skynews_img_1200_745

Australia’s population is set to tick over to 24 million people in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The milestone will put Australia level with the Chinese city Shanghai, which manages to accommodate over 24 million people in a thousandth of the space.

The figures are based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics population growth clock, which works off 12-monthly population estimates. Based on these rates Australia will reach a population of 25 million in 2018 and 50 million in 2086.

By then the global population will have reached 10.6 billion.
