2. Property Highlights

Unique opportunity for an astute developer or investor to participate in one of North Queensland's most exciting growth region
  • 17,973m2* of prime development site located in the centre of Cooktown
  • Rare vacant land size suitable for large scale commercial/mixed-use developments^
  • Offers considered for the whole site or parcels (consisting of freehold lots)

Quant Commercial in conjunction with Remax U/Q Commercial has the privilege to offer to market a rare opportunity to own parcels of freehold adjoining land in the heart of Cooktown.  

The 1.7973 Ha (17,973m2*) of ‘Centre zone’ development land is located at 85 Charlotte Street. Offers will be considered for the whole site or parcels (consisting of freehold lots). 

The vision for the development of the site allows for flexibility with lot configurations and sizing while promoting a mix of residential and holiday accommodation, retail and commercial, community, leisure and entertainment; many specific uses are supported by Cook Shire Council on a Code only application^. 

The development land is unimproved, relatively flat though slightly elevated, and enjoys over 170 meters of main street frontage. The rear on Adelaide Street faces the site emarked for the proposed marina precinct, and boasts direct access to the pathways linking to the foreshore esplanade. Under the reigning town planning scheme multistorey builds are permitted, opening up possibilities for enviable water views of the Coral Sea and the Endeavour River Harbour.  

Cooktown is the gateway to the Cape York landscape and tourism, the northern most point of Australia’s Wet Tropics and World Heritage Area, and is accessible by land, air and sea. The immediate surrounding areas are globally renowned fishing (Marlin), diving and lifestyle destinations. It is the closest mainland town to the Great Barrier (inner Reefs only 20 minutes by boat), the spectacular northernmost outer Reefs, and heritage listed Lizard Island; all accessible via chartered flights & boats operating out of Cooktown. The Airport in Cooktown is less than 15 minutes drive from the town centre; there are scheduled flights running daily to Cairns plus significant capacity to expand avaition operations.  

The local economy is growing and supported by tourism, state and federal government employment agencies, the farming and horticulture industry, and several mining operations. The town is the administrative and commercial hub for much of the Cape York Peninsula with major regional communities using it as a service center (for Airport, Hospital, Schools, Businesses, Retail, and Hospitality amenities).

The Cook Shire Council has recently adopted a proactive new policy aimed at increasing housing developments and new home builds in the region. It is also undertaking several redevelopment projects to extend the main centre, foreshore and wharf precincts to meet the broadening economic needs of the area.

Cooktown is only 3 hours from Port Douglas by car and 45 minutes from Cairns by air. It represents an exciting prospect for any potential developer or investor seeking opportunities in the emerging North Queensland corridor.
