Melbourne’s population is tipped to grow 28 per cent faster than Sydney’s over the next six years, according to McCrindle Research. Both cities are tipped to have a population of around six million in mid-2026, but Melbourne’s population will pass Sydney’s by the end of that year. Mark McCrindle of McCrindle Research says Melbourne’s rising population will help to boost its national political power, as well as helping it to attract more companies, along with sporting and cultural events.
