Capital city areas comprise four of the top five regions nationally for investor concentrations, with Darwin topping the list at 42.9 percent of all dwellings owned by investors.

The Gold Coast shows the second highest ranking for investment concentration nationally, with 32.8 percent of dwellings owned by investors.

 Inner capital city apartment markets dominate investor preferences, according to CoreLogic, followed by lifestyle, regional and mining locations.

The only capital city missing from the top 20 list nationally is Hobart (ranked 31 nationally) where investors comprised 18.3 percent of all dwellings.

Across the regional markets, the highest investment concentrations were generally located in the major regional centres associated with either lifestyle factors such as tourism and holiday homes, or locations more aligned with the mining and resources sector.
