Move to Australia
& thrive

Dream big, live well, explore often…THRIVE!

Welcome! I’m Karen Bleakley, Founder & Editor of SmartStepstoAustralia.

Smart Steps to Australia is a magazine-style blog and online community for families who want to move to Australia and thrive! I’m here to provide support and inspiration for your move and beyond to help you get the most out of your new life. 

Moving from the UK to Australia with my husband and kids transformed our lives in so many positive ways. Following your dreams is challenging, rewarding and addictive!

I hope reading this blog inspires you to follow your own Australian dreams.
