    Australia is the number one expat location for children’s health and wellbeing, according to the 2011 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey.

    While France is at the top of the 2011 Raising Children Abroad league table, Australia is ranked the number one destination for expat children in terms of their health and wellbeing, taking over the top spot from Spain.
    Expats here state that their children are spending much more time outdoors since relocating, with 75% reporting this to be true compared to just 53% in France and 47% overall.

    Children in Australia are also much more active than elsewhere, with 81% of expats suggesting that their children were playing more sports since moving to Australia than in their home country. These figures are again much higher than both France (47%) and the overall global average (46%)
