Sea-changers set sights on Kinkuna Waters

Kinkuna Waters Estate is close to Woodgate Beach

Kinkuna Waters Estate near Woodgate Beach has seen an influx of interest from savvy sea-changers with five lots sold in the last eight weeks.

Developed by Bundaberg Regional Council, Kinkuna Waters Estate appeals to buyers who want a coastal lifestyle with access to water and sewerage.

New resident Craig Doyle said the availability of large lots and proximity to beautiful Woodgate Beach were just some of the features that made Kinkuna Waters the best place for him and his partner to call home.

“The estate ticked all the boxes for us; we lived south of Brisbane, and after moving to Bundaberg for a career opportunity, we fell in love with the region,” Craig said.

He said the couple were looking for a relaxed coastal lifestyle, and a large lot to set down roots.

“Kinkuna Waters Estate is 7km from stunning Woodgate Beach so we can ride our bikes to the beach,” Craig said.

“The area has a real charm about it and it's a faster commute to work (in Bundaberg) than when we lived in Brisbane.

“Not many coastal communities have 2000sqm lots available in that price range, and if they do, then you usually don't get access to water and sewerage.”

In a recent article written for The Australian, renowned demographer Bernard Salt said his outlook for regional Australia during the 2020s remains positive.

Mr Salt wrote that in the coming year there will likely be an increase in older Australians searching for a sea change or tree change.

“One of the key drivers of social change in regional Australia in the coming decade will be baby boomers looking to cash in their city-based homes and downshift to lifestyle properties just beyond the commuting orbit of capital cities,” he said.

“Baby boomers will not remain in the city throughout their retirement years. The 2020s is when many can be expected to sell up, move out and settle into a lifestyle zone.”

Kinkuna Waters Estate is a six-minute drive from stunning Woodgate Beach and is adjacent to the Burrum Coast National Park, 40 minutes from Bundaberg.

  1. Yeah, well good luck Craig to riding your bike from Kinkuna Waters to Woodgate on the Woodgate Road. I take my life into the drivers on the roads hands when riding down to Woodgate and the council will not even talk to me on the subject of a bike path.
