There are an element of people who live here in Australia, but not all of them are actually born here, which I have always found slightly amusing. We have a multi-cultural society and people from all countries have made their home here in Australia. The majority of these people have assimilated well into the community, with a few exceptions of course. Regardless of where a person comes from they get equal opportunities here in Australia. They can buy a home, get a loan from the bank, buy a car, work and all those other things that we have come to expect. If a person chooses to migrate here from another country and they become a citizen they have the right to vote as well, and in a democracy that is most important. I do not know what the demand is for environmental engineers but generally qualified experienced people in this field are in demand in most countries. It will all depend on what you want to do, where you want to live and where you can get a job.

We do have a few regressive idiots who are racist, but not much in the professional areas, unless you're a bit unlucky. The racists tend to be the uneducated, or the just plain sleazy ones. They've been useless since Captain Cook. Ignore them, they deserve it.
