BREAKING: SPP calls for national vote on population. Subscribe to eNewsletter for updates.


You can't grow forever in a finite world. Australians deserve a democratic choice on the critical issue that affects everyone and everything - population.

If you support a stable, sustainable, open and tolerant Australia, please read on.


SPP is not a single issue party. Population policy affects everything, from the environment to traffic congestion to housing affordability.

We have a broad range of policies, and support a sustainable Australia incorporating:

  • Improved housing affordability
  • Preventative healthcare
  • Enhanced education and training
  • Local community planning
  • Public ownership of essential assets, particularly natural monopolies
  • Transparent political donations
  • Australian ownership of land
  • Climate change mitigation
  • Inhanced foreign aid for female education and voluntary family planning
  • Reduced population growth, locally and globally
  • ...amongst other things.


From 19 million in 2000, Australia has already grown to more than 23 million today, and under Liberal, Labor and Greens policies, we are on track to double to 40 million by 2050. At the current growth rate, we could hit 100 million this century – that's within the lifetime of a child born today.

This rapid population growth is already destroying Australia's environment and quality of life.

The Sustainable Population Party advocates significantly slowing population growth from the current record growth of over 400,000 per annum (a new Canberra!). From 23 million today, we should aim to stabilise at around 26 million by 2050, not 40 million and rising.

National research confirms that over 70 percent of Australians reject the Liberal / Labor / Greens 'big Australia' policy outcome of around 40 million by 2050.

Against the will of the people, population growth has largely been driven by big business donating to politicians, then demanding more customers and cheaper (pre-trained) labour for their large-scale enterprises, like high-rise developments, toll roads and supermarkets.

SPP is not anti-immigration. We are a low-immigration, pro-immigrant party and have proudly welcomed migrants from every inhabited continent on Earth as members of SPP.

Importantly, population is also a global issue. Australia should lead by example, yet also provide support to other countries experiencing rapid population growth, so as to help them stabilise their populations, and thus help stabilise global population.
