A possie in Aussie

Lucky to live here

In Futurebrand’s Country Brand Index (CBI) 2008, Australia ranked number one in the world for the place where most people would choose to live,  outside of their home country.

The factors that made Australia number one were:

Friendly people

Ideal weather

Natural beauty

Stable government

New Zealand was the second choice, Canada third, Switzerland forth and Scotland fifth



  1. I was in a bar in London in 2007 when I met a Brit who asked me where I was from. I said Australia. He said, ‘what the fuck are you ding here? we all wanna fuck off and go and live there!.. I’m in the process of packing up my family and going to live in either Spain or Sydney’

    When he found out that I was only there on a workholiday visa he calmed down, and said that it’s good to get experience over there and then fly off home to Australia, the most livable place on Earth. I agree.

    • Livable? Just don’t move to Adelaide right now – we are in a heatwave of EVERY day over 40 degrees – has lasted 4 days now, and will last at least seven more days!
      Thanks for your comment!
