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.

The South Burnett has numerous excellent independent and public schools and an abundance of preschools and day-care centres. Sporting facilities are also well-covered in the South Burnett, with a large variety of clubs and groups providing recreation for the entire family.

Entertainment activities are plentiful, with a cinema, galleries, museums, festivals, concerts and a steady stream of events covering music, food, art and much more. To access more information, visit SouthBurnett.com.au.

Lifestyle - Residing in a regional town has many of the benefits of a capital city without the hassles. What we’re talking about is not a sea change, but a TREE CHANGE.

A move to the South Burnett is a move to a region with less traffic, a great lifestyle, a welcoming and safe community, numerous fantastic cafes and restaurants and a beautiful, bigger home with a smaller mortgage to raise your family. The South Burnett also has beautiful yet diverse natural surroundings from mountainous ranges to stunning lakes, wine regions and dramatic valleys.

Housing - One of the great benefits of living in the South Burnett is that real estate prices are dramatically lower than in South East Queensland. This means South Burnett residents can enjoy a bigger and better home for their money.

The affordable housing in the South Burnett also makes them an attractive proposition for property investors to leverage the high demand for rental properties in many of the towns.
