Many Britons who want to move abroad are increasingly setting up home in Australia, a media report has revealed.
The Western Mail stated that the antipodean country is currently the most popular destination among expatriates from the UK.
According to the newspaper, British consumers have been drawn to an Australian property by a number of different factors.
The friendly nature of local people was cited as one important consideration, along with the various economic opportunities it offers.
In addition, the publication said that many British people were tempted to live there on a permanent basis because it offers a much better climate than the UK.
This comes after Paul Arthur of The Emigration Group said Australia is proving to be highly popular with expats as it has lower living costs than the UK.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, he added that it also has “huge shortfalls” of skilled labour, which means it also has numerous job opportunities.
