"we have a rental property here"

we will possibly move here once the jail has been built. Massive economical opportunites will filter into the community once the jail is build which should be in a couple fo years. Rumour is that the new QLD Police Academy is also going to be built here and that Bunnings are going to build there HQ here. Even if they turn out to be unfounded, your capital is safe here and growth is circa 12% pa.

"Quiet multi-cultural communtiy"

Gatton is a up coming area with the new prision going in just a few minutes out of town the land prices and values are booming not to mention the new businesses coming to town. gatton has many great kid orientated parks and also has a great local golf course. there are many places to taste some of the local produce and flavors. only 30 minutes to Ipswich and 1 hour to Brisbane. It makes everything a stones throw away. spend your weekend exploring and enjoying the local scenes or use them exploring our great coasts and inland Queensland. there is also the new Lockyer Valley Tourist center there on the side of lake apex which combines a art gallery, transport muesum, library and cafe all together and hiding just out the back is a great kids play equipment to keep kids of all ages busy.

"The home of the up and coming farmers and vetinery doctors."

The Unversity of Queensland is in Gatton and many a farmer has left the university to go out and improve the family property. It really is in the centre of some of the richest farming land in Australia.

It is a lovely sight to drive through this area and see the properties that are obviously being run to perfection. Crop rotation is strong and the crops are some of the best around and sought after by the top chefs in the area.

Even though other towns are not too far away Gatton has a strong community involvement.

To the west is Toowoomba and to the east is Brisbane and the Gold Coast, so Gatton is well situated for accessing all that south east Qld has to offer.
