Ever been told you need to move your life a thousand kilometres away? With political imperatives seeing government departments move at the drop of a hat and the growing attractiveness of regional Australian hubs for knowledge workers wanting to avoid high house prices and the stress of the inner city, there's a sea change happening. However, it can be hard to know whether you should move, and if you do, where you should go. is here to help! We mash together a range of data sources, including census data, to provide a ranking of regional towns against sensible—and not so sensible—factors. We then present users with selectable quality of life preferences in order to suggest the perfect place for a relocation. So, come with us and get out of town!
