1,000 Acres of Opportunity
Address Available on Request Belli Park, QLD 4562
In the Noosa Hinterland just a half-hour’s drive from 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.
Just 40 minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast Airport, 35 minutes from Noosa and 1.5 hours from Brisbane, the property is well located in the Sunshine Coast Council area.
Sunshine Coast Council is implementing a strategic plan for business 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 but not limited to:
* Rural activity including commercial farming high-yield agriculture (exotic fruits, nuts, hemp, animal/intensive animal keeping or wholesale nursery)
* Processing and production of agricultural products
* Educational facility ancillary to rural activity on same site
* Tourism, hotel/leisure venture involving resort complex based on eco-tourism
* Outdoor sport and recreation facility (such as golf, equestrian, motor sport facility)
* Major electricity infrastructure and/or telecommunications facility including solar farm
* Potentially a mix of tourism with small acreage residential land subdivision (STCA)
The property has a water license for 80 acres of irrigation with approximately 1.5km of mains irrigation pipes underground, along with creeks and potential dam areas. There is also underground bore-suitable water.
From the 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 and everything in between.
The property has previously run 450 head of cattle with mixed cropping. There is also an estimated timber value of $3m (with building, fencing and pole material) should you wish to capitalise on this, rather than securing for offset value.
The property 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.
This is an extraordinary opportunity. Capitalise on existing infrastructure for commercial farming, redevelop as a tourism or mixed-use project, or land bank for substantial capital gain with future anticipated growth in the area.
