The beach holds an iconic status in our culture. Coastal regions have long been a favourite place for Australians to take their holidays and relax. More recently, researchers have identified an increasing tendency for people to live near the coast.

For an analysis of who in the population is moving to the coastal regions, refer to the ABS publication Australian Social Trends 2004 (ABS cat. no. 4102.0) feature article Seachange - new coastal residents
The analysis is based on the 2001 Census of Population and Housing and examines the characteristics of people who moved to a high growth coastal region during the year before the 2001 census.
