Definitely not, Melbourne still has almost double the population of Brisbane and has actually grown much faster than Sydney in past half a decade. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think in the last few years, Melbourne has been the fastest growing Australian city when it comes to absolute gain in numbers, while Brisbane had a higher growth percentage due to its smaller base.

-G'day-

recent sensis results showed that south east queensland is the fastest growing region in australia. approx 1500 people a week are moving up here. currently 4.75million in queenland and 3million in the south-east give it 10-20 years and brisbane will be huge and the powerhouse of aus. satistics never lie.

Well any geographer might disagree with that Queenslander rule or Yank rule....seems not terrible bright. Queensland would be the Mexico, NSW would be America and Victoria would be Canada.....the cool, wordly one. To say otherwise makes you sound like a dill.........and I'm sure your not. Anyway, remember your SOUTH of the EQUATOR so different rules apply
.......eg. it gets colder as you head SOUTH. LOL

It is a private University, fairly well regarded, all the students that go there pay fees directly to the Uni, most other Universities only charge foreign students directly (so no change there). But for Australian students other universities offer HECS which is a system where the government pays your fees, and you pay them back later once you have started earning a certain amount per year. Generally they work out much cheaper.

I do know several people that have attended Bond Uni, they all seemed to like it, the class sizes are fairly small, and it's fairly intensive (They run 3 semester per year rather than 2 so they do not have the very long break that most do at the end of the year.) I personally had the option of attending there, but even with them offering to waive a portion of my fees (academic schollarship) it was still many times more expensive than the alternative universities - Though for international students, the fees may be more similar.

The reason for the term, aside from being 'south' is that the majority of Australia's internal migration is from Victoria and NSW to Queensland. (Though Victoria and NSW do gain I believe a slightly higher share of the international immigration). The similarity is seen with Mexican immigration to the USA.

Last time I ran the numbers (a couple of years ago), Brisbane would be larger than Melbourne's 'present' size by about 2018, and would be larger than Melbourne's future size in 2081 or something as equally silly. Of course, that was assuming something that you really cannot, which is that the % growth would stay the same. It could be much earlier or much later, as it stands I believe it's looking to be much earlier, but you really do not know.
