    The Kiwi exodus to Australia has hit another all-time high of almost 1000 people a week, depopulating the equivalent of Gisborne or Invercargill in the past year.
    Just over 1.1 per cent of New Zealanders, or 50,115 people, made the one-way trip on a permanent or long-term basis in the year to last month - breaching the 50,000 barrier for the first time.
    Only 14,357, mostly NZ citizens, made the reverse trip, pushing the net outflow up to 35,758 - also a record.

      It's true...

      Yep, I'm afraid that a significant number of the 1,000 kiwis a week flooding over to Aus will disappointingly realise in the New Year that El Dorado's streets were only ever gold-plated. I live in Aus. The average Aussie still believes they have a sense of entitlement in the lucky country - others are starting to feel a little concern though. Public Service jobs are pretty much toast in Vic and NSW and soon Qld.
      Being such a 'traditional' society, it's amazing the number of Aus women that I work with who acknowledge that while they may well lose their own jobs, 'hubby will always be safe' or 'it'll never happen to hubby.' Time will tell I guess.
