The Australian suburbs going gangbusters – and it’s not where you think

Australia’s  largest real estate group Ray White has released the top three best performing suburbs in each state – and the results may surprise you.

Data analyst for Ray White, William Clark said while growth had slowed across the country over 2022, there were still pockets where prices continue to increase apace.

In NSW, Bellbird near Cessnock experienced a 150.6 percent increase in growth, with median sales prices reaching $550,000 over the past year. Sydney’s Box Hill was another strong performer, with a 132.7 percent rise, bringing median sales prices up to $1.245m, while median sales in Leppington in Sydney’s west reached $1.075m – a 122.3 percent rise over the year.

Queensland recorded the next best results, with Collinsville, west of Proserpine, recording median sales increases of 65.9 percent and Eumundi, a rural town on the Sunshine Coast, where prices rose on average by 63 percent over the past year to a median of $1.32m.

Three suburbs in Victoria – Rochester, Point Lonsdale and Port Fairy – all saw sales increases of more than 50 percent in the past year with similar results in South Australia for Burnside, Beaumont and Elizabeth South.

“It appears prices have risen evenly in both the regions and the outer reaches of a major city,” Mr Clark said. “Interestingly, we never see the high percentage growth in the traditionally expensive or inner city suburbs that dominate the leaderboards for dollar growth. 

“While the trend over the pandemic lockdowns was a shift to the regions, that trend appears to have slowed somewhat, as workers have returned to the office.”

Sparkling wine flows as Australian winemaker takes out top international award

An Australian winemaker has taken out the top prize for sparkling wine at the International Wine Challenge, the first time a local winemaker has done so. It marks just the second time in the competition’s 40-year history that the award has gone to a winemaker outside France’s Champagne region.

Tasmanian-based House of Arras’ chief winemaker, Ed Carr, was presented with the award for Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at a special ceremony in London earlier this week.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be named this year’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year. It’s a challenge to describe the feeling, but I’m proud to be recognised amongst my peers for such a significant international award,” Mr Carr said.

The IWC is considered one of the world’s most rigorous and impartial wine competitions. This year, France topped the medal tally with 72 gold, 394 silver and 455 bronze medals – extending their haul by 84 more wins than last year.  

The 40-year-old competition is considered one of the most influential events in the winemaking calendar.

Australian winemakers took out second place, with 54 gold, 250 silver and 154 bronze medals. Australia also won 19 trophies, 10 of which went to South Australia.

House of Arras also received the Australian Sparkling Trophy for its 2014 House of Arras Blanc de Blancs, as well as two gold and six silver medals.

Tasmania’s cool climate and soil make it ideal for producing world-class sparkling wine says Ed Carr (pictured).

Mr Carr said Tasmania’s cool climate and terroir were equal to the world’s best sparkling wine regions. The wins follow a strong showing this year at Australia’s National Wine Show and the Decanter World Wine Awards, where House of Arras also collected awards.

“2024 has been an outstanding year on the awards front, and I’m honoured to add this recent recognition from the International Wine Challenge to the mantle,” he said.
