Move to Australia
and thrive

Dream big, live well, explore often…THRIVE!

Welcome! I’m Karen Bleakley, Founder, Editor and Chief Dream Motivator at SmartStepstoAustralia.

I 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 digital support tools.

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.
