The Bargara, Bundaberg and Coral Coast regions have come of age in the property market. According to Alan Midwood " Bundaberg house prices managed a 35 percent increase over 5 years, as it is diversifying into tourism and picking up momentum from the baby boomer generation". Also, as Michael Matusik says "Bargara Beach is Queensland's most affordable Coastal Region". This growth and interest can only be sustained with further investment and development from companies such as Cabe, Mirvac, Austcorp, Metricon and others alongside with the realisation that the area represents a quality lifestyle for those who appreciate the benefits of a truly Queensland experience.
