Default Interstate millenial migration - winners and losers

Queensland has recorded the highest interstate arrivals as people leave NSW and Victoria. The shift is thought to be due to Brisbane's emerging global city status and will soon also attract international migrants and overseas migrants when our borders open.

TBH I'm a bit ambivalent about the influx. Queensland is a stunning place to live and work, fantastic for families and has a work/life balance that is second to none. The climate is sublime and we have the most diverse ecosystem in the world. However, I do wonder if that's all about to be compromised by too much inward migration and whether it will turn us into another Melb or Sydney if its not managed correctly when travel restrictions are lifted.

The Millennial migration: Qld records highest interstate arrivals as people leave NSW, Vic.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows Queensland gained the most people, about 7000, from net interstate migration over the March 2021 quarter, while Victoria lost the most at almost 5000, followed closely by NSW at 4500 people.

In the March 2020 quarter, Queensland recorded the most arrivals across the country at 24,000.

The state also recorded the highest arrivals again in March this year, at 28,500.

The ABS said in net terms, NSW only gained people from Victoria, 880, and lost most to Queensland, about 3800 https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/nat...04-p5960o.html

Unlikely. Most of this migration is retirees and people without enough $$$$ to buy a house in Sydney in Melbourne. Its cheap for a reason.

They're saying 12,000 people are in the border pass system waiting to enter Queensland

Yes I wondered that, but unfortunately the article didn't say how many.

But 20,000 is nothing. Once we hit 80% vaccination rate, and the quarantine restrictions are lifted for fully vaxxed domestic travellers, they are expecting 40,000 vehicles a day to enter Queensland. This is likely to be some time between 12-17 Dec. Of course, they'll all have to have a negative test (which is a good thing) but that's a small price for people to pay to access QLD and enjoy what's on offer here.

International arrivals will still have to quarantine for 14 days, but if they're citizens or permanent residents they'll be allowed to do that at home. At 90% that gets lifted and they'll just need a negative test.

Its shaping up to be an extremely good Christmas. Let's hope the weather doesn't let us down

A mate of mine who's wife is from Brisbane is planning on trying to enter with the family with the text message version of the test, in the hope that they are turned away and they can spend Xmas on the Northern NSW coast. He's keeping the PCR testing requirement quiet and knows his Mrs is too disorganised to check. A little bit mean but he can't stand Brisbane. No beach Brisbane over Xmas is just not on.

Only if they meet the list of requirements.

Yes. They're all there on the QLD Health website. Great source of reliable information.
