Helping UK families
navigate their way
to a dream life
in Australia.

Anything in life worth doing is tough…
otherwise everyone would be doing it.

Thinking about moving your family from the UK to Australia? Packing up and moving to the other side of the world is daunting, terrifying and exciting. As an experienced project manager, I found the best way to tackle it was by breaking it down into chunks and tackling it one step at a time.

Life’s full of opportunities and the only
thing limiting them is you!

I set up Smart Steps to Australia to help families who are interested in moving to Australia. Whether you’re at the difficult decision making phase or you’re already headlong into the Australian visa process, this site will walk you through everything you need to know about emigrating to keep your stress levels to a minimum.

“We contacted Karen for advice about a move from the UK to Australia, particularly regarding the logistics of making the move with children! She provided excellent guidance and support and as someone who has made the move already was able to draw on her experiences to help us have a smoother transition for us.”
