Many people live in Australia temporarily as expats but are not recognised as such. My Argentinian/Italian friends initially went because he was employed academically by a University in Melbourne. She got a contract job at large transport company. Their son attended creche with our youngest, but they have now lived in Melbourne for 6 years, having lived in Switzerland prior.
Australia is a great country but as a family expat it can be challenging to make friends if you don’t have young children at school. There are so many things to do and lots of ways to meet new families.
