About Us

Thanks for stopping by!

We are an Australian family who left our home town of Sydney on the 5th January 2016 to live in Bali for what was originally going to be one year.

As many family and friends predicted, we stayed for a second year as we loved the Bali lifestyle and all it had to offer.

Our two children were only 6 and 8 when we arrived in Bali with our four suitcases. They attended the Australian Independent School (AIS) which follows the Melbourne Curriculum.

Living on the island for two years was life changing and we decided we didn’t want to move back to Sydney.

It was by luck that my best friend moved her family from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland whilst we were away which triggered interest in what might be a great new home for us too!

It turned out to be a great choice for our family and so we moved directly from Bali to Buderim on the Sunshine Coast beginning of 2018 – hence the name change ‘From Bali to Buderim’ on our social media.

This blog highlights our experiences before, during and after living in Bali as well as fantastic expat interviews that I continue to write with friends who live in Bali.

The experience of moving to Bali from Australia and living in Bali with our young family prompted a consulting service to help other families in their decision-making and planning process.

Our ‘Make the Move’ service provides you with all the necessary tools to make your moving experience a positive one for the whole family. Click here to find out more.

Email your contact number and we will do a FREE 15 minute call discussing your needs and how we can help.

We hope you enjoy our stories, tips and insights into living and going to school on the magical island of Bali.
