Contemplating a move but want to know a bit more about the area you're considering and make sure you'll fit in? Suburb Matchmaker draws on a range of information to help you find the best match.
While you can use Suburb Matchmaker to drill into demographic information about where you currently live, its neatest trick is asking you a series of questions about what you'd like in a given area (such as ratio of genders, religious preferences, and average age) and matching you to suitable local government areas.
You need to be a bit selective with the metrics — once I'd chosen five, I was apparently too fussy for anywhere — but it's an interesting alternative approach to considering the characteristics of where you might live. The site currently features only NSW government areas, but promises further expansion in the future.
