Record Number of Britons Heading Down Under

Recessional times and gloomy weather have sparked an exodus of emigrants to relocate Down Under to make their millions and start a new life.

New research has revealed that a record number of Britons are heading to Australia for new beginnings. Recessional times and gloomy weather have sparked an exodus of emigrants to relocate Down Under to make their millions and start a new life.

Queensland came top of a list of most desirable Antipode cities conducted by the Move Monitor. The survey was commissioned by the home and relocation company Pickfords, who revealed a 31% rise in the number of British people emigrating to Australia in 2008 (in comparison to the previous year).

The survey focused the relocation patterns of over 7000 Brits who relocated overseas last year. There was also a 44% rise in the number moving to Adelaide and a 42% increase to Melbourne.

The managing director of Pickford's, Kevin Pickford, himself moved to the Antipodes in 1982, but later returned to UK shores. He had this to say:

"I fully understand the draw of Australia, its attractions and benefits. I'm sure the quality of life, sunnier climate and diverse job opportunities play a big part in people's relocation decision."
