This new interactive map reveals the top three birthplaces for immigrants in cities and suburbs across Australia. The map where Australia’s immigrants were born was created just last month by SBS
The article actually contains a series of maps, one showing the country as a whole, a number of maps covering the major cities and another map of the whole country which excludes immigrants from England and New Zealand. In order to get the Irish population you need to use the second map.
Bondi Junction’s population is 3.9 per cent Irish – making up 338, or one in every 25, of the suburb’s 8661 residents.
In Melbourne, again taking the English and New Zealanders out, the Irish dominate in St Kilda with 2.6 per cent, and neighbouring Elwood with
1.3 per cent.
In Perth, Irish born people dominate in West Leederville (3.5 per cent), Perth city centre (3.4 per cent), Leederville (3.2 per cent), Meelon (3.1 per cent), Scarborough (2.1 per cent), Beldon (1.9 per cent) and Karrakup (1.6 per cent).
