Largest Military Presence in Australia Makes Perfect Investment Sense
Townsville is home to the army’s 3rd Brigade, one of the largest defence bases in Australia, with 4000 military and 700 civilian personnel. The economic investment impact will become considerably heightened when Sydney’s 3rd Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR) is relocated to Townsville in 2012, adding a further 1500 personnel to the region. David Crisafulli, Deputy Mayor of Townsville and Chair of the Economic Development Committee, says the upcoming expansion gives Townsville the largest military presence in the nation and brings into the city people with high disposable income. “It’s recession-proof money which has a flow-on effect through other parts of the local economy,” he said. It is projected that the preparatory work to expand ADO Townsville will generate $1.1bn of direct and indirect spending in the local economy. “While Defense Housing Australia has produced some additional stock, the combination of a delay and shortage in the on-barracks accommodation and an existing shortfall in the rental market present a golden opportunity for investors,” he says. “Those relocating will need to find a place to live by the end of 2011/12 and this will place big demand on the housing industry to meet this shortfall.”
