Most Tasmanians own older cars
Flinders Island residents drive some of Australia’s oldest cars, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
More than three in every four registered motor vehicles on the island are over 10 years old – the highest proportion of any region in Australia.
In fact, of the ten Local Government Areas with the highest proportion of older cars, six are located in Tasmania. Southern Midlands, Tasman, King Island, Derwent Valley and Central Highlands all have more than 64% of their registered motor vehicles over 10 years of age.
The above vehicle data are just part of many economic, social and environmental statistical online profiles updated today for over 2000 regions across Australia. This includes 29 local government areas in Tasmania.
The Google Maps interface makes finding regions a cinch. To get started, just click on the ‘National Regional Profile’ link on the ABS website, www.abs.gov.au.
