Bali-born Mega Yadnya found there were plenty of reasons to settle in the Northern Territory: a good job, good mates, familiar weather, friendliness and lack of traffic jams.
Mega, who has lived in Darwin for three years, is a barista at one of the Northern Territory’s most popular cafes.
“I love working there,” he says. “My bosses are great – they trust me to just get on with the job.
“I like talking to customers and many of them have become my friends.”
