89% of Australians live in urban areas, and the annual population growth of 2.1% is nearly double the world's population growth of 1.1%. Granted, my sources, are wikipedia...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Australia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_growth

Gold Coast in particular reminds me of Miami, where a condo boom made the skyline dramatically larger, while many of them are just people's vacation homes (or, unfortunately in Miami's case, empty).

22 million on the world stage seems small, but our cities like Sydney (nearing 5 million), Melbourne (over 4 million), Brisbane (over 2 million) are 'big' enough cities and in the Gold Coast's case (515,000) - this smaller city has a huge tourist market, which needs hotel rooms etc.

I think that's because in Dubai, it's only skyscrapers with nothing in between. (I know there is an old part, but that's not where the big towers stand). Here is a good mix of skyscrapers, highrises and lowrises. Maybe Dubai just needs time.
