The 200 Km City: Brisbane, The Gold Coast, And Sunshine Coast
AbstractSince the 1970s, several Southeast Queensland coastal towns in areas marketed as the 'Gold Coast' and the 'Sunshine Coast' have merged with each other and joined with Brisbane to become one of the world's longest urban coastal strips. The population of this 200 km long city is fast approaching three million. This urban pattern reflects the preferences of many Australians about where and in what type of housing they would like to live. The unplanned nature of this growth raises several policy challenges relating to resource use and traffic congestion. Copyright 2009 The Author.
