|No words could ever do justice to the magic & natural
beauty of this 102 acre property that runs along the top of Mt. Tamborine's eastern escarpment.
Little wonder then that it has been frequently used for scenery in a number of well known
films including Beastmaster & Kokoda. Yes, areas of this landscape made it possible
to create a setting as wild & beautiful as the Kokoda Trail!
Yet, it comprises so much more than just magnificent rainforest, waterfalls, deep pools & grand
vistas! It also includes:
- Lush open pastures with fenced paddocks for cattle as well as cattle yards
- The most
adorable 1 bedroom log cabin with all amenities including
excellent kitchen, spa tub & huge
outdoor living (built for a movie set & now the owners’ permanent home)
water feature garden around the log cabin
- Glorious walking
trails following old log snigging tracks
- View to the northern
end of the Gold Coast
- Unbelievable vistas along & over Guanaba Gorge from certain
- Rainforest fringed creeks with water so clear
you can count the pebbles & so still that you can see your own reflection
- A couple
of excellent helicopter landing sites
All this magic is set against a backdrop of virgin palm rainforest resplendent with
great Hoop Pines, Red Cedars & Strangler Figs standing proud over the canopy. Untold
numbers of rare birds & native fauna call this entire property home.
Undoubtedly, there will always be demand for this land as a movie setting, yet it also
offers other opportunities to be more than a private family retreat. While no application
for development has been submitted, there seems to be general agreement that some form
of subdued tourism is its future. Thoughts include traditional log cabin accommodation,
small conventions, weddings & the like.
The magnificence & size of the property seems to also suggest a genuine small 6
star resort for international tourists. With O'Reilly's Lamington National Park Resort
now overrun with day trippers, this property would offer an excellent alternative venue
for a low key, high comfort tourist experience far removed from the crowded experience
available at Lamington National Park.
As I said, words can not describe all that is here! So please look at the extensive
Virtual Tour to see many more images that will haunt your mind until you can dream of
nothing else. Once you have actually explored this property you would rob a bank to
