Luxury & lifestyle down under


By Tim Derham

I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to write for regarding the advantages of investing in luxury property in Australia. As I write this I can already hear my international peers ho-humming about the 25-hour flight it would take from New York to Melbourne or the 22-hour flight from London to Melbourne… yes that’s true, and I have no intention of trying to counteract that particular argument… However, once you finally disembark the plane, you will quickly appreciate the landscape and lifestyle opportunities awaiting you.

Australia is surprisingly affordable, and visitors receive great value for sensational products, including property, top fashion, sporting events and restaurants. How do you value a cliff-top property with uninterrupted sea views? Waking up to the smell of the sea on your superbly designed doorstep is an incredible experience.

Alternatively, head to the suburbs of Melbourne, such as Toorak or South Yarra, and purchase a luxurious home to complement your busy lifestyle. Either way, Australia has come a long way in terms of offering luxury and lifestyle products – and has the credence to compete with the biggest and best cities in the world. To whet your appetite with a showcase of luxury offerings, please visit:
