Top 20 places to invest in Australia
Australia’s investment hot spots have been revealed, with factors including infrastructure spending, average rental yields, population growth, house prices and lifestyle helping decide where the money is going.
Queensland took the top two spots in the top 20 with Woolloongabba first, thanks to its location near the new Olympic stadium, and the Gold Coast’s top lifestyle choice Burleigh Heads in second.
But while the sunshine state topped the list, NSW dominated the top 20, and Victoria claimed three spots in the top 10.
ME Bank commissioned the research from Ethos Urban, which showed new transport infrastructure is playing a significant role in creating investment opportunities.

Ethos Urban consulting demographer Chris McNeil said transport, attractiveness for renters, the town centre and potential for new developments weighed heavily in the criteria.
“Woolloongabba, for example, is already serviced by two train stations, and the new Cross City Rail Project will provide a line running directly under the suburb, increasing connectivity and changing the way people use the area,” he said.
“This will only be bolstered in the coming years as Brisbane prepares its infrastructure for the 2032 Olympics.
“Add to this the exciting atmosphere in Logan Street, its rapid population growth and steady house price growth, and it does offer a unique opportunity for those looking to invest in the residential property market.”
ME’s list of best places to invest captured all levels of investment, from apartment-focused buying in Five Dock, South Melbourne or Claremont to larger freestanding home opportunities in up-and-coming suburbs such as Yanchep and Preston.
Metro connections and price growth were the biggest drivers of investment in NSW, while Victoria added on the eclectic atmosphere of places such as North Melbourne.
In Western Australia, the wine country and beaches made suitable investments, particularly in Ellenbrook with its masterplan estate, and Yanchep gained traction from a rail extension.
While residential property prices are expected to increase 25 per cent for houses and 14 per cent this year, they are about to moderate.
The latest prediction for property prices shows houses will increase 6 per cent next year before dropping by 11 per cent while units will almost hold steady with an increase by 9 per cent and drop by 7 per cent in 2023.

The Sunshine Coast property and rental markets continued their super-strong run of results over the December quarter, according to the latest official data from the REIQ.
Indeed, the region’s house market recorded median price growth of 8.9% over the quarter and finished the year up 7.7% compared to the year before.
The Sunshine Coast median house price is now $630,000, according to the latest Queensland Market Monitor (QMM).
The region’s unit market is experiencing robust market conditions as well, with median price growth of 8% over the year ending December.
Vacant land sales were also in hot demand from buyers last year, up more than 20% over the year, as first home buyers, investors and upgraders competed to secure their own slice of coastal land.
There is no question that the Sunshine Coast’s housing market continues to be the toast of the State with strong upward pressure on prices being recorded – and plenty more growth to come as well.
Over the December quarter, the median house price for the Sunshine Coast LGA increased a staggering 8.9% to $675,000 and was 7.7% higher over the year.
According to SQM Research, total property listings on the Sunshine Coast are at their lowest level for more than a decade.
This shortage of stock is clearly playing its part in driving buyer activity and prices with a 23% increase in house sales on the coast over the year.
Investors have started to make a return to the coast market as well, partly driven by the region’s very strong rental market.
The Sunshine Coast has always had a stellar unit, townhouse, and duplex market, courtesy of its myriad desirable locations including ocean, river and hinterland views stretching from Caloundra to Noosa.
This is one of the reasons why the coat’s unit sector has continued to show price growth when other regional locations have recorded quite the opposite over recent years.
This latest quarter is no exception, with the Sunshine Coast median unit price posting a median price increase of 2.2% and impressive growth of 8% over the year ending December, according to the QMM.
The volume of unit sales on the Sunshine Coast reduced over the past year, but this is perhaps a reflection of the low stock levels available more than anything else.
Indeed, according to SQM Research, there were fewer than 1,800 units for sale on the coast in February – the lowest number since at least 2010.
The Sunshine Coast has the lowest number of rental vacancies of any major region across the State.
The region posted a vacancy rate of just 0.4% in December but within its boundaries some areas, such as Caloundra, Maroochydore, and Noosa, reported a vacancy rate of just 0.3%.
According to SQM Research, the number of vacancies is the lowest of all publicly available data that goes back to 2005.
The Sunshine Coast has welcomed a number of new residents over the past year, with more people able to work remotely as well as seeking a lifestyle change, which the coast offers in comparatively affordable spades.
Unsurprisingly, weekly rents are increasing off the back of the undersupply of rental property.
The median weekly rent of a two-bedroom unit on the Sunshine Coast increased 7.9% to $410 between December last year and the year before.
The median weekly rent for a three-bedroom house grew by 6.5% to $490 over the same period.
Did you know that about $26 billion in new loan commitments were recorded around the nation in December last year?
That was a staggering increase of more than 30% compared to the same month the year before!
The thing is the value of potential loans that are still waiting to be processed would have added billions of dollars more to the total that month – and for every month before and since.
That’s because there is a home loan gridlock under way that, just like a frustrating highway traffic jam, is not likely to start moving again soon.
Of course, the go-slow on loans has been happening for a while now and pretty much started when the government incentivised millions of people to go out and spend on property – new or old – to help keep the economy afloat during the pandemic.
And spend we are trying to do, with loans to owner occupiers and first home buyers at record highs, with investors roaring back to life now, too.
Indeed, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the latest lending indicators make for quite astonishing reading with:
- The value of new owner occupier home loan commitments rising 8.7% to $19.9 billion in December 2020 – 38.9% higher than December 2019.
- Loan commitments for existing dwellings accounted for 53% of December’s rise in owner occupier housing loan commitments, while construction of new dwellings accounted for 32%.
- The value of construction loan commitments grew 17.1% in December, more than doubling since the June implementation of the HomeBuilder grant.
- Plus, in December, the number of owner occupier first home buyer loan commitments rose 9.3% to reach 15,205 (seasonally adjusted) – a 56.6% rise since December 2019.
On top of that, the once-in-a-generation interest rates that are currently on offer is motivating hordes of people to refinance, which is adding to the wait-times for anyone wanting to do anything with property finance.
It’s clear the desire to buy a property is there, but at the moment, the ability to get the deal done in any sort of reasonable timeframe seems to have disappeared.
Now, I’m not saying that home loan applications are not being processed because they are.
It’s just that borrowers need to have a bit more patience than before, because the days of home loan approvals taking a week or two are gone – for the time being anyway.
Perhaps lenders could hire some more staff, in a time of high employment let’s not forget, so that the people who want to do their bit for the economy recovery by buying real estate can actually do so?
Until then, those of us in the business of strategic property buying will work with what we’ve got – knowing that the good times appear to only just be beginning.
Did you know that at the end of December nearly 17,000 people had applied for the HomeBuilder scheme in Queensland?
The scheme was announced early last year to support the construction sector by providing a grant of $25,000 to build or buy a new property.
To say that the initiative has been a success is a bit of an understatement with about 75,000 people taking advantage of the grant around the nation before the end of last year.
Here on the Sunshine Coast, the government program has resulted in heady demand for new house and land opportunities.
However, developers have risen to the challenge by releasing more land to the market to keep up with the strong demand, which is a situation that is not changing anytime soon.
That said, a plethora of opportunities still remain to secure a strategic holding here on the Sunshine Coast.
How much is the HomeBuilder grant now?
The Federal Government’s HomeBuilder scheme was extended beyond its original deadline last year but there has been change to the grant amount.
Eligible purchasers in Queensland can access a $15,000 cash grant for signing a contract to build or buy a new property between 1 January and 31 March this year.
The buyers and the new property or new build must meet the government’s criteria, including maximum purchase prices and buyer incomes, with each State having its own unique property price points as well.
That is, in Queensland, the contract of sale must have signed between 4 June 2020 and 31 March 2021 to:
- buy an off-the plan or new home valued at $750,000 or less (including GST) and construction had not started before 4 June 2020
- build a new home where the build amount and the value of the land (including any existing structures) is $750,000 or less (including GST).
The scheme also requires buyers to apply before 21 April 2021 and provide all supporting evidence by 30 April 2023.
So, as you can see, time is running out for anyone keen to take advantage of, not only the opportunity to receive a significant sum from the government to buy or build a new property, but also to make the most of the rising market conditions on the Sunshine Coast.
In essence, buying a property now, which may not be completed for several months, means that you can take advantage of the potential for capital growth while it’s being constructed.
