This FACT indicates the total number of current official festivals and events that will be occurring over the next year (March 2017 - March 2018) according to each Australian state's tourism and events website. Please note that the figures given in this data do not represent all possible festival/events that will occur, but show only festivals or events that have been registered with each respective tourism commission as of March 2018.
These events attract both domestic and international tourism, promote cultural diversity and economic activity, and increase the vibrancy and social scorecard of a city. The state with the most registered festival and events (between March 2018-2019) is the ACT, with 335. The state with the least is the NT, with a comparatively small 50 registered events planned for the coming year.
This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Greek at home. In the middle of the 20th century, thousands of Greeks immigrated into Australia as part of the Australian Government “Populate or Perish” incentive. Most Greek immigrants settled in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney as they seemed like the best places to find work. During this time, the Greeks influenced a large cultural change in Australian cities with the growth of Greek cuisine and community clubs in each city. This data was collected for the 2016 ABS Census. The city with highest number is Melbourne at 107,386. The city with the lowest number is Hobart at 1,020.

How frequently do people change their place of residence within the same state or territory? This FACT indicates the percentage of people within their greater city area that have moved from a residency within their state or territory, during the 5 years until 2016. Moving can often be tied to job opportunities or people moving from regions to their state capital. This FACT could be impacted by housing prices and cost of living, population growth or family formation. The city with the highest percent of residents that have moved within the same state or territory is Brisbane at 27.9 percent. The lowest is Canberra at 19.1 percent.
Australia has a reputation for vicious shark attacks, and sharks are oft-cited natural preditors for visitors and locals alike. While Australia does have the second highest number of recorded shark attack cases from 1580-2013 (510 reported cases, after the United States, with a total of 1022 as of February 2013) (International Shark Attack File, January 2014), many of the attacks occur in deep waters and with surfboard riders, who wear wetsuits and therefore look similar to sharks' usual prey. An unprovoked attack is considered one which is initiated by the shark, and without human provocation.
This FACT indicates the percentage of persons that have escaped a shark attack unharmed in each Australian state and territory, from 1791 to 2013.
