The number of loan defaults is increasing in the cities of Melbourne and Sydney. The main reason for the increasing number of defaults is the reluctance by the non-bank lenders to extend the credit.

The report further stated that it might also take over 200 millimetres of rain over one or two days. Sydney’s dams are about 48 percent full and are down by 10 billion litres over the past week. If the city’s desalination plant would not have produced 250 million litres the weekly drop of 0.4 percent would have been more.

The multicultural Carnegie and coastal Cheltenham in the southeast are also among the top five at McGrath, along with Watsonia in the north and the upcoming Upway in the craggy east.
