Ever imagined owning your own town?

Well, Monogorilby, the southeast Queensland town four hours inland from the Sunshine Coast was up for sale, then under offer, and the latest is it is now under contract.

The whole town, available through Sutton Nationwide Realty agent Julie Sutton was available for just $750,000.

Advertised as 'having it all', the purchase includes 16 houses, each with two, three or four bedrooms.

Some of home are currently tenanted, which will mean rental income straight away.

There are eight lowset and eight highset Queenslanders each with their own fenced back yards and Telstra connection.

There's a community town hall and an old school house which is surrounded by 16 hectares of groomed parkland.

A de-commissioned saw mill with timber framed open sheds, a water purification treatment plant and a three-phase power depot compete the town's building.

Julie suggests there's more space to build, perfect for a caravan park, conference centre or church.

The town is located about 270 kilometres northwest of Brisbane.

It's not the first time a town has sold.

The tourist ghost town Joadja Creek, 28 kilometres from Bowral in the Southern Highlands sold in 2011.

The mining town was abandoned in 1904 after shale-oil deposits dwindled, alongside competition from US imports.

It was first sold as grazing land over 100 years ago by Raine & Horne Sydney for £4400.

The village had been home to up to 1300 miners, mostly Scottish, and their families.

It consisted of mostly industrial ruins and workers' cottages, although an 1870s manager's homestead had been restored.
