SQM sees rental shortages by 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Shortages 

SQM Research reported that vacancy rates fell across most capital cities in August.

The national vacancy rate of 2.2 per cent was marginally lower than the 2.3 per cent seen at the same time in the prior year. 

Melbourne (1.7 per cent) and Hobart (0.4 per cent) in particular are seeing sharp increases in asking rents, while the vacancy rate in Adelaide was down to just 1.6 per cent from 1.9 per cent a year earlier.

In fact, Hobart has the lowest vacancy rate on record for any capital city, and both rents and prices are exploding higher.  


Vacancy rates ticked down from July in Brisbane (3.1 per cent) and Perth (4.6 per cent) in August.

The rental market Perth needs to improve for landlords - median asking rents are some 34 per cent lower than at their peak. 

Meanwhile Darwin has recorded seven consecutive declines in its vacancy rate, suggesting that the rental downturn is finally over in the Northern Territory. 

Smoothing the last 6 months of figures suggests that the rental market is not deteriorating significantly in most capital cities.

South-East Oz Part 2: NSW Riverina sunshinecoastbirds

Superb Parrot
We had a Pink Cockatoo in the camping ground on our last morning at Lake Cargelligo (see following post) and two more at the treatment works, where Swamp Harrier and Spotted Harrier also showed. We headed south through the NSW Riverina to the rice town of Leeton, known as a birding hotspot, for a 2-night stay at the showgrounds.

Superb Parrot pair
It wasn't long before the first Superb Parrots flew overhead and I was soon enjoying close encounters with several birds of this aptly named species on the well-wooded golf course adjoining the showgrounds.

By Sonia Kohlbacher Anti-Adani protesters are preparing for a week-long demonstration against the Indian mining giant in an attempt to stop initial works going ahead on its Carmichael coal mine.

Tycoon Gautam Adani last month announced the company would break ground on the $16.5 billion central Queensland mine in October.

Demonstrators from the Frontline Action on Coal and Reef Defenders groups were undergoing training on Saturday and Sunday ahead of a planned week-long protest kicking off at Yasso Point in Bowen on Sunday night.

Whitsunday tourism operator and farmer Paul Jukes will be among the protesters.

He said governments were prioritising the international mining behemoth over thousands of north Queensland business owners who relied on the Great Barrier Reef.

Deloitte Access Economics report released in June put the value of the Great Barrier Reef at $56 billion, more than twice that of t...

New government plans remove protections for marine life "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

The Federal Governments new plans for 44 marine parks have left conservationist groups outraged.

Under the Governments proposed developments, more areas will be opened for commercial fishing and protection zones will be downgraded to allow for more trawling operations.

Environmentalist Michelle Grady says these proposed changes are completely contrary to public consultation and the removal of our current marine protections would constitute world first.

The Government says that these allegations are false and that these new plans have considered both biodiversity and local industries.
