Firstly Matt, where are you from and what sort of weather/climate change are you looking for as Australia is very diverse in this area. Have you any idea where you would like to relocate to?

Hi Matt, by "moving out here" I take it you mean emigrating? Here are two sites about Moving/Emigrating to Oz, and Emigrating Downunder which you will find very useful.

You need to first have an idea of which state/city you wish to move to. What skills/jobs do you have? What type of work are you experienced in? What type of visa have you applied for? How long will you be able to support yourself until you find work? Australian Government website about emigrating. And Visas and Immigration.

If your application is successful, have you an idea of when you are likely to depart from your country? And which country are you living in - the climate here may be quite different from what you are used to. Do you have any family/friends over here? If so, will you be staying with them when you first arrive? If not I'd suggest a hostel until you get your bearings .Let us know how you get on and how we can help. Good luck with your application.
