Why Do People Migrate to Australia?

The primary draw for people migrating to Australia is the availability of jobs for skilled workers. While the majority of immigrants to Australia are European, Australia welcomes immigrants from all around the world.

The racial and cultural diversity, as well as the indigent flora and fauna, draw people to Australia, also known as the "Land Down Under." The Outback and wide vistas contrast sharply with the cosmopolitan cities to offer visitors and residents unique experiences. Other factors that draw immigrants to Australia include quality of life, world-class educational opportunities, climate, international sports, and the natural wonders of sea and landscape.
