Price competitive commercial or industrial property options are available; and with the NBN due in 2019, Glen Innes is an excellent destination for existing corporations and new ventures to cut costs on a variety of fronts.
Glen Innes is on the intersection of two major highways within 2 hours of the Pacific Motorway to the east and the soon to be constructed Inland railway to the west. Toowoomba Airport and Brisbane Port is not far to the North.
With the low cost of living, all the necessary living requirements in health, employment, recreation and education, close transport to get to anywhere in the world, Glen Innes Highlands is ideal for attracting highly skilled workers for your business venture.
In Glen Innes Highlands we have some of the best basalt grazing country in Australia with a relatively high rainfall of 856mm and this tends to be higher towards the east with closer to 1000mm annual rainfall.
Rural and semi-rural prices will vary depending on the soil quality. The soils in the region tend to be either red, chocolate brown or black basalt around Glen Innes and Glencoe, loamy granite and basalt mix as you head further east, and lighter granite and trap rock, clay based soils as you head north. Carrying capacities are around 1 cow per 3-5 acres.
For those coming from most other regions the carrying capacity of livestock justifies the higher acreage prices per acre. Many farms are inter-generational and are often tightly held onto. Some farming is done around Glen Innes with varying crops from corn, oats and soybeans produced.
Fat lambs, wool and beef are the main livestock along with multiple horse studs. There are some poultry farms, beef feedlots and piggeries in the area along with fruit and vegetable productions. The variety of options for land use are all factors driving rural land prices. There are also forestry interests in the area.
Glen Innes has some retail premises for let or for sale in the main shopping centre and around town at affordable prices.
As an example of price - A current café at the southern end of the main street which holds 36 people inside and a further 20 outside, a single car garage out back, rear lane access, large storage area and a 2 bedroom fully furnished unit above is for sale (walk in walk out) for $400,000.
