    Interesting list Glenn!
    As a long term resident of Brisbane I can attest to it eventually merging with the Gold Coast. There is very little if any gap in the urban area these days and people in suburbs like Coomera on the northern Gold Coast identify equally with both Brisbane and Gold Coast for work/recreation. Working in central Brisbane I’m surrounded by commuters from Gold Coast.
    One thing though, Brisbane will remain the dominant city without a doubt 🙂
    The other thing I notice is Canberra seems to be gaining on Newcastle. Do you see it overtaking Newcastle because that would be a big change.

    • Yes, I was a bit tongue in cheek with the comment about Gold Coast taking over Brisbane – as Gold Coast are a .id subscriber, but Brisbane are not..

      Canberra-Queanbeyan’s growth rate is 1.1%, the same as Newcastle-Maitland. So it shouldn’t overtake, if that continues. There’s about 70,000 population difference between them currently.
