Sydney is famous for the Sydney Opera HouseExpats moving to Sydney will be welcomed to a dynamic, world-class city where breathtaking natural beauty and a cosmopolitan spirit conflate to afford residents a high quality of life.

There is so much to be said for the full spectrum of lifestyle benefits available to expatriates moving to Sydney: picturesque residential suburbs, good public transport systems and equally efficient healthcare facilities. Not to mention, the high standard of education, both at school and tertiary level, makes Sydney an attractive prospect for those with children.

Besides the pleasures associated with a wonderfully mild climate and great outdoor pursuits, Sydney also boasts a thriving arts and culture scene made up of fine galleries and museums, theatre productions, and a magnificent selection of restaurants and lively café culture. Additionally, there are festivals year-round for almost every occasion.

Sydney is not just a city content to rely only on its scenic charms or hedonistic indulgences, it is also a major financial hub, employing one third of Australia’s financial sector workforce. The Australian Stock Exchange and Reserve Bank are based in Sydney, as are other big businesses in property, retail, health and information technology. Thus, it comes as little surprise that the number of expats relocating to Sydney for work purposes continues to increase. 
 
The cost of living in Sydney is high and expenses like accommodation, entertainment, transport and eating out are more expensive than other parts of Australia. However, it arguably offers a better quality of life if one considers that beaches and national parks are only a stone's throw away from the city centre.
