From the past, we can see the opportunity today’s exchange rate gives us happens every 15 years. The last time the AU$ fall down against the US$ like today was between 1998 and 2001 when it fell to its lowest ever point of 0.48 in April of 2001 - the only other time it fell as low was in 1986.
Economists at major banks across Australia are predicting that the exchange rate could drop to 0.6 as early as 2017-18 and the possibility that it could even reach levels seen before in 2001.This has meant there has never been a better time in a generation to move your assets into Australia to get the best value for your investment. Planning now can mean you are prepared to strike when the time is best as prices could fall further still.
"When you combine great value for money with the excellent growth forecasts over the coming years, Australia is becoming one of the few developed countries in the world that can sell itself as both great value and have great prospects for the future."

Australia has wildlife parks and zoos in each of the capital cities plus many World Heritage Listed sites throughout the country, so there is always an opportunity to spot and enjoy Australia’s wildlife wherever you are. It is also home to one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World, the Great Barrier Reef, which alone attracts thousands of eco and adventure tourists every year to explore the richness and diversity of the wildlife in the depths of Australia's oceans.
There are around 828 bird species found in Australia and approximately half of them are unique to the country. Perhaps the most famous of Australian birds are the flightless emu which stands at a shocking two meters tall and the Kookaburra, made infamous by Marion Smith’s children’s song written in 1932. Known for its hysterical and almost human-like laugh and the fact that it is fairly common in both the countryside and city suburbs means the kookaburra is easily spotted. There are also many waterbirds found in Australia including fairy penguins, cassowaries, black swans and lyrebirds. Along with the many waterbirds, there are several species found on and around the coasts of Australia.
