Population change on the Gold Coast

Simone - Myth Buster

Simone has a rich background in human geography, demography and urban planning – a background that was useful in her previous roles in the Commonwealth and State Governments, and now as part of the forecast team at .id. From the Queensland coast to the southern suburbs of Perth, Simone produces population and dwelling forecasts that help local governments make informed decisions about future service and planning needs. She is a regular contributor to .id’s blog and has spoken at several conferences on how our cities and regions are changing. She is a big advocate of evidence-based planning and how Census and other data can inform this. Outside of work Simone is a keen traveller and photographer – interests that tie in well with her professional life and help her to understand “place”.

    According to reports, the Gold Coast is losing its tourist lustre! Why would either domestic or international tourists want to see high rise developments, the number of unemployed and the crassness of all this real estate? It’s not an image that Australia portrays to the world, and not appropriate. This is an example to avoid – giving freedom to the real estate industry, and their excessive demands.

    Agree to a point VivKay, but then families seem to love the theme parks, and Victorians love to get away from the cold of winter for a week or so!

    People are coming to live instead. Great climate, great lifestyle, and something for everyone. I believe population growth and tourist numbers continue to excelerate . Personally I love the high rise buildings.
