AUSTRALIAN RESIDENT DEPARTURES
The short-term resident departures from Australia in 2005 is the highest number of resident departures ever recorded for a year. In 2004 there were 4.4 million resident departures.
The top destinations for Australian residents departing short term during 2005 were New Zealand (835,400 departures), United States of America (426,300), United Kingdom (404,200), Indonesia (319,700) and China (235,100) (table 21.12).
Between 2004 and 2005 the number of short-term resident departures increased by 29% to China, 22% to Hong Kong, and 19% to Singapore. Short-term departures to Indonesia decreased by 5%, having recovered strongly from the decline in 2003 which followed the Bali bombing in October 2002 (table 21.12).
