Queensland’s property market is rounding out the year on a strong note, with Noosa among the top performers for quarterly growth.

The latest REIQ figures for the September 2023 quarter (July-September) show that statewide median house prices lifted by 2.07 percent to a median of $690,000, and median unit prices rising by 3.92 percent to a median of $530,000.

Noosa were Noosa (six percent), Toowoomba (4.52 percent) and Ipswich (3.60 percent) – arguably representing the best of Queensland’s lifestyle, regions, and city outskirts. Above-average quarterly growth was also seen in Fraser Coast (2.68 percent), Cairns (2.61 percent) and Townsville (2.47 percent).


Reflecting the coastal lifestyle, a four-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car house with pool at 2 Seascout Circuit, Noosa Waters, is on the market with a price guide of $2.30m.

Monique Sommer of Reed & Co, said the property has some interesting coastal details after being newly renovated and inspired by the tones of the Mediterranean.

Situated across an 850sq m corner block, the single-level home is ready to simply move straight in.

Double timber front doors open to multiple living spaces overlooking a tropical garden and pool.

The interiors feature Mercadier Decoration in Coco Milk, and a hand-troweled micro-cement finish from France that completes the floors and the bathrooms in their entirety.

The kitchen offers Caesarstone bench tops, Franke induction cooktop and oven, and hand-cut Moroccan tile splash back.

Adjacent is the spacious family dining and lounge area, which spills onto a rear entertaining space overlooking the newly-landscaped garden.

The over-sized main bedroom has an ensuite featuring a double shower, built-ins and walk-in robe.

The three other bedrooms each come with built-in wardrobes, lots of space and natural light.

Natural sisal flooring has been used in the bedrooms, lounge, and dining area.

A short, level stroll to the river precinct, this home will give the feeling of being on a holiday year-round.


A two-bedroom, one-bathroom, one-car apartment at 4/5 Barbados Cres, Noosaville, has come onto the market with Anne Powell of Laguna Real Estate.

Barbados Court is a tightly-held precinct close to the Noosa River, and this renovated, townhouse-style apartment has been listed at offers over $1.30m considered.

“It’s a great apartment in a prime location,’’ Anne said. “It’s always popular with holidaymakers.

“Barbados Crescent is a prime riverside street. There is a park and sandy beach at Munna Point.’’

Modern and well-maintained, the property has a history of excellent returns.

As an end unit it offers the desirable easterly aspect to capture the morning sun.

The sweeping views range from Double Island in the north to Moreton Island in the south and beyond, to the peaks of the Glass House Mountains and Mount Ninderry.

Zoe Cooke at Tom Offermann Real Estate has listed the property at $2.6m.

“It is a hidden gem,’’ Zoe said, “offering space and privacy.’’

The custom-designed and master-built home comes with a north-easterly orientation and floor-to-ceiling windows. This maximises the views from virtually every room, with a picture-postcard outlook to Mount Coolum from the main bedroom suite.

The residence offers expansive, family-friendly living of the highest calibre with premium fixtures and fittings, eco-friendly and energy efficient inclusions, and a versatile floor plan with its own self-contained studio on ground level.

A four-bedroom, two-bathroom, three-car house with pool on 5899sq m at 80 Templeton Way, Doonan, has gone to contract with local buyers virtually as soon as it was listed with Alisa Wythes of Hinternoosa.

For sale by offer, the fairytale property sold within a week after what Alisa described as “an amazing amount of interest.’’

Of solid brick construction and with sprawling gardens and lawn, the house offered studio space to bring in flexibility for various pursuits.

With a perfect northerly aspect and 2.7-metre ceilings, this was a property you fall in love with, Alisa said.

“It has two fireplaces, air-conditioning, and is set on the high side of the road at the end of a cul-de-sac.

“The property would have been spectacular in its hey-day and the buyers intend to return it to its former glory.’’
