The peaceful, picturesque rural community of Peachester located on the eastern slope of Conondale Range, just 10 minutes to Beerwah’s major amenities including rail to Brisbane, has become a desirable place for families and retirees alike to escape the hustle and bustle of suburbia and the busy coastal strip, whilst still just 40 minutes to Caloundra’s stunning beaches.
Named Peachester after the town was surveyed in 1888; the name is thought to refer to the peach trees which were growing at the river crossing. Early industries included dairying, fruit growing, and timber felling for the Grigor sawmill.
A highly-regarded primary school, plus convenience store are the two main amenities at Peachester; in addition to its close proximity to Beerwah, the townships of Maleny and Woodford are both approximately 20 minutes’ drive – so residents can enjoy a genuine country lifestyle without sacrificing access to education, commercial, retail, medical, and leisure facilities.
As the coastal strip continues prolific development with a focus on high density living; there is still an appetite from a portion of the market for large blocks/small-medium acreage living, where your privacy is protected, the natural environment preserved, and the pace of life is slower. The development footprint across this area is tight, restricting development on the scale seen in the hinterland railway towns and the coast – this has worked in Peachester’s favour, keeping the future looking green and serene!
It is anticipated that demand for small idyllic rural communities like this, still just half an hour from the coast will soar in coming years pushing upward pressure on price; making Peachester not only a delightful place to call home but a solid investment as well.
