On the 2nd November 2020 Coast to Country Housing Company (C2C) merged with Regional Housing Limited (Regional Housing) creating Queensland’s largest regional Community Housing Provider.
As a result of the merger Regional Housing now manages a combined portfolio of over 1,000 crisis, transitional, and long term social and affordable housing properties throughout regional Queensland stretching from the Wide Bay Burnett region to Townsville and surrounding areas.
Now with almost 60 years of combined experience in delivering housing and related services to vulnerable Queenslanders, Regional Housing is in a strong position to take advantage of growth opportunities and expand its service delivery into more regional Queensland centres.
Regional Housing Limited’s CEO Brett Hanna is excited about what the merger means for regional Queensland communities.
“With our combined scale, resources and experience, we can better advocate for the needs of regional Queensland, making the most of growth opportunities to develop much needed housing and facilitate even better outcomes for vulnerable individuals and families throughout regional Queensland.”
Coast to Country Housing Company Chairperson Chris Barnes, echoed these sentiments.
“This merger ensures that essential services provided by Coast to Country will continue to be offered in North Queensland communities, retaining local jobs across the organisation and leveraging our combined skills and experience to further strengthen our person centred, place-based service offerings.”
Regional Housing will continue to trade as Coast to Country Housing in North Queensland, leveraging the combined systems and resources of both organisations to streamline service delivery and focus on quality to ensure the best possible outcomes for customers, stakeholders and the wider community.

I respect the fact that C2C staff have a professional ethic, and also that involves building a sense of community with tenants. The BBQs, the Christmas hampers, complement a readiness by staff to promptly attend to tenancy issues in a friendly, efficient way. From first to last, C2C has a culture of people first, and professional improvement. I’m more than happy to be a Coast to Country tenant.
Before coming to C2C, I had to leave the family home and didn’t want to go to a refuge – I had been to a refuge before and it was awful. I’ve lived in 3 units with C2C, and the one I am in now is long term. When I first came to C2C, they were extremely helpful, and went above and beyond. The staff were also someone I could talk to; they listened to my concerns and were comforting. I started with nothing, so gathering bits and bobs along the way is what has made my unit a home for me. The number one thing that has changed since having a home of my own is knowing that I’m safe. I know I can talk to someone at C2C if I’m having problems and if there are maintenance issues they will be fixed. For me, it comes down to safety. I’m so grateful for everything C2C has done to help me and others.
Being homeless was scary; I didn’t feel safe and didn’t know who to trust. It was a bad time for me. My home now is somewhere I can keep all of my stuff. I also love spending time with friends, and I can do that at home now too. It gets a bit hot in summer, but I have a roof over my head and somewhere I feel safe. I’m more secure now than ever, and glad I’m not on the streets any more.
