydney
I did exactly this, got my residency about a year ago, emailing my lawyer to start the ball rolling on citizenship Monday. This is the land of milk and honey but you have to remember that every single poor Australian is there because they’re worthless subhumans not smart enough to make it in the easiest country on earth.
give me one reason why would you want to be a 18-45 year old man in australia in the current year? its a horrible place to do business, see reasons below
>>ATO tax garden gnomes up your arse
taxed horribly each trade
>>can't even make a business without being raked over red tape
cost of living
>>good luck making a lemonade stall , you'll need a permit that costs $500 plus insurance and a tip kek
is a massive rip off and unattainable if your under 35
low gdp growth
gibs draining your youth and ambition
why live here when the best u can be is a wagie driving in rush hour in the mornings to pay your mortgage and feed your fat wife and bastard kids til you die at 60
just go to asia and enjoy your fuking youth
its a different world
don't waste your youth in aussie cunts..
come on up and enjoy
>> $1000 a month 2 bedroom CBD apartments
>> $10 all you can eat feasts
>> 7 days a week night life, dining and entertainment
>> easy pleasant and feminine women
alot more business opportunites
since you can pay fuck all wages you can scale up profits
there is a need for aussie premium goods and services
eg. aussie themed cafe/bar/juice shop
aussie meat, fruits and veges are in demand and there isn't enough supply for locals
the fat boomers with SEAmonkey wives learnt the truth the hard way after 50+ years, a lifetime of waging and a divorce rape
lads skip the shit sandwich australia in 2023 makes you eat and learn from their mistakes while you are still young
I'm working towards it mate, thanks for the words of inspiration
I notice that northern aus is never mentioned, what goes on up there? I imagine it to be like Florida or Louisiana, full of gators, tweekers and such
There is fucking nothing there, look up Darwin on maps it is tiny, the only people that move there do so temporarily for work (mostly military + partners) and the only other noteworthy settlement is 1500km south. Full of drunk abos, a lot of spots you aren't even allowed to buy booze, methylated spirits is locked in supermarkets lol
As to OP, Brisbane is underrated to live. Cheaper and and not pozzed like Syd/ Mel with good proximity to a lot of beautiful beaches and hikes. A big enough city that we still get decent festivals, restaurants and international bands. Airport is good enough to travel to Asia, I usually use Singapore as a hub for further trips to Europe. CBD doesn't feel like walking through a horde of Chinese and Indians like Sydney does.
>Cheaper and and not pozzed like Syd/ Mel with good proximity to a lot of beautiful beaches and hikes.
What would you compare it to on the pozzed scale?
>I imagine it to be like Florida or Louisiana, full of gators
That's FNQ. The Top End is unique, you can't really compare it. It's a mix of desert and tropical, really some of the most beautiful nature on Earth.
But it's basically third world and extremely dangerous. The NT is one of the only places in Australia where the Aboriginal peoples have free reign over their land, if you go there and start acting like a cunt/disrespect them, they'll kill you.
Alice Springs tbh
A place so dry youll hug your water cooler when you get home?
Fuck me, unilodge exists in melbourne too?
As much as I hate melburnians even they do not deserve this
Graz is pretty cool
Sydney / Melbourne and probably large parts of the other main cities are just filled with morons, pajeets and self hating white liberals. Everything is disgustingly expensive. What little European identity/history we have here is shunned and mocked by locals. Both cities are rapidly becoming a mishmash of disjointed groups all stepping on each others toes a la London. The people not only hate themselves, but seem to love having the government tell them what to do every step of the way. There is no sector of society that hasn’t been ruined by the government’s heavy boot stepping on it. Mandatory helmet wearing while cycling. 97.5% of people opting to be vaccinated. Exorbitant fines for everything, and everything fun is illegal. Vaping, drinking in public, driving 3 km/h over the speed limit, etc. This country has been carefully crafted to bleed you dry of money and the will to live at every opportunity.
Melbourne has no redeeming features other than “laneways”, as though that’s something worth getting onto a 20 hour flight for.
Sydney and the surrounding towns at least have beautiful beaches, which really are the best in the world without a doubt. Spend a few days in and around Sydney and then go to north QLD or WA.
How’s da coomin’ in Australia?
legal but expensive
if your massage place has a circular LED Open sign they'll rub it duck you off for extra
The Men and Women here are some of the worst in the world. They vastly oversell themselves... awful tattoos, alcoholics, hideous drug culture, and thanks to the keeping-up-with-the-joneses attitude that being a wealthy nation comes with, everyones a stuck-up point scorer.
Redpill me on Perth. It seems like a good place to get away from it all, nice and remote.
It's a shithole. Imagine a place so bad that most of its workers would prefer to fly in and out from other states because they'd rather live elsewhere
