Surprising results in Australian international settlement patterns

Sun, sand and surf are the number one attraction for international arrivals, with some areas attracting more interest with some groups than others.

Last year’s census results from the ABS reveal people from the Americas, such as the US, Canada and Brazil, prefer Sydney’s Northern Beaches while Irish and French arrivals are more likely to be found around the eastern suburbs.

In Sydney’s west, the ABS reveals 45 percent of people in Harris Park were born in India, while Cabramatta is still home to Australia’s highest number of Vietnamese-born residents.

Beyond the Emerald City, the Gold Coast has proven popular with New Zealanders whereas Dallas in outer Melbourne is the suburb of choice for a higher proportion of people born in Turkey. 

Perth is proving popular with Brits, with many choosing the beachside suburb of Mindarie while more Scots are calling the suburb of Kinross home. And you’re more likely to find people born in Zimbabwe In the outer Perth suburb of Wellard.

Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee, says the results are revealing.

“It’s a fascinating look at the diverse demographics of Australia,” she says. “While most new arrivals to Australia come to Sydney first, it’s not then possible to easily find out where they decide to settle. The Census provides us with a deeper understanding into settlement patterns around the country.”

An Australian winemaker has taken out the top prize for sparkling wine at the International Wine Challenge, the first time a local winemaker has done so. It marks just the second time in the competition’s 40-year history that the award has gone to a winemaker outside France’s Champagne region.

Tasmanian-based House of Arras’ chief winemaker, Ed Carr, was presented with the award for Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at a special ceremony in London earlier this week.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be named this year’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year. It’s a challenge to describe the feeling, but I’m proud to be recognised amongst my peers for such a significant international award,” Mr Carr said.

The IWC is considered one of the world’s most rigorous and impartial wine competitions. This year, France topped the medal tally with 72 gold, 394 silver and 455 bronze medals – extending their haul by 84 more wins than last year.  

The 40-year-old competition is considered one of the most influential events in the winemaking calendar.

Australian winemakers took out second place, with 54 gold, 250 silver and 154 bronze medals. Australia also won 19 trophies, 10 of which went to South Australia.

House of Arras also received the Australian Sparkling Trophy for its 2014 House of Arras Blanc de Blancs, as well as two gold and six silver medals.

Tasmania’s cool climate and soil make it ideal for producing world-class sparkling wine says Ed Carr (pictured).

Mr Carr said Tasmania’s cool climate and terroir were equal to the world’s best sparkling wine regions. The wins follow a strong showing this year at Australia’s National Wine Show and the Decanter World Wine Awards, where House of Arras also collected awards.

“2024 has been an outstanding year on the awards front, and I’m honoured to add this recent recognition from the International Wine Challenge to the mantle,” he said.
