Projected population and dwelling data helps support evidence based decision making on the Sunshine Coast. Council, the business sector and the community use this information to contribute to the planning and delivery of services to meet the needs of our growing community.

In June 2021, the total population on the Sunshine Coast was 346,648 people. Over the following twenty-five years to 2046 it is projected up to 200,000 additional people will settle on the coast. These projected figures would see our population reach over 540,000 residents by 2046.
