100,300 to be exact. They're being described as economic refugees and their number dwarfs the number of asylum seekers arriving by boat (9607)
Australia is facing a flood of economic refugees. But the big numbers aren't from the north, they are from the across the Tasman, where Statistics New Zealand yesterday announced the biggest exodus to Australia on record.

Only 14,000 people moved from Aus to NZ, almost all of them returning New Zealanders. Which sorta rubbishes the myth that most New Zealanders return to New Zealand, most of them obviously don't.
