The government’s State of Australian Cities Report first appeared in 2010 as a way to track the overall progress of our most densely populated cities.
The 2014-2015 edition has just been released
The report offers very interesting insights into a range of drivers such as population, the economy, labour, infrastructure and transport. There are also fact sheets for twenty of our busiest cities.
A few fast facts for Perth
- The population of Perth is projected to increase to 5.45 million by 2061 making it Australia’s third most populous city (surpassing Brisbane).
- The largest population growth in fringe suburbs in 2012-13 was in Baldivis and Ellenbrook, which recorded growth of 3,200 and 2,500 people respectively.
- There was substantial growth in Fremantle Port’s container movements of between 4.5% and 5.5%.
- Of all capital cities, the average annual growth rate in airport passenger movements from 2010-11 to 2030-31 is anticipated to be fastest in Perth.
You can download the full report and fact sheets on the Dept of Infrastructure & Regional Development website.
We’re happy to report being very busy with a range of surveying projects all over Western Australia and now the Eastern States.
