Given the location, surrounded by banana plantations, and so close to Cairns, the vendor believes the rear section of the property would make an excellent backpackers lodge (subject to council approval).
There is an influx of backpackers at harvest time, and limited places for them to stay, giving a smart buyer a captive audience.
The hotel mini bus, used to pick up and drop off patrons, could also be used to transport backpackers to and from work.
After five years, the current owner is ready for a holiday, and is offering the business for sale leasehold or freehold. So, if you're keen to experience the tropics, now is the time to act!
