Description: Global travel industry visionary Sir Mike Gooley's idea to create a world-class portfolio came to life after crafting an exclusive and luxurious getaway nestled amongst the tranquil surrounds of the Daintree Rainforest. Embodying the essence of Tropical North Queensland, Sir Mike has purposefully built a successful portfolio to incorporate properties rich in nature and natural beauty and is driven by the dream to present them to the rest of the world.
Bounded by two UNESCO World Heritage Listed destinations, the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, Sir Mike created an eco-friendly lodge that has been thoughtfully designed and curated to sit lightly on the lush tropical landscape, leaving a minimal footprint on the surrounding natural amenity.
Operated under the banner of 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World' and awarded 'The World's Best Remote Hotel' by Forbes Magazine, the Bloomfield Wilderness Lodge offered an eco-friendly splash of luxury where guests can vacation and experience an exclusivity seldom found. Opening the magic of the Daintree Rainforest up to the rest of the world, the lodge provides guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in ambience and serene seclusion.
Encapsulated by the rainforest and the shores of historic Weary Bay in Cape Tribulation, this hidden gem is perched on a secluded 2.90Ha* of freehold land surrounded by National Park. Access is by boat or helicopter, creating the ultimate sense of solitude and relaxation for its guests.
The property incorporates a luxury escape with mind to the natural environment, minimising the development footprint to blend in with its incredible surrounds. The 17 private guest suites have been designed to provide a mix of accommodation styles, with a private alfresco style restaurant and bar, sizeable swimming pool and fitness centre. Positioned on the cusp of the Great Barrier Reef, the lodge enjoys over 500m of water frontage and postcard views across the Coral Sea.
Originally conceived to be an exclusive fishing lodge, the lodge is perched on the doorstep of a hub of reef and estuarine recreational and fishing grounds. Guests can immerse themselves in the world-renowned beauty of the Great Barrier Reef marine life by finding nemo in the mesmerising sea anemones, swimming with turtles through natural ocean caves or relaxing with the vibrant maori wrasse in the stunning coral gardens. Fishing is also a must for the adventurous guests with a magnitude of sought-after species found in the immediate area including Spanish mackerel, tuna, cod and trout.
Complementing the Wilderness Lodge and included in the sale, is the holding known as "Port Bloomfield." Perched along the banks of the scenic Bloomfield River, guests can embark on their journey to the secluded lodge via boat from the shores of Port Bloomfield. Embracing the wild backdrop, the journey from Port Bloomfield to the Wilderness Lodge immerses guests in the natural surrounds exciting them for their arrival on the shores of Weary Bay.
This unique holding offers the opportunity to own a slice of North Queensland's iconic landscape. The Bloomfield Wilderness Lodge and Port Bloomfield are being offered to the market for sale by Formal Offer.
