World dis­cov­ers a par­adise boom­ing

Sold On Sunshine Coast - - Welcome -

THE Sun­shine Coast has long held a se­cret of be­ing a won­der­ful place to live, work and play.

Now the world is beat­ing a path to its door. It has been iden­ti­fied as one of the fastest grow­ing precincts in South­east Queens­land, with some ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture projects well un­der way.

Both the Na­tional Aus­tralia Bank and a re­cent BIS Schrap­nel Re­port iden­ti­fied the Sun­shine Coast as one of the best prop­erty mar­kets in the coun­try at the present time.

It is one of Aus­tralia’s largest re­gional economies, with the re­gion rid­ing a wave of un­prece­dented in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment across all sec­tors in­clud­ing health, ed­u­ca­tion, trans­port and tourism to­talling $18 bil­lion.

The re­cent open­ing of the $1.8 bil­lion Sun­shine Coast Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal was Aus­tralia’s first new – not re­place­ment – ter­tiary, teach­ing hos­pi­tal in more than 25 years.

Then there is the emerg­ing Maroochydore CBD, Aus­tralia’s only greenfield cen­tral busi­ness district and which cov­ers 53 hectares in Maroochydore.

Other game-chang­ers in­clude the ex­pan­sion of the Sun­shine Coast Air­port to in­ter­na­tional stan­dard and the re­cently com­pleted ma­jor ex­pan­sion of the Uni­ver­sity of the Sun­shine Coast.
