ZONED SPECIAL FACILITIES: 2.28 Hectares With Home, Restaurant & Wine License, Approval for 6 Cabins & MoreThe Council Approvals in place on this 2.28 Hectare property offer boundless opportunities for people with the imagination and commercial skills to take it from where it is now to where it should be as an exciting income producing business. There are options here which can be exploited together or separately. The restaurant needs a focus. That could be given to it simply by finding the right chef. That focus could also come from turning it to a rainforest teahouse with some of the ambience of "The Big Avocado" located south of the border. It could easily be incorporated with some form of specialist flower growing / nursery / fruit production facility with a concentration of combining plant and product sales with food and wine sales. The custard apple orchard does suggest an idea here, as this is one of the few areas on Mt. Tamborine where custard apples can be grown and there is adequate water supply for such a venture.
The land here is the best possible red volcanic soil, so rich that it would be only a slight exaggeration to say that, "you could grow plastic flowers here"! Rainforest trees, palms and tree ferns thrive in this environment with its sunny easterly aspect and gentle drainage slope, as do pecan and macadamia nuts as well as many variety of fruits including citrus trees. The underlying natural water supply to the bore originates from a spring near Lahey Lookout. Hydrologists suggest that the spring is fed from somewhere over in the Great Dividing Range, possibly near Cunningham's Gap. That outflow from the spring has never been known to dry up although its surface water can shrink back a bit in times of severe local drought, both Guanaba Creek which it feeds and the underground supply just keeps on flowing to eventually fall off the eastern edge of the Mountain in a waterfall just to the east of St. Bernards Hotel.
The tourist cabin approval fits in well with the above options as the cabins are designated to be established up towards the front of the property, leaving the back portion of the land free for productive horticultural development. Although there are already a wide variety of tourist accommodation options on Mt. Tamborine, there seems to be an ever growing demand for short term accommodation with people seeking both longer term and single night stays. When a facility offers something more than just accommodation, e.g. an on site cafe / restaurant or an opportunity to explore through fruits, plants or flowers, the demand seems to be at its best.
The sellers have had plans drawn up to turn the restaurant into a home and maybe later converting the 18 square brick home into a duplex. That would suggest specialising in the accommodation side, should a buyer prefer that path.
As suggested above, the opportunities and options here are many and varied. It needs an entrepreneurial person or family to see and decide between the choices available and to take full advantage of the rare zoning as well as the variety of Council Approvals in place. Opportunities like this where you are able to stamp your own style on a tourist development site are as scarce as hen's teeth in this very high level tourism environment which is close to both the Gold Coast and Brisbane and madly beloved by day trippers as well as "stay trippers" who come to relax here for a night, a weekend, a week or even longer. With a bit of careful thought and planning, you could also probably integrate this property into the massive wedding market that already exists here.
