"The most undervalued town in Australia"

This place is surrounded by breathtaking beaches and wilderness. It still has a strong farming community which makes for a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There is a solid indigenous community which adds a great mix of culture to the area. this place has an absolutely excellent State school which is now second to none and is right in the centre of town. There are not too many places left with the character of Bowraville and it really is extreme value.
10 minutes to Macksville and 40 minutes to Coffs Harbour, how could you go wrong with the price of acres here.
The truth of the matter is that prices are low in town because certain people are judgmental of the indigenous people who live here. The upside of this is that the town has fewer racist people than average and housing is a dead set bargain.
A great, clean and friendly town close to the nicest beaches on the east coast, if not in the country.
Pros
  • You can really relax here
  • there is no real downers
Cons
  • some roads could and should be improved

"Keep your eye on Bowraville - Real Estate values are about to go up and up"

Bowraville is a quaint little town of approx 2500 people. It has the world of opportunity for people wishing to escape the big smoke with houses being cheap, and opportunity for self-employment, for people like tradesman, etc etc to enjoy a new start and a great lifestyle. We have schools, 1 supermarket (with big expansion in the pipeline), a take away food shop, newsagent, RSL, 1 pub and a doctor that bulk bills.. What more could you ask for? Come and check Bowraville out..... you may never want to leave. To buy here may just be cheaper than renting - Check it out!
