For anyone interested in perhaps bidding on my auction in June, here are some interesting facts about Perth, from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
I was intrigued to find that 31% of people living here were born overseas, and almost 10% of people living here were born in England.
I am now one of the 11.5% who are separated or divorced, one of the 61% employed full-time, one of the 78% living in a detached house.
That is an interesting statistic, I wonder how that compares to England, where there is so much terraced housing. The last house I owned in the UK was a two-bedroomed terraced house. I never imagined owning a house as nice as this one a few short years after arriving in Oz with very little money. But Australians refer to Australia as the lucky country, and I certainly think that Perth really is a great place to live and work.
