Destination Perth

Sitting on the coast of the Indian Ocean is Western Australia, (WA) the largest state of Australia. The capital of WA is Perth, a beautiful modern city with a population of over 2 million residents. If you’re thinking about a move to Australia, then Perth is an excellent option. For starters it’s consistently rated amongst the Top 10 most liveable cities in the world. With nearly 13,000 kms of coastline on one side and the Australian outback on the other, there’s ample space and plenty to do for everyone. It offers a relaxed vibe, stunning beaches, every water sport imaginable, road trip adventures, award winning wine regions, and a stunning Mediterranean climate.

Move to Perth

One of the biggest attractions for young kiwis looking to relocate to Perth is the high wages on offer in the mining sector. That’s why so many workers base themselves in Perth and become fly in and fly out (FIFO) employees. They fly into remote locations and work for either 7 or 14 day stretches before flying home to take a break and then do it all over again. For workers with no mining experience, jobs are readily available. These include everything from cleaners and kitchen staff to driving heavy machinery. There are over 60,000 FIFO workers in Australia, many of them young New Zealanders living in Perth.

The biggest issue facing anyone considering a move to Perth is that most of Australia’s big population centres are on the other side of this vast continent. Many are concerned they will feel disconnected and isolated from mainstream society. In reality this can’t be further from the truth. That’s because Perth’s isolation has resulted in every amenity you could ever wish for being readily available. The city represents the very best Australian has to offer, from the plethora of major international sports and cultural events it attracts to its dining out lifestyle there’s a sense of community that’s the envy of other major cities.

Here’s some information about living in Perth you might find useful;

  • Perth is the sunniest capital city in Australia. In summer, the weather is extremely hot and dry. Temperatures average 17.5 – 30°C (63.5 – 86°F). Luckily there’s an afternoon sea breeze called the ‘Freemantle doctor’ to provide relief form the sweltering heat. In contrast the winter months from June through August bring cooler and wetter days, with temperatures averaging from 8 – 19°C (46.4 – 66.2°F).
  • Perth has a diversified and vibrant labour market. The biggest employer in the region is Wesfarmers, one of Australia’s leading companies with over 25,000 staff. Woolworths, Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, and Ramsay Health follow them. There are also plenty of teaching and academic opportunities in the education sector, led by Curtin University and the University of Western Australia.
  • Getting around Perth is relatively easy, thanks to a well-developed public transportation system. This includes a network of trains, buses and ferries operating around the city and to rural locations. A feature is the zero-fee bus and train trips provided around the central city. We also recommend you have your own car and take advantage of the well-established roading network for those weekend adventures. Perth is connected to the rest of Australia and the world, by road, rail and air. Perth airport is the 4th busiest in Australia.
  • When you move your household goods to Perth by sea, it’s going to take a little longer than to the western seaboard of Australia. Sea freight is handled through the port of Freemantle, one of Australia’s biggest ports located at the mouth of the Swan River, around 20kms from the city centre.
  • They say that ‘life’s a beach in Perth’. However, when living in Perth if you get sick of the beaches, and nature walks there’s some of Australia’s most incredible road trips and outback adventures to discover and experience. If that’s not to your taste you can jump on a plane (at low cost) and in less than 4 hours be in Bali, one of the world’s most popular tropical holiday destinations.

Shipping Options to Perth

Most Ausmove customers moving to Perth from NZ use sea freight to send their household goods and personal effects to Perth. You should be aware that good planning is important as sea shipments do take longer than to other major Australian cities. There are various options depending on budget, individual needs, and circumstances.

These options include;

  • Sending your belongings in a shared or groupage container. This is highly recommended if you are on a tight budget or have a smaller shipment. That’s because you only pay your share of the shipping costs. Although this is the slowest shipping option, that’s not always the case with Ausmove. That’s because we have a high frequency of groupage containers going into the port of Freemantle.
  • Full Container Load (FCL) or sole use container. This is the recommended option if you’re shipping a whole house load or wish to send a vehicle to Perth. There are both 20 foot and 40-foot container options. It’s often possible for us to pack and load at residence and take your container straight to the port, without excessive handling. While this option is slightly more expensive, it is generally quicker and can save you money on transit accommodation costs.
  • Airfreight is also a popular method of shipping into Perth. This is extremely quick and often used to send a smaller shipment in advance of sea freight. Our offices are perfectly positioned right beside Auckland airport, which speeds up the process even further. It’s particularly popular for customers who have young children or need quick access to their tools of trade, sporting, or office equipment. Many customers use airfreight to reduce the amount of time and cost of a prolonged stay in hotel style transit accommodation.


The security of your personal information is very important in today’s digital world. You don’t want your financial information, passport copies, destination address etc falling into the wrong hands. You can be assured that Ausmove collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information in strict compliance with the New Zealand Privacy Act and high level EU (GDPR) standards.
