Wyong offers a number of opportunities for investors on a budget. Some 90km north of Sydney and surrounded on one side by the Tuggerah Lake, this regional NSW hub stills offers the possibility of finding deals around the $300,000 mark. 

Located on Tuggerah Lake’s eastern side, Wyong is also 70km south of Newcastle, with train services making Sydney within one hour and 45 minutes reach and Newcastle accessible within an hour. 

The suburb is well-equipped with amenities. Tuggerah Westfield shopping centre is 4km south of Wyong, and has 260 stores and an eight-screen Greater Union cinema. Wyong also has a public hospital (8km north-east of the CBD) and the Central Coast campus of the University of Newcastle is located in nearby Ourimbah (13km away). 

“Around town there are some really good deals,” says Steve Hands, Professionals Wyong principal. “You can still buy a three-bedroom home under the $300,000-mark. There are riverfronts in our district that are selling for $150,000 less than what they were five years ago, so there’s a huge opportunity there.”
