I noticed that the month with the highest number of Australian Citizens returning home is January. I wondered why at first, but then realised that many might be coming home after spending Christmas with family in their old home country.

I checked the departure numbers, and Yes, the highest number of Australian Citizens leaving Australia is in December.

Some of course might just be going overseas on normal holidays.

July and October are the next two months for large numbers returning.

January, April, July and October are the start of term months for most Australian schools.

And April is the 4th highest month for Australian Citizens returning home.

Overseas holidays taken during school holiday times does appear to be popular.
