2. Property Highlights


This RARE 2ha/5 acre property is offered for sale with an existing dual income from two separate houses (3 bedroom home & 4 bedroom home, rental return of 960wk*), plus the potential for a modular workers accommodation development or residential subdivision, subject to Council approval (STCA). Other potential uses for the site (STCA) could include a caravan park, tourist park, retirement, manufactured home park, or self-storage sheds.

Located just 2km north of Mareeba's CBD (walking distance to shops) and next door to the Cape Gateway Motel with a restaurant open to the public, this 2ha / 5 acre property is relatively flat, with approx. 1ha cleared to the front boasting highway frontage.  

Mareeba is located about 60kms (1 hour drive) from Cairns, and is the 6th fastest growing local government area in Queensland, and the largest town outside of Cairns in the Far North. The Mareeba Shire is one of the largest fruit producing regions in Australia. The current housing crisis is especially evident in the Mareeba and the Tablelands area, with vacancy rates at an all time low of 0.33%.  

There is not currently a purpose-built worker’s accommodation facility open to the public available in Mareeba. Discussions have been held with local farms and workforce providers who have confirmed the immediate accommodation requirement for 100+ workers. 

All town services are available and pre-lodgement discussions have been held with Council & SARA (TMR) for a potential 104-room workers accommodation development* on the property, which have both been encouraging.  

The property could also be potentially subdivided into smaller residential lots*. Zoned Emerging Community, this property offers unlimited opportunities for a saavy investor or developer. This is also a great opportunity to land bank for the future, with the benefit of an existing dual income.
