5 Benefits of working in Australia as a Digital Nomad

Despite being geographically far away from every other main global commercial precinct on the earth, Australia is a thriving capitalist nation that has a very strong dollar and a hard working culture. Digital Nomads seeking a location independent lifestyle in Australia often find it difficult to sustain themselves financially due to the high cost of living.

Unless they have some really good paying online work to support themselves and their digital nomad salary, they more often than not find themselves needing to find work in Australia. However, it’s not all doom and gloom.

There are many appeals and advantages of working in Australia, and today we will look at five good reasons to do so.

1. The Beaches

Famous for long, beautiful, white sand beaches with a mix of rough and placid waters, Australia is home to some of the best beaches in the world. Given the relatively small population compared to the surface space of Australia, it’s not uncommon to find a beach all to yourself!

Many Digital Nomads who are surfing enthusiasts often have Australia as their number one destination. Although those who are not experienced surfers should tread carefully, as some of the waters can look enticing, but be deceivingly rough.

But if relaxing on a beach on a hot summer day in between working remotely from your laptop is appealing to you, then Australia certainly has you covered. There are some fantastic camping spots by the beaches and it’s certainly possible to work by the beach as a digital nomad in Australia.

2. Strong Dollar

As a side effect of the downsides of high cost of living, working in Australia means you will also be earning an income in a strong currency.

With very beneficial employee worklaws and minimal wage laws, working in Australia means you will have one of the most protected employee systems in the world.The working conditions are first rate, and in hospitality industries tips are quite good, though notobligatory like in the United States.

If you choose to balance your digital nomad work against some on site local work in Australia, you will definitely help relieve some of the financial pressures, as you will be earning a strong Australian dollar.

3. Relaxed Culture

You may be familiar with the Australian phrase, “No worries mate”. It’s pretty self explanatory, but also very accurate. Australians are very relaxed when it comes to socialising and general approach to life.

Sure, in the fast pace environments of the bustling city and metropolises it can be just as hectic a rat race as any world city. But venturing out into the local towns and beachside communities can provide a much different, slower paced, relaxed environment.

Australians are renowned for their love of beer, and in Summer particularly, this is taken to a whole new level. To compliment this, they are friendly and helpful to travellers, and are happy to hire the right person for the job, not just a local.

4. Plenty to see and do

The monotonous working life in many typical cities and towns can lead to boredom fast. In Australia, there is so much to see and do to keep you inspired.The famous attractions such as Uluru and The Great Barrier Reef can be explored on your week off from work, or over a long weekend.

However because of the large geographic size of the country, it can sometimes take a long time to travel these distances. You may be better off planning mini trips seeing many things at a time, rather than just aiming to do the one thing.

Aside from the glorious natural beauty on offer, many culture activities are also on offer, such as AFL Football, mainly prominent at the MCG in Melbourne and Adelaide.

If food and wine is your go, then you will not be disappointed, as Australia has some of the finest and most diverse ranges of cuisines on the planet.

5. Easy to find work

Even though big global economic downturns have had a major impact on most western economies, Australia has scraped through and rebounded fairly strongly.

There are loads of jobs on offer for those willing, so not being able to find some form of work is definitely not an issue. If you are picky about the sort of job you want, you may find it a little harder.

Generally, most digital nomads have no problem finding a job if they need one to help support their experience.
