Investing in Crows Nest

Crows Nest has become the ideal destination for people to escape the hustle and bustle of cities to enjoy a genuine tree change. The undulating countryside is known for its high country vistas and its proximity to delightful National Parks, walking trails and waterfalls. Crows Nest is very popular with day trippers and easily accessible from major centres for short breaks. Fertile grazing country, together with very reasonable property prices, make it an excellent place to grow a business.            

Opportunities

Crows Nest is strategically positioned along the New England Highway with an average of 3000 vehicles passing through per day. With the town recently declaring motorcycle friendly status and seeking to become an RV Friendly town, Crows Nest is well suited to small and mid-size retail outlets, professional services, over 50s lifestyle living, tourism and manufacturing.

The town’s location on the crest of the Great Dividing Range naturally lends itself to adventure tourism with many nature based activities already popular with local residents and visitors.
