The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures show that over 30,000 Australians from other states migrated to Victoria in the six months leading to September 2014. The arrivals were most likely to come from New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland.

Victoria is already the destination of choice for business and investment migrants, with the state welcoming two thirds of the national total. This further contributes to an increase in Melbourne’s population of 2.25 per cent according to ABS figures – almost double the national average.

Melbourne is predicted to become Australia’s biggest city as early as 2030, with a projected population of over 8 million by 2056.
