Northern Territory - Population 2022
In March 2018, there were just over 8 million people living in New South Wales, which is less than half of them. By 2019, the number is predicted to exceed 8 million, representing a 1.4 percent rise over prior years. The capital of NSW (New South Wales) is Sydney, which is also the world’s most populous city. The greater Sydney region has a population of about 5 million people, and it continues to increase every year. Sydney is home to little under two-thirds of New South Wales’ population!
