Australia’s population grows by 2.4%

  12 Jan 2024

Australia’s population grew by 2.4 per cent in the year to 30 June 2023, according to the figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) at the end of last year.

On 30 June 2023, our population was 26.6 million people, an increase of 624,100 people over the year.

Putting that in perspective it’s like adding one and a half Canberra’s to our population with the need for all the accommodation, services, infrastructure, and schools.

And this is at a time when construction of new dwellings is slumping.

This means we’ll be experiencing a housing shortage not just for 2024, but also for a number of years to come.
