Note: The migration flows depicted above are historical and do not represent future or forecast migration flows or subsequent council boundary changes. The arrows represent migration flows to the area as a whole and do not indicate an origin or destination for any specific localities within the area. Overseas flow shows overseas arrivals based on answers to the census question "where did the person usually live 5-years ago" and .id estimates of international out-migration.
The variety of periods of settlement in the City mean that various suburbs are at quite different periods in the suburb lifecycle. In the older areas such as Medina and Calista, the original settlers have passed on, resulting in a diversity of age groups. Orelia has experienced new residential development in the last ten years resulting in a regeneration of the area. Significant levels of new residential development are expected over the forecast period in areas along the railway to Mandurah. This includes Wellard, Leda, Casuarina, Anketell and Wandi.
As described above, different areas within the City of Kwinana have slightly different functions based on both era of development and amount of new housing opportunities. Calista-Medina is expected to attract some younger families, while losing some young adults leaving home. Leda and Orelia are expected to continue to attract families in their development phase. New development areas such as Wellard and Wandi are expected to attract large number of young families with children. Parmelia-Kwinana Town Centre by contrast is expected to attract young adults in their teens and twenties in similar fashion to an inner city area. The variety of function and role of the small areas in the City of Kwinana means that population outcomes differ significantly across the LGA.
