Gold Coast Population Surges
October 1 2021
With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year it is easy to see why the allure of the Gold Coast is so strong to our interstate neighbours.
For those seeking a lifestyle change, the Gold Coast is Queensland’s most popular destination. According to The Regional Movers Index 2021, 1 in 10 city dwellers across Australia chose to move to the Coast over other regional areas.
The Gold Coast’s population is growing rapidly along with the remainder of the sunshine state. Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for the year ending 31 March 2021 show that interstate migration is at an all-time high. Queensland recorded a 43,933 net increase in population with around 70 percent of this growth attributed to those relocating from other states, while Victoria showed an extreme decline.
This growth has a predicted surge once more when international borders reopen.
With population numbers expected to jump once international travel resumes, there will be a dramatic increase in property demand throughout the state and in particular, the Gold Coast, making this the perfect time to buy, sell, or invest.
