Okay, so you’re thinking about moving to Australia. It might be because there’s better working conditions, more opportunities or just because you love the lifestyle. Before you pack up to head across the ditch you need to know:

  • How to apply for a TFN & bank account
  • Where you’ll live and what you can afford
  • What jobs are available
  • How Australia’s Medicare process works
  • And much more…

That’s NZRelo – we know the problems, challenges and questions New Zealanders relocating to Australia face; we also know the answers. Think of us as the new kind of social hub.

A website that brings together all the information a Kiwi wants to know (and needs to know!) about moving to Australia. That way when you – or someone you know – does make the move, they’ll be prepared, informed, employed and organised.


In short, because – despite all the benefits & perks – moving to Australia from New Zealand is just too difficult for most people. The policies and red tape alone are enough to make anyone lose their mind.

Currently, nearly 650,000 Kiwis call Australia home. By the end of this year, almost 28,000 more will have made the journey, and another 15,000 will return home. This cycle repeats itself every year.

There is an untapped market out there trying to wrap their head around what they need to do before they can settle in Australia.

538 – Kiwis applying for their first job in Australia every week.

78 – Kiwis learning how to navigate the rental property market every day.

3 – Kiwis applying for a TFN, bank account and 100 points of ID matrix hour.

– Kiwi stepping off the plane without a clue what Medicare is or how to get it every 15 minutes.


NZRelo is for everyone. We’re for the growing number of Kiwis already living in Australia – and for those planning on moving over. That’s your brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, uncles, aunties, mates, and mates of mates.

It’s become part of the Kiwi lifestyle to spend a few years in Aus, dipping our hands in the cookie jar, seeing if the grass really is greener on the other side. But it’s not as easy as packing a bag and jumping on a plane.

The average NZRelo user is forced to use a system that’s against them from the outset. The Australian Government offers little assistance, and their own government actively discourages leaving New Zealand – squashing any assistance channels that may be available. They’re unaware of the systems in place to get settled and are often short on time & finances. But most of all, they’re determined to do it all themselves.


NZRelo isn’t just a useful resource for those thinking about jumping the Tasman – we also have plenty of content, news & entertainment for Kiwis who are already settled in Australia and even those returning home.

NZRelo’s wealth of resources mean those planning to move don’t have to spend hours scouring the internet for checklists, procedures, documentation and shipping details. Everything you need to arrange for a seamless journey can be found on one simple to navigate site.

Coming Home?

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. We get that, that’s why we’re here to help make your return journey as easy as possible should you decide to head home. We can help you sell your unwanted goods through our classifieds section, ship the important stuff home and tie up any loose ends before you leave.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
