An entire town in rural Queensland is on the market for less than an average Brisbane home, with the former saw mill community providing endless commercial opportunities, according to the selling agent.
Less than six hours inland from Brisbane, or 4.5 hours from the Sunshine Coast, is the 15 hectare Central Queensland town of Allies Creek.
The small township was a saw mill camp until 2008, and now comprises 12 fully-functional Queenslanders varying between two, three, and four-bedrooms, with a total price tag of just $500,000.
Listing agent Danielle Meyer told Yahoo7 interest has been steady since putting the town on the market last week, with potential buyers considering turning the property into a tourist spot or health retreat.
Ms Meyer, of Danielle Meyer Rural, said the houses were well maintained, and some have been recently renovated, with each connected to electricity, water and toilets. Two are currently tenanted, and a caretaker lives in a third.
A tennis court, community hall, helipad, former church, and former timber mill are also included in the sale.
The infrastructure alone was worth well more than the half a million dollar listing price according to Ms Meyer.

“I couldn’t believe what you could get for your money.
“If someone could think outside the box, it’s a great opportunity for someone to make a tourism business out of it.”
Current owner Natali Williams and her late husband bought the property in 2000, and have previously put it on the market for $2.1m but had not found the right buyer.
With the price slashed significantly, Ms Meyer is confident the property won’t remain on the market long.
