Be Part of a Growing and Vibrant Community

While you will love being at home in Adare Grove, the local area also offers an abundance of opportunities to explore, along with lots of social and leisure activities.

South-East Queensland is one of Australia’s key growth hotspots and will continue to grow over the next couple of decades.

Adare Grove Estate represents an opportunity to secure country acreage in the heart of the major SE Queensland growth corridor between Ipswich and Toowoomba. Blocks of this size in such a convenient and accessible location will be hard to find in the not-too-distant future.

About the Valley

The Lockyer Valley is a rich and fertile plain producing around $400m worth of agricultural product per year. The town of Gatton as a population of approximately 7500. Beyond this, the greater Lockyer Regional Council area has a population of some 40,000.

Many of the long-term locals in Gatton and the surrounding centres are descended from the German immigrants who made up the majority of early settlers in the area in the mid 1800’s.

These days it is a community that welcomes people from all walks of life who have chosen it as their home. Adare Grove is another addition to the mix and variety of talent and people that make the Valley so special.

Local Economy

The Lockyer Valley has traditionally relied heavily on horticulture/agriculture and associated industries such as transport. With this strong base underpinning production, the local economy has begun to evolve in recent years.

The area is one of Australia’s primary ‘salad bowls’ producing a wide range of fruit and vegetables. The rich black and red soils, and reliable water sources, make the Lockyer Valley a vital supplier of the nation’s fresh produce. With its close proximity to the Brisbane & Wellcamp airports as well as national transport routes, the Valley is well situated to ship this quality produce to the world.

Infrastructure spend is associated with wealth and prosperity. The growth of SE Qld has bought much investment and the region is on the edge of much more (eg. inland rail). Travel times to major centres have also been dramatically reduced. The Lockyer Valley is now a viable option for those wishing to work in SE

Queensland but home themselves away from the hustle and congestion of the city.
With a growing local Community we are seeing a wide range of new business and employment opportunities presenting themselves.
