Why Work in the Magical South Burnett                      

Why not enjoy a new quality of life in regional Queensland. Here at CTC we would like to tap into the public's growing awareness of the lifestyle benefits offered by regional centres such as Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai and Murgon (only 2 hours drive from Brisbane and the Sunshine or Fraser Coasts) as great places to live, work and invest. We have provided below a small sample of information and links to showcase to South East Queensland (Brisbane, Sunshine & Gold Coast) residents the attraction of a regional lifestyle and demonstrate that it no longer requires a sacrifice in terms of access to quality services, infrastructure and job opportunities.

Some of the benefits of living and working in the South Burnett:

  • New Location, New Life
  • More Room, Less Mortgage - Housing costs dramaticlly lower than the capital cities
  • Goodbye Peak Hour

Careers - There are excellent career prospects in each of the four major communities in the South Burnett and business opportunities for individuals and families who are looking to take the next step, pursue a change or start their own business.

Family Life - A “new town, new life” in the South Burnett means a great lifestyle, fantastic housing and a welcoming and safe community in which to raise your family. It means less time commuting, working and stressing, and more time for you and your family.
