Third place was filled by Melbourne, which recorded 1.3 per cent quarterly growth and 4.5 per cent annual growth.

Adelaide climbed by 0.8 per cent over the quarter and 2.5 per cent over the year, while Hobart climbed by 1.0 per cent over the quarter and 2.2 per cent over the year.

Darwin fell by 0.6 per cent over the quarter but rose by 0.8 per cent over the year.

Inflation reached 1.7 per cent during 2014, which means that Canberra prices remained steady in real terms, while Perth and Darwin prices went backwards.
