"..."

Seems like a great location, but roads are busy and slow with no over taking lanes to Brown's plains or gold coast. Too many people investing in tiny blocks in estates with no green areas, so lots of renters living on top of each other. Be wary of renting through the large real estate in town they are notorious for being unhelpful and difficult to deal with. Medical facilities are good, great swimming pool and library. Wish people would stop investing! And its 1 hour to the gold cost and Brisbane, without being held up in traffic despite what real estate's say.

"Beautiful town steeped in Queensland History"

Currently researching the history of Beaudesert and finding it very interesting. I definitely agree that it is a great place to invest in - 45 mins to Gold Coast and Brisbane but still a quiet country town. Iconic Beaudesert Hotel on the corner serves great food !

"Beaudesert - friendly country town close to Brisbane"

Beaudesert is an hour inland from the Gold Coast a good sized town in an agricultural area. There are good shopping facilities in town along with swimming pool, good golf course as well as tennis and playing fields. The town is well known for the showgrounds and there is the historical museum to visit and a good community centre. The locals are friendly and helpful. House and land prises in the area are still affordable but are on the rise with many people looking for a tree change. Beaudesert is a great place with some amazing scenery nearby and walking tracks to explore.

"Investors dream"

visited the town some months back and decided to buy an investment property on the spot.

Plenty to like about this booming town, not too far from Brisvegas and the Gold Coast.

This town will be the next big property growth area in my opinion.

"Ghost or Bust"

On e could be forgiven for thinking that Beaudesert was a Ghost town should one arrive here after midday Saturday, the very first time I went out there from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke I wondered what I had driven into, there were so few people around I thought I was in a Ghost town, but come a week day and wow what a difference there is this town is a thriving rural center and is full of activity and the difference between weekend and week days is quiet remarkable.

Beaudesert as a whole is a nice country town, more and more people are discovering Beaudesert and there's only one way this place can go forward, housing here is still reasonably priced although there are a number of places around town that would be on a par cost wise with places in Brisbane.

Beaudesert' advantage at the moment is that it still has that peaceful country atmosphere but for how much longer? this is the question. As Brisbane spills out into the surrounding areas places like Beaudesert can only get bigger not smaller.

When all said and done Beaudesert is less than an hours drive from Brisbane and when the Mt Lindsay highway is upgraded to a dual courage way the trip between Beaudesert and Brisbane will be a snap, it's not bad at present but as traffic builds up this will change.

Overall Beaudesert is a pretty reasonable place when all said and done!

"Great for the kids"

I love that I can take my kids to the numerous parks and they love riding their bikes on the many footpaths around town. The area has so much such a arts, wine trails and camping facilities. When the new dam is finished there will be more activities for the family.

"A Comfortable & Affordable Town"

Beaudesert is a growing town with plently of potential, Some of us love the town as it still has Beauty and Charm. When you walk down the street of this town you will often get a hello, or how has your day been. Small things that are often missed in the busy areas of australia.
We still have Some Old australian Cultre being a town recognisied for its equestrian events and farming. But also have a range of grocery shops, a few small clothes shops, ample food and of course the local pub.

Being located so centrally in south east queensland. we have the benifits of being close enough to both brisbane and the Gold coast.

Also you don't want to miss out, on the Scenic Rim experiance, we have some of the most beautiful areas all around us.

"A Growing Town"

Having moved to Beaudesert over 17 Years ago from suburban Victoria it was one of the best decisions I have made for my family.
We lived on small acreage, where the children had rivers to fish in, motorbike tracks to ride on and the space for them to explore, run and hide.
The schools were great, from pre school right through to high school, and now each of our children have apprentiships and trainee-ships and doing really well. I honestly put that down to the country personalities, where the care factor is right up there

"You'll love it (if you're a cowboy)"

Beaudesert is the cultural void found approximately forty five minutes west of the Gold Coast. It offers minimal retail, medical or cultural appeal. In the past 3 years however, the local council has attempted to rectify this with the creation of "The Centre" an artistic facility that regularly holds concerts, arts nights, performances and gallery exhibitions. Unfortunately the demographic of Canungra is not suited to such a facility. Agricultural in it's description, it is barren, dry, dusty and experiences hot summers and cold winters. The townsfolk are either unfriendly or undecipherable and the entire town has the air of a run down pub. Basically you'll love it-if you're a cowboy that's had a lobotomy.
