Why might telecommuting really transform places like Airlie Beach?

Updated: Sep 9, 2019

This post was prompted by reading an article entitled 'How telecommuting is changing Australia's housing market' (27 August 2019).


I believe the growing trend towards telecommuting may well impact on the Whitsundays region more significantly than other places - particularly with regards to real estate values - largely because of a combination of good accessibility (despite its relative remoteness), climate and physical attractiveness.


With regards to the first point, note that Airlie Beach has three airports within an hour and a half's drive (Mackay, Proserpine and Hamilton Island), and is but a small detour from Australia's main highway and its parallel railway line.
