Relevant information on moving to Australia

The name Australia has a double etymology. One comes from the Latin Australis, from the south: from an “unknown land of the south” (terra australis incognita).

Australia is one of the 14 independent countries that make up Oceania, and is the sixth largest in the world. It is surrounded by the Indian, Antarctic and Pacific oceans, and separated from Asia by the Arafura and Timor Seas. It has a coastline of 25,760km, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world for its stunning beaches, perfect for surfing and other water sports.

The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef, is located off the northeast coast and stretches for more than 2,000 kilometres. Ranging in width from 100 to 300 km, it is made up of a large number of separate islands.

Prices of removals to Australia

The price of a move to Australia will depend, to a large extent, on the costs of collection and delivery in the city of origin and destination.

The price will be higher if you have to deliver your belongings to a fourth floor flat without a lift than if you have to deliver them to a house at street level. It will also be more expensive for a removal that requires a street to be blocked off for the whole morning, with permits to be requested from the local council, than another where traffic is not interrupted.

In any case, the approximate prices for a 40 m3 container are:

Moving from Madrid to Sydney: from 2.250 €.
Removal from Valencia to Sydney: from 2.170 €.
Moving from Barcelona to Sydney: from 2.450 €.

Climate of Australia

Climate of Australia

Much of Australia is desert or semi-arid. It is the driest and flattest inhabited country and has the least fertile soils. Only in the southeast and southwest is there a temperate climate. The northern part of the country, with a tropical climate, has vegetation consisting mainly of jungles, forests, grasslands, mangroves and deserts.

Australian cuisine

Australian cuisine

There are a small number of desserts and sweet dishes that are very popular and popular in Australia:

  • Pavlova: This is the best known. It is a refreshing cake made with cream, meringue and fresh fruit (kiwi, peach, etc.).
  • Anzac biscuits.
  • Lamingtons.
  • Vanilla slice.

Australia’s cuisine is characterised by a range of foods that reflect its multicultural historical past: the indigenous cuisine of the Aboriginal Australians, called bush tucker or bushfood, the British and Irish cuisine of the early European settlers, and the contributions of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine brought by immigrants arriving after World War I. The predominance of Australian cuisine is due to the predominance of bush tucker and bushfood.

Due to the predominance of British cuisine, there is an abundance of pies, roast cuts of meat, grilled steaks, chicken… as well as other forms of meat usually accompanied by vegetables (the combination is known on the continent as meat and three veg).

The quintessential Australian dish is meatloaf. There are also other dishes that are not as popular as meatloaf, but are a popular Australian delicacy. Cabanossi is a type of sausage similar to salami.

Other common dishes in the Australian diet are those cooked with meat from exotic animals such as crocodile, kangaroo or buffalo. Also important are crustaceans known as mud crabs and yabbies.
