27K monthly income in pretty darn good.
Are you fazed by the exchange rate which makes your money worth 30% less?

@Sandy Ngatoro Welcome to the site! First steps would be to check out the BP blog and podcasts to define your niche.

You didn't mention if you intended to invest in Oz or the US? The cash flow opportunities here in the US far outweigh those in Australia, but the current exchange rate might be painful.

My wife and I are from the Hunter Valley (just north of you) and live in the US now. We invest in both countries and like them for different reasons. Good luck investing.

Thanks Aaron, ill start looking into the BP blogs and podcasts, also thanks for the welcome.  yes, my wife and I would like to invest abroad, in the US, NZ and Australia markets for investment opportunities.  once we have gained knowledge and built a solid foundation,with BiggerPockets then we look forward in keeping in contact with you. thanks again.
