Got an Answer?

Thanks everyone for saving me getting shot xx
Crime can be an issue in Dallas.
…which, in a city of this size, is a bit like saying that there are some tall buildings in New York. Of course, there is crime in any major urban area.
NeighborhoodScout.com’s data shows that 7.67 Dallas city residents per 1,000 are the victims of violent crime and 34.79 residents per 1,000 are property crime victims.
Both of these numbers are well above the average for Texas, which are 4.34 and 27.6, respectively.
Lived there for a little over a year. Life is tough! You have no healthcare and getting a job is very hard. Wages are super low. It is not easy at all. Lifestyle isn't great either. We came back to QLD
Honestly from all the answers I’m not sure why you’d want to 🤨 just being honest. Why don’t you consider moving somewhere a bit different in Australia, like Darwin or Tasmania (if you do t come from those places now) or change of city for example... or move to NZ!!
I can’t answer what it is like to move there but I can tell you about living there. I am American but have lived here for 8 years.
Why do you want to move there? Have you got a job lined up? Be aware that wages are not as high there as here. Also do you have a health problems? There is no national healthcare and you will be required to purchase private healthcare which is quite expensive and you can be denied coverage for any pre-existing conditions. Life is quite different there I find than here.
I know I am sounding all doom and gloom but those are things you have to be aware of. I am proud of where I came from and do not hide the fact that I am American but I can see there are some true flaws. But there is a lot to experience. It is a beautiful country and there is a lot to see and do from the big cities to the high plains to the mountains, desert and coasts. The people can be kind and gracious. Houses, cars and shopping centres are bigger and you are spoiled for places to eat. It just depends on what you are looking for and what you want out of your experience living there. Do a lot of research. See if you can find an Australian expat group online and pick their brains.
