EVER wanted to own your own piece of country paradise?

Well this is your chance because Top of the Town Tourist Park is expanding with 80-specially designed bungalows on 20 acres.

Owner David Marks said it was a project they were excited about and one the council had been supportive of.

"We will be working with the builders to maintain the landscape and designed the bungalows to be in harmony with nature," Mr Marks said.

"An example of what is on offer is a two-bedroom, two bathroom, three-metre- high-ceiling bungalow which will cost around $173,000.

"The price then varies depending on the finishes."

Duffy Constructions Qld director Joseph Duffy said money from the development would benefit the town.

"We will be using local sub-contractors for things like plumbing, sewerage and finishes etc with at least 30% of the total building costs spent locally," Mr Duffy said.

Exclusive selling agent Crisp Real Estate principal Norman Crisp said investors were welcome to use the bungalows as permanent residences, rental properties or holiday homes.

"The plan is to have the first display bungalow up before Christmas," Mr Crisp said.

"The investors would own the bungalow, the terms of agreement secure it so it can't be moved, and they pay land rental."

Park facilities including a pool and outdoor cinema will be available for bungalow users. Anyone interested should phone Norman Crisp at Crisp Real Estate on 46812177.
