Outback QLD town of Quilpie giving away ‘free’ blocks of land

0

In a bid to encourage a younger demographic to move to the area, a small Queensland town is giving away ‘free’ blocks of land to new home buyers.

Quilpie Shire Council, about 1000km west of Brisbane, is offering $12,500 to anyone who buys land and builds a new home in the area that is valued at less than $750,000.

As blocks of land in the region are selling for as little as $12,500, it means people could essentially get the blocks of land for free.

You must, however, reside in the home for at least the first six months after it is built, and you must be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident.
