Project Description


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way of life in modern Australia. One main noticeable change is the inter and intrastate migration.The population growth in metropolitan cities and the surrounding suburbs is decreasing with many Australians choosing to relocate to the country. This drive is largely attributable to the flexible working arrangements of many workplaces. The lower cost for real estate, lower cost of living, less congestion, and more greener places in regional towns are also likely driving reasons.
With increased net migration to the regions, the local governments should be prepared to cater for the new “suburban” population and be mindful of challenges,. With growth comes opportunities. In our project, we plan to link the services of country victoria with prospective movers. We aim to deliver a central platform where users are able to navigate local information about regional Victoria and obtain a balanced view about their move. This gives opportunities to the local councils to implement strategies to welcome new skilled members to their community in a competitive environment. Its a win-win scenario. With investments in public transport, recycling, health and education the regions can be more attractive to both migrants and councils. By providing this platform, we expect the councils to take a more front seat approach to implement sustainable population growth policies and provide the most complete view of services and environmental impact of migrating to the regions to prospective city dwellers.

Data Story


We used a range of data sets from open sources to understand the internal migration trends, the driving forces behind these and government resources digitally available to people. To have a detailed understanding we have provided this link https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pOI3BE7qCoE3DCjGiXfFNDr8n_iDTxx2/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=100933448418148086728&rtpof=true&sd=true
