I had a look at two data series: the percentage of persons in Kew who were born outside Australia, and the percentage of persons in Kew who spoke a language at home other than English. By both measures, Kew has become more diverse over the past decade, as I suspect most Australian suburbs have. Driving this trend is the doubling in Kew's population that were born in China. I haven't yet noticed this trend becoming apparent at the Hotel Kew though.
|% born outside Australia||26.5||26.8||28.8|
|% language spoken at home other than English||19.8||21.4||23.9|
