Hi, I'm Lauren.

And I've helped thousands of people from all over the world move to Australia.

I started blogging about my move to Sydney back in 2009, but soon realized that there was a lack of good, solid information online, specific to the actual details of moving to Australia and life as an American expat living in Australia. I decided to revamp my old blog and try to fill that information gap as Sydney Moving Guide. You can read more about me here, but Sydney Moving Guide isn't really about me. IT'S ABOUT YOU. So, I have one question for you. What do you need help with?

How Can I Help You With Your Move to Australia?

There are a lot of unknowns when moving to Australia. Sure, you've moved before, even dozens of times, but this is different. Even if you've been to Sydney on vacation and feel like you know exactly where you're going to move to, there will be surprises. I can guarantee it.

Some surprises will be small, and you'll be able to shrug them off easily, but others will be big, hairy - sometimes expensive - surprises that will stop you in your tracks, thinking "WTF, where the heck did that come from? Did I miss the fine print?".

The only way to turn those big, hairy surprises into smaller ones, or maybe even navigate around them entirely, is to clear up as many of the unknowns surrounding your move as possible.

That's the whole reason why I started Sydney Moving Guide. To give you all the resources and information you need to DIY your move to Australia with no big, hairy surprises along the way.

So let's get started. Below are my top posts by category. If you haven't gotten my moving checklist yet, then go back and get that first. The checklist is a good place to start and you can download it with no strings attached. Even better.
