Islander paradise in Noosa

Noosa has come a long way in the last 50 years, transforming from an isolated fishing village to one of Australia's favourite destinations

The Islander Resort on Gympie Terrace, Noosaville is a landmark property in an area that has become one of Australia’s premier tourist destinations.

The Islander represents a golden management rights opportunity that will give a strong return on investment, as well as provide an idyllic Noosa work-lifestyle balance.

Located across from the Noosa River, The Islander is fully staffed giving new operators the ability to decide their own working hours.

All the hard work has been done by the current managers, who have spent the last 20 years fine-tuning the business with procedural systems and getting staffing to the point where the resort runs like a well-oiled machine.

One of the reasons for the popularity of Noosa Heads is that it is one of the few north-facing beaches on Australia’s east coast, hence Noosa Beach is relatively protected from the prevailing on-shore wind and from storms.

John Petralia, from Ray White Commercial Noosa, said The Islander was located in the heart of Noosa and only a few steps away from the Noosa River Foreshore and Park for boating, relaxing, and picnics.

It is a stroll away from the shops, cafes, and bars, and just a short drive or ferry trip to patrolled surf beaches, Hastings Street, and the Noosa National Park.

Resort facilities include two tennis courts, three pools, including one that’s heated, two spas, two saunas, a gym, BBQs, a clubhouse, and a games room.

“It’s a great property,” Mr Petralia said. “It’s built on 1.57 hectares, has 87 lots and there are 21.5 years remaining on the lease.

“There is a reception/office and manager’s unit. The two-bedroom residence has a north-facing balcony with views of the Noosa River and an exclusive use 15 square metre lock-up garage. The unit is valued at $1.1m.”

Noosaville is a relaxing holiday spot with glorious water views of the Noosa River that winds through its heart past shady trees and picnic spots along two kilometres of grassy foreshore.

Captain Cook sailed past the Noosa area on the Endeavour in May 1770, but transport difficulties meant European settlement of the region did not proceed until 100 years later.

The area was originally home to several Aboriginal groups, including the Undumbi, the Dulingbara, and the Kabi Kabi. Noosa’s European settlement was originally driven by timber logging, and then by a gold rush in nearby Gympie.

In 1871, the Government established a port at Tewantin, and by 1877, there were two hotels and a boarding house in the area.

Accommodation at Noosa has come a long way since then. In the last 50 years – and especially since the upgrading of the Sunshine Coast airport in 1993 to take large jets – Noosa has been transformed from an isolated fishing village to one of Australia’s favourite tourist destinations, but one that still retains a green approach to development.

More than a third of the Noosa district consists of National Parks, Conservation Parks, State Forests, and other generally protected land.

But shops and high-end boutiques abound, along with spas and beauty salons, wellness studios, homewares, and unique gift stores.

And the area is a food lover’s paradise with chic coffee shops, health-food havens, restaurants with the freshest seafood, and breezy bars with river views.    

A little further back from the river, there are organic markets, craft breweries, and distilleries.

The spectacular Noosa River and the area’s beaches and parks provide some of the best picnic spots in Australia.
