Young couple Tessa McDougall and Tom Hennessy have just purchased a block of land in Quilpie and will qualify for the $12,500 land grant.

In an out-of-the-box way of addressing the rural housing shortage, the Quilpie Shire Council has announced a new home owner grant underwritten by the council, which will give anyone who purchases a block of land in the shire the opportunity to have $12,500 reimbursed when they build and live in the new house for a minimum of six months.
