  • Dalby is not in the centre of the Coal/Gas market.It is still driven by cattle.The workers need to be further west, around Chinchilla, Miles, Wandoan or Roma.The workers in Dalby are occupied around the Kogan area and there is no more demand through there.Go west young man!!

  • China's need for coal wont stop if their economy slows.They dont have enough of their own and what they dont take will go to India.If you had been in Wandoan a bit more than 12 months you would have seen that coal is the smallest part of the towns growth.The missing link railway, coal seam gas, gas pipelines to gladstone, these are all providing…[Read more]

  • Perhaps another way to look at it would be to ask the question – "Am i so morally corrupt that i will do whatever it takes to get the FHOG rather than live an honourable honest life?"The amount of money involved in the FHOG is insignificant in the long term, and dont forget it belongs to the Australian taxpayer not the tooth fairy

    I'm thinking of Dalby as well. Even though there is a lot of land…people still want to be near the centre of town which will still stay mostly in the same place.I hear there is a big Engineering firm building offices at the moment…good news I think!

    Have been nosing around Wandoan and it appears that it is in the phase of the calm before the storm.  Also Chinchilla and Miles are in line for more infrastructure projects with a new mine started near Chinchilla. Have you any further thoughts scedd

  • Its time to have a look at Wandoan, but avoid the really cheap houses as they need full reno's and the mining and drilling companies in  town are looking for clean tidy furnished houses.We just sold a 5 bedroom on 1012sqm for 235k, settles next monday.It is furnished and is leased for $450 per week.It cost us 195k 18 months ago, but it had 3…[Read more]

    ….whatever you decide to do don't look back ever.Carpe

    good advise – no regrets and dont EVER look backUnless your walking along a nudie beach

  • i am going to go the other way.If you can afford it and its all you can afford, then anything IS better than nothing.After all, unless you lock the money away and dont touch it, this is enforced savings and it will help your credit history when you do want a loan.But do your sums first!!

    Hi Steve,I looked at Wandoan just over 12 months ago, with the same thought as you. I got the feeling that the mines have learnt this time around as most of the land for sale had already been purchased by the mines themselves and when I spoke to a few locals, the feeling was the mine was going to build their own workers…[Read more]

  • i have been watching this topic for a while, waiting to see if anyone has identified the next town to go off with mining.For my 2 bobs worth , i think it will be Wandoan.With coal seam gas, Cockatoo mine, Xstrata's new mine (the biggest in OZ), the missing link railway & the Nathan dam,this place will have to start booming.Has anyone got any…[Read more]
