A Kiwi living in Australia’s not surprised by the huge number of New Zealanders and Maori moving across the ditch.

Latest census figures show 483,000 New Zealanders now call Australia home – 130,000 of them are Maori.

By far the biggest numbers have moved to Queensland – with 98,000 New Zealanders there.

KiwisinOz.com.au managing director Ramesh Naran says that number is large, but he’s confident it’ll get even bigger in years to come.

He says New Zealanders are still attracted by the lifestyle and stronger economy, although many are now trying to secure jobs before they move across.

    Kia ora Paula. We used this image of the Queensland Maori Rugby League as it represented the strong sense of Maori identity within Australia and wished to highlight a positive about such moves, as most times we hear about whanau moving to Australia, there is always something negative said.
