As far back as 5 years ago. A lot of the "experts" put a lot of regionals on their hot spots and their reasoning. Some of the areas i recall are Ballarat Bendigo Warnaambool Bathurst Goulburn Wagga Ignoring mining dependant cities. Even to me the fundamentals were and still are good. Have any of these areas done well? Given that we ve had a property boom across many states. If theae areas havenr moved much. Id say they were a dud pick by an "expert " Anyone else also recall what other areas were picked?
