The wife and I have had a pipe dream of living Melbourne Australia for 6 or 7 years now. About 4 years ago we went to the point of looking into visas but the epic lump sum needed to move put us off. After chatting to friends who live out there, they've started emailing links to jobs over there and its got the juices flowing again! Especially when the starting salary for a front end developer is $70-85k (£38-47k). Anyone else looked at moving down under? What stopped you doing it?
