A stone’s throw from the Rockhampton CBD, the small suburb of Allenstown was named for builder William Allen, a builder in the 1860s.

The centre of its commercial hub is the recently refurbished Allenstown Square shopping centre. There are also two primary schools here, namely, Allenstown State School, which was opened all the way back in 1887, and St Peter’s School. The suburb is quite rich in history as well, with a few heritage-listed sites including St Joseph’s Cathedral and South Rockhampton Cemetery.

Allenstown also houses three of Rockhampton’s seven Big Bull statues, which were built to emphasise Rockhampton’s reputation as Australia’s beef capital. However, house values have consistently been dropping since 2014, with the median price slipping below the $200,000 mark. While the rental yield is remarkably high at 7.6%, this could be a difficult market to work with.
