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.
Contributing to the success of the portfolio, Mount Louis Cattle Station is set against the scenic backdrop of Mount Louise and Mount Annie, just a short 10km* from the township of Bloomfield. Positioned in arguably the most fertile and picturesque coastal location, the station is rich in history, and has been developed into not only a farming enterprise but also includes a luxurious station guest homestead designed as a rural escape for those wanting to enjoy everything far North Queensland has to offer.
Incorporating an area of 1,256.01Ha* of freehold land, Mt Louis Station includes the original 4 bedroom homestead to the northwest of the property as well as operational improvements including workers accommodation, machinery sheds, cattle yards, laneways, waterways and improved pastures.
Mt Louis also provides a private 1100m bituminised airstrip and terminal used to ferry guests from Cairns or Port Douglas.
Completing the portfolio, is Laura Valley Station. Strategically positioned with water access, the Laura Valley Station is dissected by the Laura River, approximately 100km* west of Mount Louis Station. The property incorporates 3,118Ha* of open flat to undulating and lightly forested land within a recognised agricultural area.
Equipped with all the essentials for a successful cattle operation, the property has benefitted from over half a million dollars in improvements including newly constructed steel cattle yards, farm-style ensuited accommodation, machinery shed and fencing.
These impressive holdings present the unique opportunity to acquire a portfolio of diverse properties in some of tropical North Queensland's most iconic and picturesque destinations. The portfolio is for sale in principally one line with individual or grouped offers considered.
Expressions of interest close Thursday 1 December at 4pm.
