Home to some of the world's most iconic landmarks, Sydney is a dynamic, world-class city where breathtaking natural beauty and a cosmopolitan spirit meet.

There is much to be said for the full spectrum of lifestyle benefits available to expats moving to Sydney. Expats in this Australian city will have their choice of picturesque residential suburbs, good public transport systems and equally efficient healthcare facilities. Not to mention the high standard of education which 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. Additionally, there are festivals year round for almost every occasion.

However, Sydney is not a city content to rely only on its scenic charms or hedonistic indulgences. The city is also a major financial hub and economic power, so it comes as little surprise that the number of expats relocating to Sydney for work purposes is on the rise.

The cost of living in Sydney is high and costs for accommodation, entertainment, transport and eating out are far more expensive than many other parts of Australia. But it arguably offers a better quality of life if one considers the number of beaches, national parks and the array of things to see and do just a stone's throw away from the city centre.
