Change and Continuity in Peri-Urban Australia: Peri-urban Case Study South East Queensland

This is the third in a series of four monographs investigating peri-urban issues throughout Australia. This monograph examines the peri-urbanisation that has occurred in the South East Queensland (SEQ) region, the fastest growing metropolitan region in Australia. It has investigated the structural and functional aspects of peri-urbanisation that has characterised a growth corridor to the west of the Brisbane – Ipswich metropolitan area towards the regional centre of Toowoomba. The monograph is part of the Peri-urban Continuity and Change project which has been funded by Land and Water Australia (LWA) and the (former) Department of Environment and Heritage (DEH). The principal aims of the project have been to identify the nature and extent of contemporary peri-urban Australia and the likely future patterns of socio-economic, cultural and particularly, natural resource
developments in peri-urban landscapes.
