Sym­pa­thy for those who don’t live here

The Gympie Times - - YOUR SAY - OUR VIEW ARTHUR.GORRIE arthur.gorrie@gympi­etimes.com

FROM sport­ing le­gends such as Johnathan Thurston to busi­ness­man and en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Don Parry, it seems the world is beat­ing a path to the Gympie re­gion.

And as every­one my age has been able to ob­serve over the years, when peo­ple start to no­tice a place, real es­tate booms of­ten fol­low.

Many be­lieve this is what we are start­ing to see in Gympie.

Thurston, the man who saved Queens­land in more than one State of Ori­gin se­ries, will soon be vis­it­ing Gympie, the city that saved Queens­land from bank­ruptcy.

His visit, en­gi­neered largely by The Gympie Times, will hap­pen on De­cem­ber 10.

And Mr Parry will preach his unique doc­trine of prof­its through en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity at Gunabul Homestead on Thurs­day, thanks to the Gympie Cham­ber of Com­merce.

Mr Parry grew up on the Sun­shine Coast and is among the thou­sands who have moved to the Gympie re­gion as places like Bris­bane and the Sun­shine Coast be­come just too un­bear­ably crowded.

The Courier-Mail re­ports Queens­land is tipped to lead Aus­tralia for cap­i­tal gain on prop­erty.

And, in Queens­land, Gympie (now with a vastly im­proved high­way link to the south) must be a bet­ter bet than most.
