Goondiwindi was found to outperform all other Queensland towns all courtesy of its above-average income, demographic diversity, low unemployment, a cohesive community and well-performing public services, according to The Australian newspaper.
The data which was taken from the 2016 Census results, and analysed by social commentator Bernard Salt in collaboration with co-director of The Demographics Group Simon Kuestenmacher, saw 1850 towns across Australian taken into consideration for the title. That number was culled to see a finalist from each state and territory.
Goondiwindi mayor Graeme Scheu said he was “thrilled to have the town's success recognised on a national scale.”
