Northern Territory region Palmerston-South finished second with a population growth rate of 92 per cent and $141.4 million worth of new dwelling approvals.

Last year’s top hotspot – Crace – was third, with the ACT suburb recording a 57 per cent population growth and $154.9 million in new dwelling approvals.

ACT’s Casey and Victoria’s Cranbourne East rounded out the top five, with population growth rates of 32.4 per cent and 24.1 per cent respectively, and with $115.9 million and $294.7 million in new dwelling approvals.
