New Auckland offers range of options for property buyers

EVERYTHING you need seems closely positioned in New Auckland.

The Gladstone suburb is wedged between Dawson Hwy and Kirkwood Rd - only minutes from the airport.

The area gained its name from the ship Lord Auckland, which carried some of Gladstone's first settlers in 1847, and from the prominent Kirkwood family.

But despite its long history, the area did not begin to become highly populated until the 1980s.

Since those days the suburb has continued to grow in popularity.

The area offers families and individuals a great lifestyle - with its neat café, The Hungry Cow, located in the small shopping hub.

Commercial developments like Avion Place, the Bunnings Centre, Harvey Road Tavern and Leagues Club area all easily accessible to New Auckland residents.

Today, New Auckland offers a wide range of options to the property buyer from affordable units and townhouses, new houses and land, retirement living, as well as a few million dollar properties.

Australian Property Monitors (APM) Property Data lists 42 properties as sold in New Auckland within the last six months.

These houses and units have ranged in sale price from $207,000 to $644,000.

Currently, APM has 196 properties listed for sale or auction.

These range from $239,000 for a three-bedroom, one-bathroom to $820,000 for a six-bedroom, three-bathroom home.

The New Auckland area includes new and older houses, with great options currently available on the market.

St John's Primary School and Clinton Primary School are just a stone's throw away as well as a number of childcare centres including ABC Gladstone and Community Kids Clinton Park Early Education Centre.
