VICTORIA


TOP AVERAGE WAGE AND SALARY INCOME REGIONS, 2006-07

The SLAs with the highest average Wage and salary incomes in Melbourne SD were located in areas around Port Philip Bay (incorporating the suburbs of Brighton, Port Melbourne and Albert Park) and the eastern suburbs of Prahran, Kew and Malvern.

Outside of Melbourne SD, high average Wage and salary incomes were recorded for two SLAs within the Macedon Ranges district, north-east of the capital. This region offers a semi-rural lifestyle close to Melbourne, with many residents commuting to the city for work. Newtown is an inner residential suburb of Geelong, which is the largest provincial centre in Victoria and a manufacturing, transportation and service hub. The SLA of Traralgon is located in the state's Latrobe Valley, east of Melbourne, and is the home of most of the state's power generation facilities and a paper mill.
