High-end regional areas highlighted

By Stefanie Garber

The most expensive regional areas in Victoria are within driving distance of the city and have something special to offer, according to new information from the REIV.

“Mostly, these were places with that something extra – a coastal location or magnificent bushland. And all are within reasonable proximity of Melbourne,” REIV CEO Enzo Raimondo said.

Barwon Heads, south of Geelong, has some of the countryside’s most expensive houses.

The town’s median price is $690,000, outstripping Melbourne’s median of $658,000.

Nearby Point Lonsdale had a median price of $645,000.

In the three months to September, the highest median price in the state was QueenscliffQueenscliff, NSW Queenscliff, VIC, with $740,000.

However, Mr Raimondo warned only 50 sales were made in the town in the past 12 months, skewing the data.

Other rural areas which topped the half-a-million mark include Apollo Bay, Ocean Grove, TorquayTorquay, QLD Torquay, VIC, Lake Wendouree, Gisborne, Macedon and WoodendWoodend, QLD Woodend, VIC.

Mr Enzo also pointed to certain areas with exceptionally high upper quartile prices, meaning the 75th percentile price.

In Barwon Heads, the upper quartile price was $880,0000, indicating that 25 per cent of properties sold above this price point.

In addition, the upper quartile price was $800,000 in Queenscliff and $793,250 in Macedon.
