    I was going to do a poll but there is a cap on the number of options.

    From the below; what do you consider the best investment locations (for capital gains) over the next two to three years? (these are Australia's most populous cities/regions)
    • Sydney
    • Melbourne
    • Brisbane
    • Adelaide
    • Perth
    • Canberra
    • Gold Coast-Tweed Heads
    • Newcastle-Maitland
    • Sunshine Coast
    • Wollongong
    • Geelong
    • Townsville
    • Cairns
    • Toowoomba
    • Ballarat
    • Bendigo
    • Albury-Wodonga
    • Mackay
    • Rockhampton
    • Bundaberg
    • Other
    I'm not in a position to buy for a long while yet, but I'm curious where the sentiment currently lies.

    Purely based on discussions here and on Somersoft I'm guessing Brisbane will be the stand out. It sounds like Sydney might have a little steam left in the tank (who knows how much though). I've heard murmurings about Newcastle and Gold Coast.

    What do you think?

    Australia's most populous?
    Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, etc all have more population than half those places listed.

    Brisbane, but I'm biased.

    In order of preference:

    1. Sydney
    2. Brisbane
    3. Melbourne

    Am not an expert investor though. Just getting started :)

    Brisbane and Adelaide, Gold Coast/ Sunny Coast. There may be a little left in Sydney but you would be playing with Fire.
    Melbourne I have no idea?

    Sydney and Melbourne may still have growth over the next two years but after that it could well be flat or negative for quite a while.
    I would put my money on Adelaide and Brisbane but my sleeper pick would be Townsville to get some life. It has been flat there for years now. Ripple effect from Cairns and Brisbane....

    Toowoomba, Townsville, Mackay, Cairns, Rockhampton. Nowhere mining related.
    Regional NSW - but agree that the horse has bolted anywhere within 150km of Sydney.

    Are the above in order with Frankston, number 1? Why Frankston when there are better Melbourne suburbs?

    You have to take this with a grain of salt - I have a property there. But yes, I think Melbourne will get hot -still not even 7 years since the last boom. Melbourne is a dark horse which defies logical rational projections.

    +1 I'm interested to hear why people are suggesting Adelaide.

    Pete Wargent (economics writer) regularly takes the opportunity to point out the dangers of investing there. Macroeconomically it has some big challenges (lack of big projects/brain drain/declining car industry etc.). What do people think will lift Adelaide prices moreso than other regions?

    Probably the differentials are just too big. Just like Brisbane. Economically Brisbane isn't doing great either but when houses in the best parts of town were going for 500k (18 months ago) something has to give.
