Is Australia the Happiest Place on Earth?

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”
― Tom Bodett

According to the Organization for Economic Corporation and Development (OECD) – Australia is the happiest place out of the 36 industrialized nations for the third year in a row. In addition, the 2019 World Happiness Report ranked Australia as the 11th happiest country in the whole world.
So what makes Australia such a great place to live in?

They love people

Australia has a rich multi-cultural society that is spread out all over the country. More than 10 million people living in Australia were born overseas, making up 30% of the entire Australian population. In fact, the visa approval process for new immigrants takes just 18 months on average, which is much faster compared to other countries around the world.

They value their citizens

Australia ensures that their citizens have access to many employment opportunities, a good income, comfortable housing, high-end education, safety, and quality health-care (fun fact: following the Coronavirus pandemic, Australian citizens received such high unemployment benefits that many of them decided not to go back to work).

They encourage academic achievements

One of Australia’s trademarks (recognized worldwide) is the high level of education. This is actually credited to the number of foreigners who represent more than 10% of the total number of students enrolled in Australian universities.

Australia is a safe place

The Australian people are known to have a very relaxed and easy-going approach to life. One of the main reasons for that is the low levels of crime, the efficient police forces, and their general pride in being part of a peaceful society.

There is much more that can be said about life in Australia: the country’s socio-political approach, the creation of a work-life balance for its citizens, the warm climate, low population density, and more. In addition to all of those facts, Australia also provides over 60 different visa programs to immigrants interested in making a new life for themselves in the Land Down Under.

Ron Ford immigrated with his family to Australia in 2005 to work as a social worker. Following their difficult immigration process, he slowly turned to blogging and creating content about immigration: "…As a family of 5, we struggled to make ends meet. I was working around the clock and Clarissa was working in housekeeping any time she could spare. The move to Australia completely changed our lives, but it cost us a lot of money, time, and tears. Ever since I've wanted to help others on their journeys the way I wished someone had helped us".
