Australians who want to live in a house without paying an enormous mortgage deposit upfront can move to a regional area where prices are still under $200,000.

 A worker earning an average, full-time salary of $90,300 a year has no hope of having a home with a backyard in Sydney or Melbourne a middle-distance from the city where prices are typically in the seven figures.

That dream is becoming harder to achieve in Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart which are now among the world's most expensive property markets.

Those who are allowed to work remotely from home and keep their salary have more options in coastal, provincial areas of central Queensland.

The Isaac local government area, between Mackay and Rockhampton, has a median home price of $226,250, CoreLogic data showed.

An average salary earner putting away a fifth of their salary, or $18,065, would be able to save for a mortgage deposit in two years and six months.

That's a far cry from Sydney, where it would take 14 years and six months to save up $262,328 to have a 20 per cent deposit on a median-price $1.312million house.

A house at Marlborough, 105km north-west of Rockhampton, is on the market for $170,000.

A 20 per cent deposit of $34,000 could be achieved in less than two years. 

A few hours' drive south of Rockhampton, the Banana shire council has a median property price of $190,000.
