Welcome to Australia’s wild West

1000 a week warm to State of Emergency

Posted by occidentprone on June 25, 2008

People are flooding into WA, where the streets are apparently paved with gold and money flows as freely as natural gas:

Figures released by the Bureau of Statistics show Western Australia’s population has increased by almost 1000 people a week.

Australia’s population increased by 332,000 people to 21.18 million.

Western Australia and the Northern Territory had the fastest population growth of 2.4 per cent in 2007.

Western Australia’s increased was due to interstate and overseas migration, and natural increases.

The figures show 4000 people from interstate moved to Western Australia during the year. (Source: ABC)
