The paper attempts to explore short-distance and long-distance migration in Australia. Typically shortdistance moves are regarded as motivated by housing preference while longer-distance migration primarily by employment considerations. Longer-distance migration typically between regions or states as well international migration is widely researched and discussed in policy formulation. Short-distance migration has not received much attention and it is a relatively neglected filed of research. Relocation of a household to a neighbouring suburb involves change of location of housing but it does not always involve change of employment and thus it is a partial migration. On the contrary, longer-distance migration invariably involves change of employment and housing and it is not taken lightly.
