Central & West Queensland property market

Following general Australian property market trends, Central and West Queensland has seen a slight cooling in its housing market, however far less pronounced than more urban areas.

As a general trend, regional Queensland is holding its own, particularly areas such as Warwick and Boonah, which have seen an influx in both population and housing prices. Modest housing prices have allowed first home buyers an available option, and investors have enjoyed low-risk ventures with opportunistic returns.

What's it like living in Central & West Queensland?

Although remote, Central and Western Queensland have a lot to offer. From tight communities to natural beauty, history and even pre-history the region encompasses the eastern extent of the Simpson Desert, Australia's red centre, as well as the Diamantina River, which scales a circular perimeter theorised to be the result of a 300 million-year-old impact crater.

Major towns in the region include Longreach, Blackall, Betoota, Barcaldine and Winton, which packs in a lot of character for a region with a relatively small population. Winton was where the famous Poet Banjo Patterson wrote Waltzing Matilda, with a museum dedicated to him. Another museum exists for Australia's airline Qantas, which was also born in the region, and if that's not enough, Winton is rich in opals and fossils, with the world's only fossilised evidence of a dinosaur stampede.

Another rarity in the ancient land is the presence of coal in the area, which is a significant driver of the local economy. The Central Railway line services the area, running from the coast roughly along the Tropic of Capricorn and transports passengers, livestock, and minerals too and from the nation's centre.
