ATHERTON
Far North Queensland, QLD
Conservationists, Educators, Entrepreneurs - Innovation awaits your imagination
A rare opportunity to purchase freehold land, including the critically endangered Mabi Forest on the wonderful Atherton Tableland. The unique value of this property is to buy such a significant patch of biodiversity where you can ensure its protection for the long term.

This original forest left as ‘scrub’ because of its rocky, wild nature unsuitable for cropping and so was never cleared for agriculture in “the old days”.

You can enjoy and protect for yourself and your family assets in the knowledge literally at your backdoor would be this rare flora and fauna. Build your own brilliant eco home on the 6ha of cleared land to match important conservation activities. Enjoy planting your veggies and orchard in one of the most productive areas of the Atherton Tabeland.

The land supports a high density of Tree kangaroos and Green Tree possums.

If of interest horticulture may be considered with the high rainfall and great soils.

If you wish to be more enterprising, The Nature Refuge Agreement will allow for some level of nature-based tourism possibly with accommodation or research, education, detourism, including, within the forest, walking tracks, viewing platforms, small shelters, seating & interpretive signage.

The mammal (nocturnal) wildlife is so significant it avails plenty of opportunity to showcase Australian rainforest wildlife.

Innovation awaits your imagination.

Estimates are that only 10% of this Class 5B rainforest and so with a total of 33 ha this is a significant conservation property.

The Queensland Government and the owner of the property have already supported the development of tourism concepts for the property. Onsite businesses that support the presentation and preservation within such close proximity of the tourist route of The Atherton Tabeland/The Great Barrier Reef/Cairns are enormous.

This privately held rainforest has similar ecology to that of the well-established local tourist attractions already at Millaa Falls, Curtain Fig Tree, Cathedral Fig and the Crater Lakes. So to complement and expand local activities awaits your energy and commitment .
