Melbourne is about 3 times the size of Perth. In absolute numbers Melbourne may have grown by a few extra but in percentage terms Perth has grown much faster. And I read that Bunbury / Mandurah are the fastest 2 growing places of all (not just the major cities). That is the thing with statistics - you use them to tell different stories. Obviously the Melbourne and Perth press both use the information to show THEY are the fastest growing

Here is the west coast take on this story:

12% growth in Perth and Wanneroo (our region) it was even higher.

I guess when you are looking at pressure on the house market it is the actual numbers that matter rather than the % growth...having seen the rental prices in Melb v the house prices it is definately a great place to invest, the greater potential for house price inflation is just a bonus!

Places like Melbourne or Sydney, although stagnant compared to Perth or SE Qld, will always have a good long term future. They are big, rich cities that attract a lot of people and are basically the international 'face' of Australia. Although Perth is going to keep growing fast, it will never be as big as, or have the image of Melbourne and Sydney.

........Which if judging by what BHP, FMG, Woodside, Chevron have announced in the last few weeks is a long way off in the future. Expect the resources boom to last into 2012 at the least.

I have given up trying to predict what will happen and when, watching how the world reacts to a drop in the Chinese stock market this week indicates how suddenly things can take a turn irrespective of the domestic economy...

Sure, nobody can predict the future but note that the day after the stock market blip, BHP announced an expansion of their WA iron ore output from the current 110mtpa (million tonnes per annum) to 300mtpa by the next decade. Also this week FMG announced that they want to go to 110mtpa from their planned 45mtpa and the Pluto LNG project was given the go ahead by the government.

I like to think that most people come to Brisbane as the broadband coverage is so good, you can go online and see how bad the UK is and then look out the window and see why it was all worth it.
