Move to Australia
and thrive

Banner: Enjoy your relocation adventure. Create a life you love. Explore the Move to Australia Toolkit.

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

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 (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.
