Moving to Perth
The appeal of moving to Perth for Brits has been consistent for the last 50 years, with thousands of families moving annually from the UK. The six most popular cities are Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Darwin.
The perceived Australian way of life, lying back on the beach preparing the BBQ, may be a little bit of cliché, but it isn’t far from the truth. Perth receives an average 340 sunny days per year, with temperatures rarely falling below 16 Celsius in the winter and hitting highs of the late thirties in the summer months – December to February.
Perth has been a favourite destination for British families with its consistent hot, dry sunny days, beautiful beaches and its historic ties with the UK.
Property prices in Perth were very favourable compared to the UK but have seen a significant increase in the last 1o years as the mining industry has boomed and seen an explosion of people migrating to the city.
There are currently 1,750 houses for sale in Perth with prices ranging from as little as AS$209,000 for a one bedroom apartment up to a staggering $12,000,000 Australian dollars for a stunning 4 bedroom apartment in Esplanade, South Perth

Schools if moving to Perth
The Western Australian education system traditionally consists of primary schools, which accommodate students from kindergarten to Year 7 (ages 5–12), and high schools, which accommodate students from Years 8 to 12 (ages 13–17). A number of variations exist, however—the Catholic school system and some newer public schools move students from primary to high school at the end of Year 6, while in country areas, District High Schools serve as both a primary and a junior high school, with students generally commuting to or boarding at larger towns to finish the last two years of their education.
There are incredible selections of fine schools available and a selection can be found by visiting, http://www.ais.wa.edu.au/search-school/ or http://www.australianschoolsdirectory.com.au/perth-schools.php
