More and more city dwellers may want to move to regional areas like the Riverland, following new research conducted by The Regional Australia Institute.
The data showed that one in five from Australia’s cities was looking to move to the regions, with more than half wanting to make the jump within the next 12 months.
RAI CEO Liz Ritchie said metro movers are looking for more space, to be better connected to the natural environment and they want a more relaxed lifestyle – all the things that Regional Australia has to offer.
While the data showed the COVID pandemic significantly raised the desire for some to move to Regional Australia, more than half said they were already considering relocation before the pandemic.
