    To be honest it will vary from person to person.

     

    A lot suffer homesickness or miss something from the UK.

     

    At first it can just be overwhelming and you don't know where anything is etc.............

     

     

    The cost of living has risen over here in the 7 years we've been here.No longer is there a cheap Australian Dream.

    But still affordable if you are wise with money.

     

    It's just such a complete lifestyle change that it can have many cons or few cons.

     

    Few for us fortunately.:D

    No radiators, still have to use the tumble drier, prehistoric broadband(they think its super fast!), lack of being able to connect to broadband in some houses, I wont say areas as this varies from house to house! Not many good internet sites for price comparing. Petrol goes up on tuesday evening or wednesday then slowly drops down again!! Why?

     

    Is that enough for starters???;).

     

    You only asked for cons I could give the same if not more pros.
