The UK is also the largest source of visitors to Australia, with 590,000 Brits holidaying in 2009/10. The year-on-year increment is between 25,000 and 30,000 new permanent UK-born people.
Interestingly enough, the median age of British-born migrants in Australia is 53 years old, while the labour force participation rate was 60%, which is lower than the national average of 65%.
New South Wales was the most popular state for UK-born residents in Australia at the time of the last Census in 2006, with 25%.
