Jewel in crown of our region

THE Gympie region continues to be a beacon to many families looking for a tree change with affordable housing.

Curra in particular is a popular destination and its rising median house price reflects that popularity.

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland estimates that the median cost of a property in that rural residential community just north of Gympie has recently climbed more than 35% in three months. This figure may be distorted by one or two expensive transactions but the fact remains that there is plenty of real estate activity there.

And why wouldn't there be? Curra offers country living a hop, skip and a jump from the conveniences of a thriving regional city.

Like the Gympie region itself Curra offers the best of both worlds at a cost families can still afford.

It's only a matter of time until the rest of the country realises this.
