    I think including Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast in regional Queensland isn’t really useful these days. The SEQ region is basically one metropolitan area.

    • Agreed – it’s one large urban area – though labour markets are pretty discrete. Calling Gold Coast regional though does distort the regional figures. Nothing we can do about it for these broader statistics at the moment as they use the official ABS definition.

  2. That’s interesting, Glenn. It might be interesting to look at the relationships between residential property price differences between Melbourne and SEQ and Sydney and SEQ, and population outflows.

    Newcastle has also seen a boom with tight rental market and property prices jumping significantly. I’d be interested in seeing a report on areas like this as well.
