Hello there, I want to switch myself from Europe to Australia, besides Sydney which city would be perfect for my small family including my wife & son (2.5 years old)?

My choice list is too small, Perth and Melbourne. Which one should I prefer and why?

Thanks in advance.

Melbourne is probably the most European city in Australia, but Perth has much much better air quality (health benefit, especially for your son).
Adelaide is also quite a nice city, smaller than other major cities like Melb or Syd, but housing prices are about the same.
Depends also on your job, as different parts of the country will offer different opportunities.
Perth is a mining city, not much going on there.
Melbourne and Sydney are of course your best options for any type of business or tech work (or rany normal jobs, like receptionist, shop assistant, etc).
Brisbane is a medium sized city, a mini version of Sydney with what it offers. Probably a lot safer and more family-oriented.
There's also Darwin, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you really like hot weather all year round. Same with Cairns.
That leaves you with Canberra, which is a very small city, less diversity than Sydney or Melbourne, but good business opportunities.

Hope this helps!

An expat talks about what it's like moving to Tokyo. It took some time adjusting to the crowds and culture, but he's happy now and looking back the culture shock wasn't as bad as he anticipated.
