Melbourne Set To Become Biggest City

by Troy Said on April 30, 2010

Melbourne is going to overtake Sydney as the biggest Australian City!

Victorian residents and businesses alike can be encouraged by a recent report by Urban Taskforce. As it stands, Melbourne’s long-term population growth of 1.3 per cent will see Melbourne as Australia’s largest city by 2037.

Victoria’s economic growth of 3.3 per cent compared to New South Wales of 1.7 per cent for years 2003-2009 is evidence that Victoria “is on the move”.

Employment Prospects Stronger In Melbourne

Employment prospects are also strong for Victoria at 2.1 per cent compared to 1.4 per cent for New South Wales.

Troy Said of Interstate Removals says moves between Melbourne to Sydney and return are even, however Perth and Brisbane seem to be attracting a wide demographic.

Given that airfares are very reasonable, moving interstate and being able to stay in touch with family and friends is not an issue.

The internet, social media and low mobile phone costs make it possible for most Australians to move to another state in Australia for employment or just the sea change and easily remain a part of their family.
