Land for Sale Bundaberg: Best Places to Buy

Queensland Beach

In recent years, Bundaberg has had a lot of growth both in family home sales and also for its investment potential. Known for its rich history, beautiful beaches, and idyllic lifestyle, it's no surprise that more and more people are considering this Queensland destination as the ideal place to buy land and build a home. 

As custom home builders, we’ve created house plans and built homes for clients all over the Bundaberg region. But we also notice the trends in the areas that are becoming popular and are desirable places to buy land and live in. And here, land near the coast and the beach is particularly popular. 

Our Local Real Estate Agent’s Perspective

We asked one of our local real estate agents what she thinks are the areas gaining momentum around Bundaberg. Places that are good to buy land in now and with a good return on investment further down the line. 

Elisa Mayberry from First National Bundaberg told us the following:

We believe investing in land in Burnett Heads and Bargara are the most promising Bundaberg locales for return on investment in 2023. The allure of Burnett Heads' Gateway Marina development, coupled with its convenient proximity to Bundaberg. Meanwhile, in Bargara, the surging popularity of this coastal gem has propelled its land prices skyward, underscoring the remarkable returns on investment it offers. With both locales in such close proximity to Bundaberg, these coastal havens have emerged as the best suburbs in Bundaberg to invest in land.

Let’s look at these areas further.

Burnett Heads: A Boater's Paradise

Located just a short drive from Bundaberg, Burnett Heads offers a perfect blend of laid-back coastal living and development potential. It's a perfect locale for boating enthusiasts, with the Gateway Marina development serving as a significant point of interest. 

This area is a spot that caters to boaters, offering a range of amenities including slips, boat ramps, and local restaurants. As a plus, the real estate market here has been gaining traction, making it a prime location for those looking for a promising return on investment.

Why Burnett Heads?

  • Close to Bundaberg: A short drive to the main city allows for easy access to amenities while still maintaining a secluded coastal lifestyle.
  • Marina and boat storage: The marina complex that serves as a significant draw for boating aficionados.
  • Rising Property Values: Steady capital growth promises good returns for investors.
  • Space for the family: There has been council investment into local playgrounds and outdoor spaces
  • Close access to nature: coastal walks, oceanfront views and small beaches

Burnett Heads is one of the least built-up coastal areas around Bundaberg. It is a quieter area with more space. If you are looking for a quieter area with less tourists but still close to the water, this is worth a look.

Bargara has long been known for its stunning waterfront, but in recent years, its popularity has exploded, turning this once-hidden gem into a hotbed for investment. The area is home to a variety of shops, cafes, playgrounds, and restaurants, all set against the backdrop of picturesque beaches.

Both Burnett Heads and Bargara, along with much of Queensland, have been experiencing increased demand in the rental market. But these areas, with their beauty, won’t diminish in rental demand. 

The amenities and lifestyle they offer have also attracted a significant number of retirees, further boosting the demand for land and property in these areas.
