The Regional Population Growth report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows us which Bendigo areas are seeing population growth and decline.

As you can see above, White Hills-Ascot and Strathfieldsaye have seen big changes over the last decade.

On the other hand, more rural areas north of Bendigo like Loddon and Lockington-Gunbower are losing people.

Overall, Bendigo's grown by 18.3% to 95 587 residents since 2006, which is a rate slightly less than Ballarat but more than Geelong.

Mayor of The City of Greater Bendigo, Cr Margaret O'Rourke, knows why our region's proving popular with migrants from Australia and the rest of the World.

“Housing affordability, a strong, diverse local economy, a range of education providers, Australia’s best regional art gallery, premier health facilities, no traffic and a beautiful natural environment make Greater Bendigo a very attractive place to live."

Melbourne's booming too thanks to high overseas migration.

In one year the city grew up to 4.72 million in July 2016.
