Welcome back to our popular series, FHBA New Homes of the Week. In this weekly series we highlight 5 First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) eligible homes suitable for first home buyers.

With Australia Day falling this week we thought we’d make our first edition of 2017 dedicated to an Australia Day theme. Australia Day is when Aussies choose to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. On Australia Day there a certain things everyone loves to do to celebrate Australia, our culture and have a good time, whether that be a BBQ at home or in a local park, swimming in your own pool or at the beach or playing cricket in your backyard. Our top 5 homes this week, allow you to enjoy some of these activities in or near your OWN first home!

Is it time you got your own home to celebrate future Australia Day’s in?
