When relocating to Australia in 2005, Sharon bought every available book and scoured the internet, desperate for help with the huge task ahead. Unable to find relevant advice on how to plan the move, as well as offer practical information on what to expect in Australia, Sharon had no choice but to rely on past experience and a range of information sources.
This book contains all of the information Sharon wish she had at her fingertips. From guiding through the process of the move, this book also tackles the emotional aspects of the move, and the fragile first months of life in a new country.
Navigate the practical elements of a move to Australia, based on firsthand experience of a move to Sydney from London. Understand the emotional journey you will take, based on a lifetime of 18 international relocations.

A guide to settling in and adjusting to Australian life
Getting out and about to make the most of life Down Under
We’re pleased to say that even the most experienced of expats have deemed ‘So, you’re moving to Australia?’ an indispensable guide:
“I really enjoyed the book. It's a very detailed, honest description of life here and you show a very good insight into Australian culture. I also like that you address the emotional aspect of moving and talk about how you and Ian settled at different paces. I think this will be really helpful, wish i'd had it when i arrived.”

“What a well written book, with humour and good detail. Good that you admit your difficulties and how you coped, and just as important to show that Ian’s side was different. You are spot on with how you’ve addressed the work culture – we’ve experienced the same issues. Having bought guide books to help us move, I wish yours was available then.”
