1,100 Acres of Opportunity
With its nearness to Noosa, Australia’s favourite holiday destination; a coastline of pristine beaches; a surrounding hinterland already famous for its gourmet dairy, olive and fruit produce and multiple tourist attractions, this is an exceptional ‘project parcel’ and a premium development opportunity.
Encapsulated across two freehold titles of 403.472ha and 41.48ha respectively, just 40 minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast Airport and 1.5 hours from Brisbane, the property is the largest available in the Sunshine Coast Council area.
Sunshine Coast Council is implementing a strategic plan for business, residential and tourism development, empowering economic growth and jobs creation through investment incentives and fast-tracking infrastructure and major projects.
The new medical precinct featuring two brand new hospitals and ancillary services, the expanding University of Sunshine Coast and planned upgrade of the Sunshine Coast Airport with the addition of a new runway and international flights, along with its proximity to the new Maroochydore Town Centre and Brisbane, underscore the potential for a parcel such as this.
The property’s position so close to Noosa and nearby hinterland towns of Eumundi, Cooroy and Kenilworth make it prospective for high-end tourism with agriculture and/or or mixed use development.
In the heart of the Sunshine Coast economic development zone it is subject to the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2009-2031 regulatory provisions which seek to support diversification of rural economies by allowing a range of activities, including:
* high-yield agriculture (exotic fruits, medicinal herbs, beef cattle)
* tourism venture
* small-scale industry and business activities (such as processing and production of agricultural products)
* community facilities including sport and recreation
* potentially a mix of the above with small acreage residential subdivision (STCA)
Bordered on one side by the Mary River and small acreage residential and hobby farm properties the other, the property has a water license with 80 acres previously under irrigation with more than 1.5km of pipe underground, along with creeks and potential dam areas. There is also underground bore-suitable water.
From the Mary River flats of fertile black soil the land rises to gently undulating grassed paddocks and then up again to a hillside of volcanic soil and up to a heavily timbered ridge, with spectacular views over the surrounding district to Mount Cooroora (Pomona), the sand blow on the North Shore, Mount Cooroy, Mount Eewah and everything in between.
The property, named Beulah Springs, enjoys its place in local history and has been farmed for 40+ years by the current owner, who still lives in the 115-year-old cottage.
Its location and size along with connected power and access to water, offers the buyer a significant opportunity under a pro-development council.
