Migrating To Australia

Are you wanting to move to Australia but have no idea where to start?

Do you dream of a new life Down Under but are confused by all the different rules and regulations?

Do you want to start a new life in Australia but feel unsure if it’s the right decision for you and your family?


Then you’ve come to the right place.

Proudly South African In Perth aims to share valuable information about moving to Australia. Having done it myself, I know the entire spectrum of emotions you are going through before, during and after you make the move.


Who Am I?

Reeva Cutting

I’m Reeva and I started this blog in 2015 after starting a successful Facebook group for South Africans in Perth and realising there was a gap in the blogging world when it comes to migrating to Australia.

I’m originally from South Africa but lived in England for almost 10 years before moving to Australia in 2013. Having emigrated not once, but twice, I know what it’s like to start your life all over again!

My articles and interviews have appeared in The South African, SA People, Merise Magazine, Fin24Expat Focus, MoveHub and Expat Arrivals.

What Will You Get From Me?

On this blog, you’ll get practical advice about the many different aspects of migrating, such as the visa process, shipping and travel arrangements.

I also write about the emotional aspects that come with moving countries and help you to establish a new life in Australia.

Being Perth based, I also share awesome places to go, fun things to do and exciting events to check out.

While I am based in Perth, much of the information I share can be applicable no matter where you in Australia you are heading.
