Norman Gardens

BASED on the fact that the layout of Norman Gardens virtually sweeps up into the hills of North Rockhampton, this area provides investors with a wealth of different real estate choices. Set on the outskirts of North Rockhampton and close to Central Queensland University, Norman Gardens is an ideal location for someone who wants the peace and quiet of the northside while still being close to a range of shopping and dining experiences. There is an interesting mix of double-storey homes higher up the mountain with single-storey, modern rendered homes, leaving it open to a greater range of buyers and renters - at an average of $360 a week.

The Range

SET high in the hills of Rockhampton is the well-known, high-class residential suburb The Range. Given its close proximity to grand schools, the Rockhampton hospitals and the gorgeous grounds of the Botanic Gardens, this has long been a coveted address. Add to that stunning views of Rockhampton and you have classic, well restored Queenslander style homes of the colonial style commanding high prices.
