"My Melbourne friend invited me to his parents’ home for dinner on my first Wednesday here and six years later I’m still there for dinner every Wednesday."
"I absolutely love my nursing job. I came as an international student, it was a great opportunity for me. I loved meeting the many students of all different backgrounds and now I love working with my new Southern Health family."
"I like challenges so decided to find a place my wife would enjoy, that could benefit my career and give my son more certainty for his future too."
"It was so beautiful. It just felt like home. The attitude to life is different here - it's just as professional as the UK but it's more relaxed in the way people go about things. There's less pretense."
"It's welcoming, peaceful and multicultural with so much to offer in the way of work and business opportunities."
"We’ve got everything you’d ever want here. It’s safe for the kids, there’s good education and jobs and lots to do together as a family."
"Rachel had spent six years in Africa including two years teaching in Tanzania. In the long-term we couldn't see ourselves having a family or the lifestyle we wanted in the UK because we are both very outdoor people."

"Everybody says Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world and we wanted to see it for ourselves. One of the main reasons we chose Melbourne was for our daughter because we felt the education system was very attractive with many good universities."
