Australian Foreign Investment Policy
Melbourne needs very little introduction. From its world famous MCG, Arts Centre and cafes to its sparkling white sandy beaches, Melbournes iconic images are instantly recognised all over the world.
Melbourne embodies everything that is good about Australia – a vibrant arts scene, great nightlife, a cosmopolitan population (and with that, wonderful international cuisine) and an endless list of activities to enjoy.
Within a few hours’ drive of the City, you can escape to the fresh air of the Mornington Peninsula, the scenery and skifields of the Snowy Mountains and the world-class vineyards of the Yarra Valley. And, of course, Australians are some of the friendliest and most hospitable people around.
Little wonder then, with its endless attractions, that Melbourne has also become a major real estate investment destination.
Finding A Suitable Property
The Australian Government’s approach to foreign investment is to encourage investments which are consistent with community interests.
In recognition of the contribution foreign investment has made and continues to make towards the development of Australia, the general policy stance is to welcome foreign investment.
