Atherton, Qld 4883


A significant patch of biodiversity awaits your imagination

House - Atherton Qld

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 Tableland. With the high rainfall and great soils, you may be able to carry out a horticultural venture.

The land supports a high density of tree kangaroos and green tree possums.

For the enterprising, The Nature Refuge Agreement will allow for some level of nature-based tourism, possibly with accommodation or research, education and detourism within the forest; walking tracks, viewing platforms, small shelters, seating and interpretive signage.The mammal (nocturnal) wildlife is so significant it avails plenty of opportunity to showcase Australian rainforest wildlife. Estimates are that there is only 10% of this Class 5B rainforest, 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 Tableland/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. Complementing and expanding on local activities awaits your energy and commitment.

Innovation awaits your imagination.
