    Melbourne attracting 1,760 people every week - myGC.com.au

    Melbourne, apparently, ahead of Sydney and then Brisbane.

    That's if you look at total numbers it seems.

    If you look at % population growth (which may actually be more interesting from an investors perspective) in pretty sure The Gold Coast would be our fastest growing city.

    Would also be interesting to know the stats if they considered Gold Coast and Brisbane to be a single city.

    Yes very true...know at a couple of families in Sydney selling out of Sydney and buying land in Melbourne and building in suburbs 20-30 klms out...once built they plan to move to Melbourne. By then they would have a fully paid new house.

    Seeing more and more of this particularly people from Sydney who are finding the high prices a real challenge.

    My personal believe...is the next city to look at is Perth....they too have large immigration numbers. Though it is down....the suburbs 10-20 klms out are cheap compared to other cities.

    According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the four fastest growing areas nationally were in Melbourne. And they were all on the fringe of Greater Melbourne. They were Point Cook, Cranbourne East, Epping and South Morang.

    Melbourne is seeing the biggest population growth in the country as mentioned.

    This is happening as the end of the mining boom redistributes growth away from Western Australia.

    Unfortunately for me Perth’s growth is now the slowest it’s been in a decade. ouch

    Perth will be slow or even shrink for a while I would think. For growth I think most obvious is Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane/Gold Coast.

    Perth is getting smaller as we type.

    M e l b o u r n e is expanding rapidly.

    S y dney is growing on its western fringe

    Thought I read about that in the paper today and so I bought 50 acres of the stuff, got it for a steal too the guy only wanted 500,000 so I transferred it already, jokes on him when I sell them for 1M for a 1/4 when the project is completed.

    Yes...what better place to low ball.....the facts are that it will over take Brissie in size..due to the rate of immigration. Slowed a bit but still trucking along...

    Melbourne. What a surprise. It's touted to be Australia's biggest city by 2030.
