Abstract

[Extract:] In their agenda-setting book on the future of Australia cities, Weller and Bolleter (2013) contemplated Australia’s rapid and continual growth and its implications for the future Australian landscape. Setting views about a Big Australia to one side, these trends present Australian cities with some immutable challenges. Will Australians have to adapt to a deteriorating quality of life as cities accommodate this growth? Will the extra accommodation be built in the precincts where jobs are concentrated? Can cities grow to quarter more and more people without losing their liveability? Are there any special issues to consider in tropical Australia, a region that has experienced high population growth over the past decade and where the government has earmarked future development (Australian Government, 2014)?
