Strategically-located in the high growth region of Southern Queensland, the region offers an appealing mix of country and city living backed up by genuine friendliness and charm. All the civic and commercial services you need are at your fingertips and there is no rush hour traffic!
Modern hospital and health care facilities are available throughout the region as well as a number of medical clinics, dental surgeries and a full range of specialist medical services.
