    Hello. I think Darwin is the best city in Australia for international students for three things. One, because we have a friendly and welcoming community, two, because we have a warm and tropical weather, which I love, and three, because of its job opportunities, which are really, really fantastic. Will see you soon!

    It really depends what you're looking for in your Australian experience. Australia has universities located in big cities as well as in more rural areas. I think that the Bond University has the best of both worlds. We're the 6th most popular city located right near the beach have amazing restaurant scene as well as nightlife. And we're located within an hour to Brisbane, which is a major capital city in Australia.

Brisbane, of course, Brisbane is really welcoming and safe city accommodation, a key to campuses was easy to find, and it's more affordable than Sydney or Melbourne. So Brisbane is also a multicultural city and there are hundreds of restaurants with different types of food. I feel like home and also I have made lots of friends who explore all the very things that you can do in Brisbane.

    So there's no specific best city for international students because it depends on the student's preference, if they want big cities, they can go always go to Melbourne and Sydney, but if they want to study in a smaller, more quiet city, there's always other options, like Atmeh, Brisbane, Perth. Yeah.
