There are some surprising results. Propertyology has analysed them for you here… 

  • Western Australia continues to be attract the highest overall population growth rate (2.9%), followed by Victoria (1.9%), Queensland and Northern Territory (both 1.7%) and New South Wales (1.5%)
  • Victoria and Queensland lead the way with the highest net increase of interstate migration
  • 11,219 more residents left New South Wales than arrived (Sydney having the most expensive housing costs would be a common cause)
