The New Gold Rush

More and more people continue to be attracted to the money to be made in Western Australia. New figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) show that Western Australia’s population grew by 3.4%, or nearly 82,000 people, over the 12 months to September 2012. According to the Director of ABS Demography, Bjorn Jarvis, this is the highest annual growth rate since the early 1970’s.
