Summary

We sold this island about 18 months ago and reluctantly the new owners have decided to sell and have determined that time is an issue for them, so they have requested that we place this great island back on the market.

The new owners have spent around $100,000.00 in the last 12 months on the island with new appliances, building material and Tractor as well as installing a new solar hot water system, the runway has had extensive manicuring and preparation for most single and twin aircraft. I spent some time on the island of late and unfortunately we had one of those inclement periods as can be seen in our new photo’s, a week later I’m told that the weather has cleared and looks like a purchased picture post card. The photos also show a very low tide as the high tide was in the evening, saying all that the island is ready for a new owner.

Temple island is located a few kilometers off the coast of Central Queensland, and is easy to get to as it boasts it’s own private airstrip, along with a 4 bedroom high set home.

 

This Island is extremely well priced for an exotic Island of this size. If nature is what you seek then this totally private 123 acre island with an 21.5 acre lease, just perfect with a rainforest and an abundance of orchids and exotic plants, the rest of the island is National Park with no visitations apart from the various birds that use the island as a retreat.

This very affordable Island has just come back on the market and I suggest if you are seeking that sea change or for that private family retreat, then this Island and property is worth inspecting.

Some of the most outstanding features apart from the views of this Island are the many great white sandy beaches as well as the undisturbed coral with oysters that you can eat directly off the rocks.

 

Whales have also been viewed from this aquatic oasis, as they pass in August and return South in September. Also inhabiting the Island are Sea Turtles, which nest in December, followed by hatchlings in January/February. Sights such as these are common on glorious Temple Island. The nearest Green Zone is 30 Km away, so fishing is abundant

There are a number of additional assets on the Island apart from the home; there is a new tractor and slasher, a Range Rover, ride on mower, new solar hot water system, generator 240 volts, a 4 meter boat with 30hp Yamaha motor, phone, large rainwater tanks, dam and a bore that has produced great water.

This very rare sensational property is leasehold. Negotiations with the DNRM leases can be negotiated 2 years out from their expiry. Access is easy via a light plane from Rockhampton or Mackay Airports, which are serviced by all the major domestic airlines into these two regional airports. Alternatively travel by boat from the mainland point of Ilbilbie off Cape Palmerston about an hour south from Mackay.
