Located in the heart of the Gold Coast hinterland wine country and the Scenic Rim tourism area, this is a unique holiday park, caravan park and camping ground - which provides lifestyle plus income. This is a business opportunity which has become available because the present owners have decided to retire.
The business would be either a great start for one seeking to enter the accomodation or tourist industry, or for a buyer with a desire to both maintain an income as well as enjoy the benefits of the Queensland climate.
The property is a one hour to two hour's drive from Brisbane or the Gold Coast; and descends from mountains to the best water skiing and fishing lake in Queensland: providing guests with a variety of bush scenery, orienteering, bushland trails and rock climbing, as well as wild-life, magnificent views, and a wide range of water based activities.
Day to day operations are not full-on 7 days per week. Except for peak periods such as Christmas, Easter and public holidays, bookings are mainly for weekends: with guests arriving on a Friday and departing on a Sunday. The guest booking and payment system is on-line and virtually labour free (enabling the park to be operated and managed from any location); permitting the present owners to enjoy a good income as well as a relaxed life-style.
The holiday park comprises two large Queenslander homesteads (each of which can sleep up to 17 guests), plus caretaker's flat, donga, camp kitchen, camp showers and toilets, and a new modern motel unit or cabin - plus numerous and very large powered and unpowered camping sites. There is a very large modern storage shed, as well as a shop or kiosk (which is not operated by the present owners but which can easily be re-stocked should a new owner wish to do so). The inventory encompasses all items on the property: from china and homestead furnishings, through to ladders and lawnmowers, etc.
The rapid growth of nearby suburbs and towns - Ipswich, Beaudesert, Canungra, and Jimboomba - has had a direct and steadily increasing impact on this tourist and recreational business. The rising numbers of guests are a practical demonstration that this is certainly a tourist or holiday business proposition offering the opportunity to make serious money should a buyer opt to work a full working week. The return on investment both present and future which is associated with this freehold is by any comparison quite unparalleled. The returns are excellent, especially when one considers that for most of the years they have owned the property the present owners have only ever worked a two day week.
In 2012 a Development Approval was issued for the subdivision of 100 cabins. The present owners have kept the plans and all relevant paperwork associated with the proposed development, but have never proceeded with the project. However, the possibility is obviously there for a development of this nature, should some sort of project along these lines be of interest to a future owner.
