For decades some of Australia's most astute property investors have reaped the benefits of growth in locations that support the country's key energy industries.

Time and again openings of new energy projects have seen property values skyrocket, fired by a combination of tight supply and heavy demand.

One area of Queensland is about to offer investors a level of unprecedented growth and stability that has yet to be seen.

West of Brisbane the Surat Basin region is about to be launched onto the world energy stage, becoming Australia's largest energy province by 2011.

An abundance of natural resources has fuelled an awe-inspiring total of $100B of current and proposed projects in the region, leading to an expected influx of more than 30,000 workers.

Sales Director of established local building firm Surat Basin Homes, Colin West, said that while investment of this kind will see significant future demand in a tight rental market, it is the Surat Basin's sustainability that helps create an unrivalled investment opportunity.

"The capital growth potential of this region is enormous. We're talking about one of the largest industrial infrastructure spends in Australia's history.

"In addition to that Surat Basin Homes is offering investors who act now incredible affordability and the rare opportunity to reap the benefits of owning a cash flow positive investment," Colin said.

"Unlike many 'Boom Towns', the Surat Basin offers incredible security because it is powered by not one, but a diverse range of industries - all attracting new investment."

The Surat Basin's reserve of the highest quality thermal coal has the potential to cater to 26 mines, more than any other area in Australia.

In addition to coal mining, planned investment is being poured into rail, gas, water and power projects across the region. Projects include:

  • More than 200km of rail infrastructure will be delivered by 2013, providing efficient transportation for coal exportation.
  • In one of the country's largest gas projects, $35B will be invested to pipe Surat Basin gas to Gladstone and liquefy it for export.
  • Water production and purification will provide obvious benefits to agriculture and other industries in this otherwise fairly dry region of Australia.
  • Multiple gas fired power stations are already being developed with plans for more.

Investors should act now to reap the benefits of still affordable prices, before proposed infrastructure projects push growth.

Surat Basin Homes is offering buyers an incredible opportunity to enter this supply-tight market now.

With four generations of local experience Surat Basin Homes has employed its unique local knowledge to identify key locations that will optimise the benefits of this investment opportunity for investors.

Surat Basin Homes has released a limited number of house and land packages for just $350,000 - a low purchase price that helps create the perfect circumstances for a cash flow positive investment.

"Surat Basin Homes has created affordable packages designed to deliver premium quality homes through hassle-free construction.

"Plus we offer an increasingly rare service - fixed price contracts.

"That means no compromise on quality and no nasty surprise costs," Colin said.

"The dream of owning an affordable cash flow positive investment in a location destined for unprecedented capital growth has become a reality.

"If it costs you nothing to hold the property and values are set to increase at a significant rate, investors need to ask themselves why they wouldn't jump on the opportunity."
