About Dunworth Property

D&R Dunworth Pty Ltd is a specialist real estate advisory, investment, development and project management company. We source investment and development opportunities on behalf of retirement and investment funds and significant private clients, with a specific emphasis on building long-term relationships and maintaining confidentiality.
Real estate has been at the core of what we do since the company was founded in 1988 by David Dunworth. We now invest in the full spectrum of office, retail, warehouse, distribution facilities and factories, as well as mixed-use residential and showroom developments.
Our expertise and growing track record over the last 30 years has led us to capitalise on development opportunities for our clients, with a focus on achieving superior financial outcomes for their portfolios.
From the outset we have advised external owners on the development and investment process, guiding them from acquisition to final disposal. In recent years we have also acted very successfully as a commercial buyer’s agent in office, showroom, retail and industrial investments.

D&R Dunworth is based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and we operate Australia-wide, with a particular interest in Queensland, NSW and the Northern Territory.
