BUNDY RECEIVES FANTASTIC LIFESTYLE & INVESTMENT RATINGS

Over the past week Bundaberg has acheived some amazing ratings from independently conducted reviews into our lifestyle and property investment opportunities.

Suncorp Bank’s ‘Family Friendly Cities’ Report has rated Bundaberg as 10th out of the 30 most populated cities across the nation.

The report assesses each city against five Primary Indicators and five Seconday Indicators as follows:-

Primary Indicators

1.  Crime
2.  Health (1)
3.  Education
4.  Housing
5.  Unemployment

Secondary Indicators

1.  Income
2.  Child Care
3.  Health (2)
4.  Connectivity
5.  Community

The Smart Property Investment Report rates Bundaberg amongst the top 50 Australian suburbs geared for capital growth.

In describing what is referred to as the “Fast 50”, the report states that “… a significant 17 were located in Queensland, with a wave of regional centres such as Bundaberg and Mount Isa attracting a mention, as well as several Brisbane suburbs.”

Remember, this report rates suburbs as opposed to cities which significantly increases the value of being within the top 50.

It’s well worthwhile clicking on the links above to view the reports and see the details of how we were rated in each of them.

I recently discussed the reports with Neil McPhillips of Starfire Solutions who is an economic development consultant to both the Bundaberg Regional Council and the North Burnett Regional Council and he concurs that the reports reinforce our reputation as the ‘Lifestyle Capital of Queensland’.

He also believes that whilst the ratings provide support for the marketing of the region, they should also be absorbed by locals to bolster community pride and confidence. “Members of our local community are our best ‘champions’ and it’s important that they really appreciate what we have on offer and how our region is viewed from the outside”, he said.
