Pimpama Named Third Fastest Growing Suburb In Australia

Northern Gold Coast's population boom

Pimpama Named Third Fastest Growing Suburb In Australia

It looks like plenty of people are moving to the Northern Gold Coast, according to new figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

From 2016 to 2017, there was a population growth of more than 4.5% in Biggera Waters, Hope Island and Ormeau, while Coomera recorded an increase of more than 10%.

However, those figures were nothing compared to the whopping 30.8% boom in Pimpama.

The figures show an extra 3,000 people moved in to the up-and-coming area over that year, making it the third fastest growing suburb in Australia.

It came in behind Yuroke in Melbourne (35%), and Coombs in the ACT (34%).
