Queensland Population Growth

According to new data, some regions in Queensland have seen a significant increase in population growth during the pandemic, with an influx of 24,000 new residents in just three years. Despite the challenges posed by Covid-19, Queensland has experienced high levels of interstate migration, resulting in a total of 238,000 new residents added to the state between 2019 and 2022. This population growth is notable, as it is only slightly lower than the previous three-year period (253,000) and is a trend not seen in many other states during the pandemic.

Despite the impact of international immigration bans and lockdowns during the Covid-19 period, the population growth in Brisbane, Queensland continued to remain strong, driven by the popularity of the state among interstate migrants. According to KPMG demographics expert Terry Rawnsley, population growth in Brisbane during this period closely resembled that of the previous three years, highlighting the resilience and attractiveness of the Sunshine State.
