This presentation is based on the results of the longitudinal survey of almost 1,000 new immigrants in regional and rural Australia (Collins and Krivokapic-Skoko, 2011). The survey was designed to answer the questions of what it would take to keep the new immigrants in small regional townships and rural areas. The main topics covered by this survey were: (a) migrant decisions and mobility, (b) labour market experience, (c) migrant satisfaction and (d) community participation. We also selected five regional and rural towns in New South Wales and Western Australia with a significant number of new immigrants for closer fieldwork involving interviews with new immigrants, key business, government and community stakeholders and long-term residents.
