Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia can certainly seem a long way from the rest of the world. Our closest neighbor of New Zealand is a 4 hour flight away, while it takes over 6 hours to fly across Australia itself.
The Australian Government has recognized that a lifestyle change to the land Down Under is a big step and a big commitment for many families travelling from the other side of the world. To help the transition into Australia culture, the government has a wide variety of information and booklets available online for potential immigrants to access to assist with their choice.
The amount of resources available to residents, students, families, workers who have moved to Australia is a tribute to the government in recognizing how important immigration is to the country. Resources such as 510 hours of free English lessons to eligible adult migrants and humanitarian entrants, Multicultural language booklets about life in Australia, information on visas and much more are all available through the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
