About Me

Are you looking for information about migrating to Australia? Are you wanting to move to Perth or WA? Then you have come to the right place!

Proudly South African In Perth aims to share valuable information about migrating to Australia as well as what life here is really like. As I am based in Perth, I share some of the awesome events and things to do in and around Perth and WA.

I’m Reeva and I lived in South Africa until I finished my degree at UCT. I migrated to England in 2003 and after 8 years just could not take the cold anymore! I took a look at where I could live that was warm – and settled on Perth, Australia!

After a long two year migration journey, I arrived with my family in Perth in 2013 and have not looked back since. I am married to an amazing and supportive Englishman (who is really an honorary South African!) and we have a gorgeous son who keeps us super busy.

I set up a closed Facebook group called Proudly South African in Perth & WA in December 2013 after getting increasingly frustrated with all the drama on the existing Facebook groups for South Africans in Australia. It grew quickly and attracted many members who clearly felt the same way as I did. Early on in 2015 we reached 3000 members and so I decided to take the next step and set up this blog where I could share my knowledge and experiences with not just members of the group, but anyone interested in moving to or living in Western Australia. As of June 2016, we’re almost at 5000 members!

I would love to hear from you with any suggestions of what you would like to see on the blog or if you would like to work with me, just get in touch and let me know. I love attending and promoting events that are relevant to my readers so would love to hear from you.
