Combined with this, the City of Perth -which includes the CBD, East and West Perth and Northbridge – was the fastest growing local authority area in Australia.

The report Regional Population Growth, Australia 2008-09 showed that 12.8 per cent more people called the 12.7 square kilometre municipality home than the year before.
Most of the state’s growth was due to Australia immigration, followed by natural birth increase, then interstate migration.

Perth was closely followed by Darwin’s 3.1 per cent population growth.

In related news. The headline on the front of the local ‘Western Australian’ newspaper this morning was “Perth Average House Price Hits $500,000”

This and the strong Aussie Dollar probably won’t make good reading to those looking to call Perth their new home. It’s not as cheap as it used to be in the ‘good old days’ thats for sure!
