ABC Four Corners had a fascinating show on the other day titled : Big Australia: Are We Ready?

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, whether you agree or disagree with a 'big Australia' - the most recent facts from the Australian Bureau of statistics (ABS), show that Australia's population could reach up to 70 million people by 2101!
