Forrest Family Practice

120-122 Spencer Street, South Bunbury, Western Australia

The Forrest Family Practice is a multi-purpose medical asset located in the fast-growing regional centre of Bunbury in Western Australia. The asset provides a strong blue-chip income stream being fully leased to national healthcare provider, ForHealth, with a robust WALE of 7.39 years.

The strategy for the asset is to capitalise on a counter cyclical opportunity at what we believe is the bottom of the cycle for Australia’s sought-after medical sector.

This sector continues to show strong growth fundamentals, underpinned by the tightly held nature of specialist medical assets, high replacement costs, and rising demand off the back of increased capital investment into the industry.

The Centre is set to have a four-year lease term remaining at Fund expiry, providing for a strong divestment strategy to capture market conditions. In addition, there is potential to enhance the asset’s value further through minor cosmetic upgrades to encourage longer-term commitment from the tenant, which we intend to explore as part of our value-add negotiations.
