Step 1 - Read the complete webquest so that you understand what is expected of you and how to go about it.
Step 2 - Find out where your country is through this link, what its current political situation is, and think about why you would wish to leave the country and move to Australia. The reasons may be within the country or within you depending on your allocated character.
Step 3 - Research, in detail, the Department of Immigration website particularly the sections on migrating to Australia, including the Overview and the special section for your character; life in Australia; and Multicultural Australia.
