Sukran

Sukran Maden knows that the Northern Territory has much going for it. But it’s the lifestyle that delights Sukran. “I remember when I first arrived in Darwin,” she says. “I was cycling to work and it was so lovely that I found myself smiling. No traffic, no congestion. Just five minutes from my home to the office.” The graphic designer, who has a swag of in-demand skills, including web design, soon found that Darwin’s unbeatable lifestyle is complemented by tremendous professional opportunities. Her experience of getting a good, well-paid job quickly is typical of skilled migrants – the Territory’s growing and diversifying economy is creating exciting opportunities for skilled workers. “Coming to Australia was the best decision of my life.”

Brazilian Leticia Bassler has never regretted for one minute her decision to leave her homeland and settle in the Northern Territory. Leticia’s 19-year-old daughter Amanda was 16 when she arrived in the Territory and went to Darwin High School. She made good friends and appreciates that her life in Darwin is “better and safer” than in Brazil. Amanda got good grades in Year 12 and is now studying accounting at Charles Darwin University – and loves it. Mother and daughter enjoy Darwin. “We really like living here. It’s a small city and a safe place. It’s got beautiful beaches, beautiful sunsets and a very nice waterfront.

Bangladesh-born hospitality professional Sakib Mohammad loves living in the Territory. He particularly appreciates its job opportunities, multiculturalism, natural beauty, friendliness and good lifestyle. “Almost anyone I meet comes from abroad or other parts of Australia, which makes me feel like I am one of them,” he says. Life in Australia was “completely different” at first – he started as a casual worker in a restaurant and then as a hotel housekeeper. But opportunities opened up when he made the sensible decision to move to the Territory in 2018. Sakib says good job opportunities are “abundant” in the Territory. He is getting into the rhythm of Territory life – he played A grade cricket for the Alice Springs Tigers in the 2018-19 season. “I want to stay in Australia permanently and I want to stay in the Northern Territory – because these days I feel like I am a Territorian.”

Eric Lacroix came to Australia on a working holiday visa and had every intention of returning to France. But he immediately fell for the Northern Territory’s lifestyle. He has been in the Territory since 2018 and now wants to settle permanently. Eric found that Darwin offered much more than other cities, particularly job opportunities, outdoor adventure, natural beauty and what he calls “an untouched land”. He enjoys the “vibe” of the city – “the lifestyle and the laid-back way” – and loves the Aboriginal culture and history.
