Gold Coast Experience

The Gold Coast has long been a favourite destination. As Australia’s greatest icon beach city, the Gold Coast is ideally positioned for continued progress and prosperity. With dynamic cityscape, dramatic mountains and the blue Pacific as the inspiring backdrop to life, the special blend of beach culture and cosmopolitan excitement has always fuelled growth.

The Gold Coast provides fast, easy access to transport, schools, universities, airports and health and business facilities. Little wonder it continues to thrive as a lifestyle hub and preferred address for discerning residents.

It is now Australia’s sixth largest city and one of Australia’s leading holiday destinations. The permanent population is proof of the appeal of the Gold Coast. In little less than 50 years, the population has grown 15-fold to 425,418 in June 2001 with an annual population growth rate of 3.5 per cent being the highest in the country.

The Gold Coast’s economy is alive and well. In the five years to 2001, its population increased by 18.1%, job growth by 17.7% and household growth by 20.3% cementing the Coast’s position as much more than a holiday destination.

The Estimated Resident Population (ERP) of the Gold Coast City at 30 June 2002 was 438,473 persons. Click Here for further information:

The population is expected to increase to 700,407 residents in the year 2021.

Sydney residents boost Gold Coast population

Property developers have been told most people who move to the Gold Coast come from Sydney and the majority of them settle near the beach.

Demographer and author Bernard Salt told a business luncheon census figures identify Sydney as the major source of the Gold Coast's population growth.

He says Brisbane and Melbourne also lose a significant number of residents to the tourist capital each year.

"There is the suburban market for first home owners, the principal buyers of which come down from Brisbane along the Pacific Highway corridor," he said.

"Then there is another market on the coast principally being fed by purchasers coming out of Sydney and Brisbane and to a much lesser extent Melbourne."

Population Forecasts - City of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne population and household forecasts are designed to inform community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public about the future residential population of Melbourne.

In 2001, the total population of the City of Melbourne was estimated at 52,117. It is expected to increase by almost 58,000 people to 109,660 by 2016.

This large growth in population is a result of the attraction of inner suburbs of Melbourne for tertiary education, employment opportunities and city atmosphere. Most of the population migrating to the City are young adults in their late teens and twenties.

Melbourne has been declared the near-perfect town after being rated the best city in the world to call home.

In a survey of 130 cities, the Economist Intelligence Unit rated Melbourne and Vancouver in Canada as the best cities in the world in which to live, with Perth ranked third and Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide tied in eighth place.

Melbourne ranked world's top city

February 6, 2004

Melbourne has retained its position as the best city in the world to call home.

Often derided as Bleak City by Sydneysiders, Melbourne topped a survey of 130 cities, narrowly beating out the other four Australian capitals surveyed - because its weather rated the best.

Sydney lost ground because its crime rate was rated on a par with New York and London.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) survey ranked Melbourne, Vancouver and Vienna as the best cities for expatriates to live, with Perth fourth and Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney equal sixth.

Geneva was ranked fifth, while Papua New Guinea's capital Port Moresby kept the title it took in the last survey in October 2002 as the worst.

"Melbourne pretty much top scored in everything," said survey co-editor Jon Copestake.

"But the difference between all the Australian cities is minimal. One thing Sydney had different to the other cities was a higher crime rate, and it's climate. It's level of humidity was worse than Melbourne's."

Victorian Tourism Minister John Pandazopoulos said the award was based on a survey of a city's infrastructure, access, education levels, crime rate, focus on the environment, culture and events, its diversity and how connected it was with the rest of the world.

Mr Pandazopoulos said even Melbourne's weather rated better than Sydney's.

"It's a brilliant pat on the back for Melbourne, particularly for two years in a row," he said.

"We already promote ourselves as the world's most liveable city, we can continue doing that."

Mr Pandazopoulos said the award backed Victoria's record as the only Australian state in which international visitor rates grew for the past two years.

He said Melbourne was also a very affordable city, where people got value for money for great products, including top fashion and restaurants.

He said the government would continue to work hard to meet the balance of stimulating a vibrant economy and social standards to ensure Melbourne remained one of the world's best cities.

The London-based EIU assessed the level of hardship for expatriates in the 130 cities, using 12 factors including housing, education, recreational activities, health, climate and terrorism.

Cities were rated one to five in the 12 categories, with one meaning there was no hardship and five indicating extreme hardship.

Melbourne received the perfect one in each category, including its unpredictable weather, to give it an overall score of one.

The other Australian cities were all given a two for climate, while Adelaide also received two for housing, Brisbane and Perth scored two for transport and Sydney for its crime. Port Moresby received five for crime and an overall score of 80.

While Perth was given an overall mark of 1.1, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney scored 1.2.

The heightened terrorist threat only had a minimal impact on western cities, even those in the United States, largely because of newly developed security measures.

The highest ranked US city was Honolulu in 19th on eight points, while New York was 51st with 16 and Washington was the lowest of 16 American cities in the survey at 57th, mainly due to a higher risk of terrorism giving it an overall score of 19.

London was equal 45th, along with Los Angeles, Madrid and San Francisco.

Kuwait fell the most places, dropping from 87 to 97 because of the war in neighbouring Iraq, while Harare suffered the greatest actual drop in living standards as a result of ongoing unrest and slid eight places to 118.

The Iraqi capital Baghdad was not included in the survey.

Home buyers want function, space & personality

Home buyers are looking for house designs which are functional, thoughtfully planned, include plenty of space and exude warmth and personality according to the most recent new home buyer survey by the American National Association of Home Builders.

The survey, which is sent out to more than 3,000 households across the nation, asks respondents to rank a series of 90 features and home amenities as either a “must have” item, a “would be desirable” item, “indifferent” or a “didn’t want it” item.

The results showed the top two “must have” home features included an outdoor living or entertaining area such as a patio or deck, and plenty of trees.

In the bathroom, home buyers ranked exhaust fans, linen storage, separate shower enclosures and spa baths as “must have” items, while in the remainder of the house extra storage and cupboard space was the most requested feature.

Personal “get away” spaces also featured highly on the “must have” list of survey respondents. These included nooks, window seats and private sitting areas which act as little getaways throughout the house.

The kitchen also features highly in the “must have” category, with features such as walk in pantries, island benches, built in microwave spaces and purpose built storage areas all ranking as “must haves”.

In fact, we could see major changes to kitchen design over the next ten years with many kitchen specialists predicting the kitchen, as the hub of the home, will continue to have its boundaries broken down.

According to the experts our kitchens will become more open to living and dining areas, with the ultimate aim of the kitchen becoming more of a multi purpose room for cooking, dining, doing home work and relaxing.

It will be interesting to see if these features influence house design in Australia in coming years. Our lifestyle and climate certainly suggest a more open plan approach to living.
