New Zealanders who end up living and working in Australia work on average harder and longer than Australians, an Aussie government survey has found.
The workers heading across the Tasman are generally older, professional and more focused on work, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Last year, the more than 500,000 Kiwis living in Australia had higher rates of employment than fellow Australians, AAP reports.
About 90 per cent of New Zealand men there have jobs whereas only 83 per cent of Australian men do.
Meanwhile, the percentage of Kiwis working full-time surpasses the rate of Australians by more than 10 per cent.
But we keep arriving in our droves over the past 20 years the Kiwi population in Australia has gone up a whopping 89 per cent.
Queensland seems to be the state of choice for New Zealanders, particularly Brisbane and Surfers Paradise.
A lot of men end up working in construction and manufacturing while women take up jobs in health care or retail.
