Moving to Australia from New Zealand?

Get all information you need to make a successful and stress-free move across the ditch.

I love helping people via Moving to Australia.

Providing the answers to questions we all ask when deciding whether to make the move from New Zealand to Australia. Even giving individual-specific advice where needed.

I have learned a lot over the last 15 years from personal experience and through interacting with visitors. This is my job, I spend hours making sure the information here is up to date.

If you would like to help me, you can use one of my referral partners.

They pay me a small amount per referral, and you get a quality service while saving hours of research time.

By nature, I love to get the best deal available. I always research any purchase or company thoroughly and evaluate all my options. So trust me, I’ve done the research for you.

I only recommend companies that I have used personally or know someone who has and that they measure up to my referral partner standards:

  • a very high level of customer service,
  • high star rating from independent reviews and
  • competitive pricing/value for money.

You will find them scattered throughout the site.

Please email me if you require further information.

    I’m looking for some advice or information on A single mother moving to the Gold Coast with an Autistic son 18 years of age.
    I have already emailed enquiring I formation to the group support there for Autism. NZ has become unbearable for trying to get the right help and the wait times for any form of respite care facilities here is just so awful. It’s time I make some decisions that can benefit my son when I’m not able to care for him one day. I’m willing to work over there and am very passionate about people on the Spectrum. Any help or Information would be very much appreciated

      Hi Lisa,
      Thank you for your comment.
      That’s really sad to hear NZ are not supporting you and your son successfully. I know how much time and energy it takes to look after someone on the spectrum.
      Did you contact Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect)?
      Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s largest provider of services for people on the spectrum –
      Hopefully they can point you in the right direction, because unfortunately New Zealand citizens in Australia are not eligible to get the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) until they become Australian citizens (4 years).
      Please email me back with any advice/information you can share with other visitors, so I can add it to my website. It’s a subject I would love to provide more information on, as I do get asked often.
      Sorry, I couldn’t be of more help.
