Creative ideas for younger Australians to invest in property

Dig up your forgotten fortune

In 1930, Harold Bell Lasseter claimed that when three decades earlier he rode on horseback from Queensland to the West Australian goldfields, he stumbled across a huge gold reef.

Post Budget, what to do now

Well the 2016 Budget has been delivered, so what should we be doing regarding the changes to super?
