New Farm ranked first on the scale with a rate of 72.87%, followed by Teneriffe (67.01%), Chandler (66.83%) and Ascot (61.80%).

John Edwards, Consulting Analyst for, said:

“It’s great to see so many of Queensland’s suburbs demonstrate growth and wealth within the property market. Despite coming in sixth on the national state-level scale, the fact that suburbs such as New Farm hosts 72.87% of houses with a minimum million-dollar price tag is very reassuring to Queensland residents.”

“Based on our findings, we expect to see new suburbs emerge as millionaire property hotspots over the coming year.

It was interesting to note that New Farm also topped the chart as the suburb with the largest increase in million dollar properties over the last 12 months, with Bulimba coming in third – while the up-and-coming areas of Paddington, Surfers Paradise and Bardon made up the remainder of the Top Five.”

“With Australian values at a high, many more properties are breaking through into the exclusive ‘millionaire’s club’.

The fact is, many Australians are unaware of their property’s current value and their new status as ‘property millionaire’.

While this latest data has revealed Queensland’s most exclusive ‘millionaire rows’ – it’s interesting to note that these streets are not only confined to suburbs that head up the rich list.”
