Stake your claim on Ella Bay - the hidden jewel of Queensland's tropical north

Ella Bay, located just 90 minutes south of Cairns International Airport (15 minutes by helicopter), is a 1269-acre tropical oasis just waiting for a truly visionary buyer.

Bounded by the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area on the landward side, and fronting the stunning Coral Sea with access to the Great Barrier Reef, this pristine piece of Queensland's tropical north offers the ultimate in seclusion for those looking to retreat from the pace of our modern world.

Ella Bay is a prime candidate for development as a world class master-planned resort and residential community, serving the booming eco-tourism and lifestyle market. Nearby Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef are the fastest growing Australian destinations for Asia-based travelers, with flight times from key Asian cities, like Singapore, Tokyo and Osaka of between 7 and 8 hours. Other international departure points, like Auckland, are also within an easy flight time to Cairns International Airport.

Preliminary approvals across two titles

Ella Bay comprises two titles, broken up into five development stages. Stage 1, 'Little Cove', and Stages 2-5, the 'Ella Bay Integrated Resort'. Both titles have approvals in place that offer a level of flexibility for developing the site.

The Little Cove site allows for a 30-unit eco-tourism resort, and 70 self-contained houses. The Ella Bay Integrated Resort site is approved for 3 resort precincts and 4 residential precincts with 890 hotel rooms and villas, 610 residences, a village precinct, and a recreation precinct incorporating an 18-hole championship golf course and country club.

Together, Little Cove and Ella Bay Integrated Resort offer a truly multi-faceted and dynamic hub for relaxation and exploration - for nature lovers, leisure seekers, and discerning residents.

Government oversight

Declared a significant/coordinated project, approvals for the 'Ella Bay Integrated Resort Development' site are managed by the Queensland State Coordinator General. The project has approvals from the Queensland State and Australian Commonwealth governments, as well as the local government. These approvals offer flexibility within the scope of the master plan, which incorporates stages 2 - 5 of the site as a major tourism zone.

Make your mark amid World Heritage beauty

Representing world-class ecological and sustainable development, Ella Bay represents the chance to build an inter-generational legacy, fostering a connection with and understanding of nature, and the riches of Queensland's tropical north, to an international market.
