Melbourne, Perth lead population growth

Six of the ten fastest growing Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the country for 2010 and 2011 were in the outer suburban fringes of Melbourne and Perth, new data shows.

This growth contributed to a population increase in Australia's capital cities of 224,400 people, more than two-thirds of the growth in the Australian population.

According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Melbourne had the largest increase, up by 66,900 people, followed by Sydney at 59,800 and Perth, which was up by 42,800.

Overall though, population growth in Australian capital cities slowed. Apart from Perth, population growth in all capital cities was down.

Darwin slowed the most, down from 2.0 per cent growth in 2009-10 to just 0.5 per cent in 2010-11.

In New South Wales, the fastest growing areas were Canada Bay with 3.0 per cent, Camden 2.8 per cent and Parramatta at 2.5 per cent.

Nine of the ten fastest growing areas outside of Sydney were located in NSW, led by Maitland and Orange.
