It is about the money, but along with that have come some amazing aspects to both Brisbane/Gold Coast and SEQ all together. I will honestly miss it here when I move to Melbourne, but I will be up here every other month or will at least try. It really is an amazing place to live.

The weather is fabulous and that is the thing which really attracts people to the place. When the infrastructure finally catches up with the population growth, particularly on the Sunshine Coast it will be a far more liveable place. I do think parts of New Zealand will experience this type of growth. Places like Tauranga are growing at a similar growth rate. In time New Zealand will experience its own boom.

i have a very soft spot for the place what with plenty of family and friends living there from the gold coast to north of brisbane.

The more often I go back to New Zealand the more I am convinced that the place is amazing, I absolutely love the place. I am feeling quite optimistic about what this new government can do for New Zealand, despite not voting National. I have seen how optimistic Queensland is about its future and despite the fact Aussies are often brash and overconfident, I think some of that is needed in New Zealand. I don't mean arrogance, I do think Kiwis should be proud of their country and should be looking at building an exciting and productive future for the country. I am curious to know more about this new $7.5 billion economic stimulus package which is being offered over the next 2 years, it almost warrants a new thread. Anyone have any details on it?

You could always come back. They're trying to persuade Kiwis to get back here afterall. You and Rob arriving would make up for myself and my family leaving!

I'd put money on the June '08 data showing the change over.

In a few years time a lot of expats will start coming home. The government still need to do a bit of work yet. They still need to apply the right stimulus, whether that is lower tax rates, better infrastructure or some incentive to be part of a new exciting future. Something along those lines.

I know about 80,000,000 million Vietnamese who would like to move here. Countries are about same size= do you think you can handle 20x population?

well it isnt tax cuts... when i get paid double for doing what id get here no amount of tax will 'stimulate' me to come back. commercial tax though, is a different story, perhaps creating the jobs and competition to drive wages and salary's up along with other smart incentives.

i just hope this national government doesnt do what it usually does and throw the baby out with the bath water...

Interesting that Victoria's growth in numbers was more than NSWs. Melbourne sprawl I assume?

NSW is in deep trouble at the moment and a bit of shine seems to have come off the Sydney pull. Plus Melbourne became quite the little posterboy for regeneration from its old monicker of "Bleak City". From basketcase to revitalised metropolis.

Svarty, are you leaving NZ? Are you heading for Australia or the UK?

Definitely not Australia (really doesn't appeal anymore). I've decided it's Europe for me. After my Masters year next year I'm applying for a position at the MDC in Berlin for a PhD. If I fail to achieve a place there, I intend to apply at Oxbridge and London institutions for Cancer Cell Biology PhD's (specifically research into Wnt signalling as I like that pathway).

My family are moving back to the UK they've decided when it is economically feasible to do so.

Lots can happen in that time, however, that is the plan for now! As fantastic as the cancer research department is at Auckland Uni, I feel that I need international experience.

Haha, that would definitely be on the cards mate. I've always said that it's an open invite for anyone meet up with me* if people are in the area. I've already met a few members of Kiwiscrapers and each time they've turned out to be great guys.

Fair while yet though til I make it to Germany. Got a lot of hurdles to jump through first least of all getting my research to work, getting my research published, speaking at conferences and getting a dissertation written all within a year! It'll be a bumpy ride, but I look forward to it!


*Disclaimer: If I happen to feel that anyone who offers has the perchance to be an axe murderer I shall decline their invitation forthwith.
