    Emigrating on your own

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and have been reading threads with great interests. I'm hoping to come over to OZ late this year/early next year from the UK. Currently in the midst of saving, I have good qualifications (Masters degree and professional quals in the IT industry) plus a good few years experience since graduation. So I'm relatively hopeful of securing a job once I get over there. The average salary for the job I want to do vary depending on location and serior positions etc, but I'll probably be aiming for the jobs around the 65k-85k mark. The main question is moving over on my own (completely, don't know anyone over there) Would this wage be livable for someone in mid/late-twenties in the Brisbane area, however the locations of Sydney and Melbourne are also of interest basically following the work. As I would need rent, rates, food, car, social life to meet people etc. The move is pretty much to try and kick my career to the next level, whilst simultaneously seeing some of the world and you never know I might even meet "the one" over there and never return back. Also has anyone else made the move entirely on their own? The prospect is quite daunting, I'm hoping the risk is worth the reward. I'm not expecting it to be a utopia by any stretch of the imagination and solving all of lifes problems but better weather, seemingly better job prospects by all accounts (from the North of England) and an experience which I feel has to be tried so as to not regret anything later in life. If it doesn't work out I can always return to the UK without the "What if" forever burning away at me.
