It is evident that approximately about 80 percent of migrants settle in Sydney or Melbourne.  The remainder choose the rest of the eastern coast region.  Far and few travel outside metropolitan regions. Meanwhile, many regional towns continue to experience population decline and struggle to maintain the viability of basic services.  For example, a town of Pilbara has experienced consistent decline it it’s population.

Migration policy should take into account local population density and needs and encourage migrants to settle in regional Australia.

The National Farmers Federation is seeking that government makes further incentives for migrants to travel to regional Australia to ensure that population growth is evenly spread.  For example, some incentive ideas include:
