Top 10 Qld hotpots – Townsville by Terry Ryder
Townsville ranks in my mind as the sturdiest regional economy in Australia. I always seek economic diversity in a property investment location and Townsville has more than any other regional city. It has strong elements of government administration, education, defence, resources, health, tourism and manufacturing.
Its property market experienced an unbroken run of double-digit growth years from 2002 to 2007 – and, after a pause for the past couple of years, is ready to resume its forward progress.
Townsville’s comeback is being boosted by a number of major projects, including residential estates, retail development, CBD commercial projects and infrastructure spending. But possibly the two biggest factors in its future are the announcements by the State Government that it intends to develop the city as “a second capital city” for Queensland and the expansion of the city’s military economy.
Townsville has a younger population than the Australian and Queensland averages,” Wikipedia says. “The city has a high turnover of people, with the army base and government services bringing in many short-to-medium-term workers. The region is popular with mine workers on fly-in-fly-out contracts. Improvements to lifestyle infrastructure have led to a higher living standard and consequently the population boom.
The Townsville region performed strongly during the global financial crisis, recording economic growth around 16% in 2009, according to a Compelling Economics study. It found activity was strong across a range of economic sectors, and highlighted three major contributors: gold mining, defence force spending and sugar production.
