Great things about your move to Australia.

Well if you are immigrating to Australia here are some really good things to know.

Australians are the Richest  people in the world.

According to the estimated median wealth of $219,505, the Credit Suisse 2013 Global Wealth Report which was recently released, Australians (and hence you) are the richest people in the world.

Median wealth means that half of the people in a country have at least that amount of money, while the remaining half have less than that amount.

Based on average wealth, then Australians are  the second richest people in the world with only an average wealth of $402,578 - tsk. The richest are Swiss whose average wealth is $513,000. 
Pretty good huh!?
The count of Australian millionaires went up by 38,000 people to 1.123 million.
Australia's Sydney is the most Reliable city in the world
100 global cities were assessed by the Reputation Institute. Happily Sydney, Australia has topped the list.  Forbes Magazine recently published that the City of Sydney is the most reliable city in the world.
Behind Sydney was Canada's Toronto, Sweden's Stockholm, Austria's Vienna and Italy's Venice. On the worst side of the list are Egypt's Cairo, Kenya's Nairobi, Pakistan's Karachi, Iran's Tehran and Iraq's Baghdad. Sorry chaps!
The institute ranked the cities by performing an online survey of over 22,000 people from the G8 countries. The poll was held in January and February of 2013. People were answered questions only about cities they knew.
Pretty cool news if you are migrating to Australia wouldn't you say?

Sydney sky scrapers
You will be happy to know Sydney does not even feature in the top 100 cities in the world that have the most skyscrapers. I think that is pretty awesome. Who needs more concrete right?

Australian nature
Did you know that most of Australia's exotic flora and fauna cannot be found anywhere else in the world. You really are migrating to a unique place
Beer drinking in Australia

Surprisingly against all sterotypical thoughts of Ozzies, Australia is no longer a champion beer-drinking nation - its quaffing plunged to a 65 year low in 2010-2011 with only 4.23 litres consumed per person per year. 
I think this is a GOOD thing. Go Australia!

Gambling in Australia

Perhaps they cant afford beer as Australia has had the dodgy distinction of having the highest rate of gambling in the world with 80 percent of Australian adults gambling in some form or another -  20 percent of the worlds pokie machines  are found in Australia.
Australian Cattle

Australia has the worlds largest cattle station in Anna Creek Station in South Australia. Comprising over 34,000 square kilometres of land it is the world's largest cattle station. 

It is so big it is even  larger than Belgium!

Australians respect their Woman

In 1902, Australia was only the second country in the world to give women the right to vote.
Go Australia

Thanks for reading folks - have a safe one!
