Gympie, Regional Queensland
Gympie has been one of the state’s best performers over the last four years. It offers affordability and lifestyle, appealing traits that have yet to be impacted by over-building.
A small regional city and administrative centre for the Wide Bay Burnett region, Gympie benefits from its proximity to the rising Sunshine Coast economy and the improved highway links between the two locations.
Recent upgrades to the Bruce Highway have made the Sunshine Coast within commuting distance of Gympie, providing Gympie residents with access to more job opportunities.
With Gympie house prices being around half those of many Sunshine Coast suburbs, there is good potential for new investors and other buyers on a budget. Rental yields are relatively high and vacancies are low.
There are also major infrastructure projects earmarked for the region, including a $2 billion solar farm. If all are successful, Gympie’s potential for investment would be greatly enhanced.
