SOUTH Gladstone is where much of the Gladstone action takes place. One feature is the Gladstone South State School, which dates back to 1898.

The suburb's significant growth period is also evident after the opening of the Toolooa State High School in 1981.

South Gladstone is also home to the TAFE.

The region is bustling with shops, businesses and neighbouring homes.

Dining options are plentiful in the area and many dining venues are within walking distance.

Gladstone RE/MAX Gold licensed real estate saleswoman Kate Vicente said South Gladstone had become a suburb of choice for many locals.

"We have seen families move to the area for convenience to local schools and shops," she said.

"It has also proven to be popular for workers due to its close proximity to the island ferry terminal and QAL."

Mrs Vicente said agents had seen rental prices come back slightly with more homes becoming available for rent in the region, along with the correction of house prices steadying to a more sustainable level.

"South Gladstone is quite a central suburb and is located close by Barney Point beach," she said.

Domain.com.au shows the median house prices for the area are $435,000, with the local government area median price listed as $462,000.

The median house price for units is $305,000 in comparison to the LGA price of $377,000.

Within the past 12 months the highest price paid for a house in South Gladstone was $870,000, according to domain.com.au.

If you are looking to rent or buy in South Gladstone there is much variety to choose from.

Always remember to do your research and you never know, you may just pick up the perfect home for you.
