f you've ever dreamed of living in a genuine Outback town you had better check out this opportunity quick-smart!
Welcome to Chillagoe, the Gateway to the Outback, a place that offers an active lifestyle away from the rat-race. Situated about 1.5 hours from Mareeba and 2.5 hours from Cairns, Chillagoe is an amazing destination that attracts visitors from all over the world.
Often described as an oasis in the Outback, this area has plenty going for it. It is blessed with a warm but humidity-free climate, for starters. Then there are the surroundings - the famous limestone caves, Mungana National Park, historical sites, Aboriginal rock paintings and 400 million year old fossils, as well as amazing flora and fauna.
The new owners can relax in their own separate two-bedroom residence, which boasts an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, three-bay lockable shed and two-bay parking shed. The property also includes four self-contained cabins and staff quarters. The staff quarters currently house a single bed but could easily accommodate a double.
The cabins are themed to reflect their historic surroundings, and are fully air-conditioned with an ensuite, kitchenette, TV and private courtyard.
- Cabin 1: 2 bedrooms – Queen & 2 single beds (wheelchair friendly)
- Cabin 2: Studio – Queen & trundle beds
- Cabin 3: Studio – Queen bed
- Cabin 4: Studio – Double & 1 single bed
Chillagoe Cabins are AAA-rated and known as the best accommodation in the area. Surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens brimming with wonderful wildlife and birdlife, there is also an undercover inground swimming pool, guest laundry and restaurant. The BYO restaurant serves breakfast and dinner when required but could definitely expand operating hours to include lunch as well. A tour bus is included to take guests to fantastic local attractions situated in and around Chillagoe.
Currently run by only one owner, there's plenty of scope to put your own mark on this unique opportunity. A partnership or husband & wife team could vastly expand the potential of Chillagoe Cabins.
As a lifestyle, this potential plus property with income is definitely a winner. This friendly community would be perfect for raising a family, with a primary school at your door, and a great climate in an area with no floods, no bushfires and no cyclones.
