I created a Canada vs. Australia thread 5 months ago. This sort of reminds me of that thread.

I think you are going to get a lot of responses soon! However, I imagine the posts in this thread will turn out significantly and quite different from the Canada vs. Australia thread.

Given that Australia is massive and covers an area the size of a large proportion of Europe, wouldn't it have been fairer to use Europe rather than one state from the United Kingdom. England not even being a nation state.

Even if you had use the island of Great Britain, the great being because it is is the greater (larger) island of the British Isles (a geographic term) which cover Great Britain, Ireland and over 6,000 smaller islands.

Great Britain itself isn't even a large country, but just using England is rather one sided. Europe would have been a better choice in terms of area.

I'd say that given this is a forum about potential places to live, any two places can be compared, regardless of whether they have a millennial history or not. Of course, that history influences a number of quality of life factors that can be important to some people. But it's only part of the picture when it comes to making somewhere a place that you would want to live in.

Wow! I thought Australia would be much more affordable than England, but the answers indicate otherwise. Why is that the case ? At least, population density is so much lower in Australia.

australia is booming

australia is a long way from everywhere so importing is more expensive

australia has a small population



england is not that cheap either , its far more expensive than america but then the usa is incredibly cheap considering how wealthy it is
