Understanding Population Mobility In Regional Australia

The Regional Australia Institute has released its report, The Big Movers, which unpacks population trends around the country, and confirms that regional Australia attracted more people than it lost to capital cities during the last Census – 65,204 more to be precise.

Between 2011 and 2016, more than 1.2 million people either moved to regional Australia or moved around regional Australia from one location to another. More than 500,000 of these people moved from a capital city to the regions.
