Migration to Queensland highest in eight years

While South Australia struggles with population growth and impact of interstate migration on the State, the number of interstate migrants to Queensland has been the highest it's been for eight years.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told state parliament on Wednesday that 15,716 people moved to Queensland in the year to March 2017, with most of those coming from NSW.

She said factors such as promoting Queensland as an attractive destination to move to, lower taxes and house prices were driving this migration growth.
