Holidays in Australia will help Brits discover if they would consider living in the country.

With new visa changes expected to increase interest among Brits for property down under, now’s a great time to book cheap flights to Australia and discover what the country has to offer.

Changes to Australia’s visa system coupled with attractive housing prices are expected to boost demand for property, particularly in the resource states of Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory, which are showing the best signs of economic recovery after a period of national decline.

If you’re considering moving to Australia, an antipodean holiday is the best way to get a taste for what it’s really like and maybe even whet your appetite for a possible relocation.

According to’s Marc Da Silva, the strength of the pound and the lack of a language barrier will further boost interest – these factors are not only beneficial to property buyers, but also to holidaymakers.

On the topic of the visa changes, he said: “The Australian government has announced that they are going to reduce the current pass mark for people looking to get a visa and migrate down under.

“That could potentially fuel demand for Brits, amongst other internationals, to move to Australia. They are opening the doors.”
