Average blocks say 700-800sqm approx $1600 per year at present. Half what a friend pays on the mainland who lives in a very ordinary suburb!

This for a vacant block is rubbish, it is fraud, and as the council have no powers under the Australian constitution why do every one not fight them, they tried to get power in a referendum but failed. Queensland do not have any powers both have an ABN which makes them a corporation.

Hi Juri...what are those prices based on? Is it land value/size? It's confusing and disappointing as I want to buy land on the island, and build on it but not for living on, just visiting weekends, as we have to stay in the city for now. I'm new to the whole realestate thing, keen to learn and make an informed choice. I'm not having a demented investors dream, just want a bit of bush to build a small place on. Seems silly for anyone to pay that level of rates though unless they can afford to relocate completely or have money to throw away.

Hi, I have just got off the phone from the Redland Council after complaining about the redicoulas high rates I pay for a small block of land on Russell Island, valued by council at $15400-. I have to pay $423- per quarter nearly $1700- per year for what? My family has had the block since it's subdivision in 1972. Council 's response was that there is a blanket base rate for vacant land. It is set so high in an attempt to encourage people to build on all the vacant land. You could pay more rates for a vacant block of land on Russell Island than a house worth $800,000- in Melbourne. It's not council rates it's council rent! Complete outright robbery!!

Thank you very much for that. Nice to see someone injecting some actual data into the conversation instead of the usual arm waving and frantic one sided arguments.

Testimonial:
“Matt is an insured uber driver. He has the taxi licence..
He is respectable and doesnt do anything wrong. You can pay cash or card which is great. Plus the best thing is its a clean and tidy car and he will get a car seat when required. The back seats even turn in to a booster seat. So for the quality of care and respect you get its amazing” -Russell Island Resident

I do t understand...the blocks are say, 30 000. How can rates be so high? There's not very good infrastructure. Are they the same across the whole range of prices?

rates in queensland are nearly always between $1200 and $1600 annual. Decided on the govt valuation of the land only (not what the value of dwellings etc is) and having regard to about 6 other recent property sales in the immediate area .
