Hot pocket to watch in prop­erty mar­ket

Sold On Sunshine Coast - - Suburb Profile | Bli Bli -

NAMED af­ter the term Bil­lai bil­lai which is an Abo­rig­i­nal word for swamp oak, Bli Bli has a wealth of his­tory, yet is still ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a resur­gence in in­fras­truc­ture as well as new res­i­den­tial build­ings.

In a cen­tral lo­ca­tion be­tween the river and ocean, it is an ideal lo­ca­tion close to both Ma­roochy­dore and Nam­bour. It is also sit­u­ated within close prox­im­ity to the Sun­shine Coast Air­port and the beaches of Ma­roochy North Shore.

Set within the bound­ary of a graz­ing lease, which once had an area of 647ha, Bli Bli be­gan to take shape in 1862, when a home­stead was first erected by John West­away.

To­day the Bli Bli re­gion is a grow­ing river­front com­mu­nity with a mix of di­verse hous­ing styles and sit­u­a­tions.

Rang­ing from acreage lots to mas­ter-planned com­mu­ni­ties and re­tire­ment vil­lages, not only is this a safe place to live, but also highly re­garded with the ever in­creas­ing num­ber of lo­cal res­i­dents.

Bli Bli con­tin­ues as an emerg­ing force in the Sun­shine Coast prop­erty mar­ket. Fol­low­ing out­stand­ing growth of 9.7% in 2015, the hous­ing mar­ket has con­tin­ued to sky rocket and sig­nif­i­cant in­fras­truc­ture growth in the Bli Bli precinct will en­sure this is one of the hot pock­ets to watch in 2017.

Three of the main tourist at­trac­tions of the Sun­shine Coast can be found here, with each one at­tract­ing tourists to the re­gion.

Known for the Ma­roochy River Wet­lands Sanc­tu­ary Re­serve and board­walk as well as the fa­mous Bli Bli Cas­tle, it is also home to Aqua Park, a pop­u­lar venue of­fer­ing a range of wa­ter sports in­clud­ing wake board­ing and ca­ble ski­ing. The in­tro­duc­tion of the in­flat­able wa­ter park, con­tin­ues to draw crowds and it’s al­ways a hit with fam­i­lies, es­pe­cially dur­ing the warmer months.

A range of shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties are avail­able with more re­tail and com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ments un­der con­struc­tion, form­ing a bond be­tween the town­ship and giv­ing the lo­cals more choices to shop and spend within the re­gion.

In re­cent years, Bli Bli has wel­comed with the multi-mil­lion-dol­lar rede­vel­op­ment of the Supa IGA and River Mar­kets Shop­ping Cen­tre.

As well as res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial up­grades, a sport­ing ground and a new catholic school of­fer­ing from Prep to Year 12 is in­cluded as part of the mas­ter-planned com­mu­nity.

The res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity of Park­lakes is just one of the ma­jor suc­cess sto­ries com­ing out of Bli Bli within re­cent years.

This pic­turesque mas­ter-planned res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity of­fers res­i­dents stun­ning views all the way to Mt Coolum.

With the goal to con­nect res­i­dents with na­ture in a quiet lo­ca­tion, while re­main­ing within easy reach of ameni­ties that the Coast has to of­fer, Park­land of­fers ac­com­mo­da­tion for the first home buyer, grow­ing fam­ily as well as baby boomers.

Ef­fort­lessly blend­ing the old with the new, and lo­cals with tourists, Bli Bli of­fers it all.

With the small com­mu­nity boom­ing with res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial up­grades, Bli Bli is def­i­nitely one to watch.
