My interest in moving abroad is well documented on these pages so that my research leads me there should be little surprise. Today, though, I found out something that did surprise. cairns-queensland

Britons have been emigrating to Australia in record numbers. In 2007, about 40,000 Brits made the move but 2008 saw a massive 31% leap in the number of Britons moving to Australia. Queensland proved to be the most popular destination for us Brits looking to set up a new home Down Under for the second year running.

Curious as to why so many of us are choosing to move to Queensland I did a bit of online rummaging (hence the image) and with views like that, the Great Barrier Reef and the fact that it seems to be summer all year round it’s little surprise why the Gold Coast seems to be getting a lot of business for international removals companies lately.

Though the question I’d like a definitive answer on is why so many of us are leaving all of a sudden: is it the economy? Considering that only went sour in the last half of 2008 does that mean ’09 will see even more of moving to Australia?
