95 years of Frasers Property Australia

Live Proud Spring Summer 2019

We've been creating proud communities since 1924, and we're just getting started. Here are a few highlights from the last 95 years of Frasers Property Australia.

 It all started with Noosa

Our first land purchase was 625 acres of land in Noosa, QLD. We began developing the Noosa area in 1927 as T.M Burke’s first major project, creating a new seaside city and one of Australia’s favorite beach destinations.

A rose by any other name
Over our 95 year history, Frasers Property Australia has been known by many different names. Our history and heritage includes the projects of T.M Burke during the 1920s and
1930s, Hooker Corporation in the 1960s, Australand from the 1980s to the mid 2010s, and today as Frasers Property Australia.

139,000 down, thousands more to go.
Since the founding of T.M. Burke in 1924, Frasers Property Australia has developed more than 139,000 homes in Australia. Not to mention thousands of other exciting retail, commercial and industrial projects.

Transforming the NSW South Coast
We’re building the largest coastal tourist/residential development ever initiated by a Local Government Authority in Australia. Shell Cove, a joint venture with Shellharbour Council includes over 3,000 residences and a 270‑berth marina. It’s a community more than 30 years in the making, now in its final stages of construction.

Beyond bricks & mortar
We understand that communities are made great by the people that call them home. That’s why we invest in longterm community growth by allocating a dedicated Community Development Manager for every new community.

We’re pioneering the use of geothermal tech in residential developments
Our Fairwater community in Sydney’s West is home to the largest residential installation of geothermal heating and cooling in the Southern Hemisphere. Similar technology is also being rolled out at other communities around the country.

Discovery Point makes waves
In 2016, Discovery Point, NSW took home the UDIA awards for excellence in both the Masterplanned Development and Mixed-Use Development categories.

Sydney’s new downtown
One Central Park was named as one of the 50 most influential tall buildings of the last 50 years by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

We’re aiming to build the world’s most sustainable shopping centre
At our Burwood Brickworks community in VIC, we’ve set ourselves the ambitious goal to do something that’s never been done anywhere before – to design and build a shopping centre that achieves the world’s strictest environmentally-friendly certification: The Living Building Challenge™ (LBC). The Burwood Brickworks retail precinct is due for completion in December 2019.

Global in scale, local at heart

Frasers Property Australia is part of Frasers Property Ltd, a leading developer with operations in 80 cities globally, and 5,500 staff around the world.
