Top tourism town on the move

DUNSBOROUGH, top tourism town of 1999, is going places.

The local real estate industry is bullish about the future of the town in the fastest growing shire in Australia.

Dunsborough Real Estate principal Les Patton believes the area has a lot to offer in terms of climate and lifestyle.

Jobs are also becoming easier to find with the growth in tourism and viticulture in the region.

Dunsborough Professional’s principle Peter De Chiera, who opened his business in November because of the potential, said the future is great for the town.

“It is inevitable that Dunsbor-ough will be the Noosa of the west coast,” he said.

Mr Patton said Dunsborough held the most expensive real estate outside of Perth.

He said the cheapest house in Dunsborough would sell for around $140,000 while a similar house in Busselton would cost approximately $90,000.

Property on the foreshore is at a premium.

Blocks on Geographe Bay Road are valued at about $350,000 while houses overlooking the Bay would not sell for less than $500,000, Mr Patton said.

Mr Patton said another area of growth had been investment in short stay strata title units, although he commented there seemed to be something of a glut at present.
