Migration to the New South Wales North Coast 1986-1991: lifestyle motivated counterurbanisation.


"Some of [Australia's] most rapid population growth rates have been recorded on the North Coast of New South Wales. The paper sets this migration flow in an international context and looks in detail at the profile, decision-making, and experience of 150 households who moved to the North Coast in the 1986-1991 intercensal period. Results corroborate earlier findings that many coastal migrants are motivated by non-economic considerations. ┬┐Pull' factors are much more important than ┬┐push' factors, with the influence of the physical environment, climate and relaxed lifestyle dominant."
