About This Quiz

Australia is a diverse country that has something for everyone. From the beach to the big smoke, Australians are spoiled when it comes to choosing where to live. It merely depends on what environment you'd thrive in and what you prefer. Your lifestyle, work and attitude will all come into play when figuring out where you should live. Perhaps you're a die-hard city slicker, a nature-lover, or a total homebody. Or maybe your line of work demands that you live in a specific type of city or town. This quiz will help you demystify the process of choosing which state suits you best. 

Whether you're looking to move from one place in Australia to another, or you're trying to work out if you're truly meant to stay where you're currently living, this quiz will be your guiding compass. Ensure that your family life, work life, hobbies and more are all taken care of by determining which Aussie state best suits you. 

Let's give a shout out to Australia's sparsely populated territories, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory, which we won't be focusing on for the time being. 

So, are you ready to figure out which Australian state will best suit you? Take this quiz and start packing your bags!
