Move to Australia
and thrive

I would love to help you move to Australia with less stress so you can enjoy the journey as you create a life you love! Check out the ways I can help and support you here. 

Welcome! I’m Karen Bleakley, Founder, Editor and Chief Dream Motivator at SmartStepstoAustralia and creator of the Move to Australia Toolkit.

I’m here to help you follow your dream of moving to Australia by simplifying the process, removing the overwhelm and providing a supportive community so you can enjoy the journey and create a life you love. I do this through a blog, a membership community and a range of (free and paid) digital support tools you can find over on the Move to Australia Toolkit site.

Moving from the UK to Australia with my husband and kids transformed our lives in so many positive ways – it gave us the freedom to live life on our terms. Moving abroad takes you beyond your comfort zone, where anything is possible. 

I can’t wait to support you on your Australian adventure.


We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. I live on the land of the Kabi Kabi people and thank them for the privilege of being able to live in such an incredible part of the world.
