Australia’s population milestone is big news and what a turnaround! The country has been growing its economy as well as welcoming tourists and migrant workers into the country.

And its no wonder that the population reached such a milestone! Its not directly possible to identify who the 24 millionth person is if he is a newborn or a migrant worker either way its good news for Australia.

Quoted words from Alex Hawke and Prime Minister Turnbull:

“As the population strikes 24 million it’s a good time to reflect on our country’s economic, cultural and social strengths,” Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, Alex Hawke, said on Monday.

“In the words of Prime Minister Turnbull, there has never been a more exciting time to be an Australian and 24 million people agree.”
