Why Regional Queensland is the Ultimate Investment Destination

  • What's next? Regional Queensland stands out as an unparalleled investment destination, delivering high rental returns, capital growth, and a stable economic environment, making it the ultimate choice for investors. Explore the lucrative opportunities in regional Queensland today.

With strong and diverse economies, impressive rental returns, and affordable prices, regional Queensland towns are quickly becoming the top choice for savvy investors seeking high-reward opportunities without compromise.

CoreLogic's May Home Value Index showed the median combined regional dwelling price rose by 0.8% for the month and 2.1% for the quarter, while capital city prices saw more modest rises of 0.6 and 1.7% respectively.

"We've been seeing this gradually taking shape where the regional markets are once again starting to out-perform the capital cities," CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless said. He said this was more to do with capital city markets slowing, rather than regional markets accelerating.

Shift to Regional Living

Mr Lawless said despite a trend of workers going back to capital city offices, people were still keen to live in regional areas where they could commute two or three days a week.

"There's still this legacy where some industries have seen a structural change where their workers will probably spend more time working away from the office," he said. "It does open up a lot of those regional markets that are in that sweet spot of commutability."

Regional Queensland Hotspot

In regional Queensland, increasingly diverse economies are delivering the perfect blend of rental income and capital growth for investors.

One standout hotspot is Glen Eden in the Gladstone region, where the median house price is just $400,000. Glen Eden boasts:

  • Annual rental yield of 6%

  • Tight vacancy rate of 1.2% which is expected to tighten

  • Projected 60% population boom over the next two decades

“The region is undertaking billions of dollars in major infrastructure projects, including transport, defence, resources, and energy,” Graham says, also highlighting the recent revitalisation of the town centre.

Regional Queensland emerges as the premier investment destination, providing outstanding rental returns, substantial capital growth, and a robust economic environment. For investors seeking unparalleled opportunities, it stands as the definitive choice.
