Coast suburbs to explode by 2043 | SCD article by Matty Holdsworth | 11th Oct 2018

COAST suburbs are predicted to explode in population over the next 25 years with one expected to multiply by 305 per cent. On the back of Stockland’s $5 billion Aura development, Caloundra West is predicted to sky rocket from 17,000 to 72,000 over the next two decades. Landsborough too – 10,301 to 39,895 – is ready to shoot up, as is the Wurtulla and Birtinya area (up 149 per cent) and Nambour (up 73 per cent).

On the back of the booming new CBD, Maroochydore and Kuluin is expected to rise from 18,775 to 44,762. Demographer Bernard Salt said the population boom in locations outside of Brisbane showcased the uniqueness of SEQ.

“It (SEQ) is quickly emerging as Australia’s third global force and, as such, it will offer all the urban amenity and quality you would expect from an urban conurbation of that scale,” he said. “Southeast Queensland is like the inside of a clock, with a big cog surrounded by several smaller cogs working together – the surrounding council areas in Greater Brisbane, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and Toowoomba. “They are independent but connected. You can be part of a greater whole but not be swamped by a Los Angeles sprawl as you might get in Sydney.”
