Half of Australia is currently under lockdown. This “glamping tent” located on an island beach provides the perfect escape from the pandemic as well as the seemingly endless, kick-in-the-guts media conferences.
Lot 54 is located on Prince of Wales Island, Torres Strait. It covers 8002 sq m and has been described by many as a rustic-style retreat.
Stacey Quaid, Colliers Cairns agent, stated that the property is located on Prince of Wales Island in Torres Strait. It can be found along the white sandy beaches of Prince of Wales Island.
It is remote, and there are no electricity, water, or waste treatment facilities on Mural, also known as Mural.
It lies about 16km north of Cape York’s tip. Residents there depend on generators and water tanks. Daily waste collection is also provided by the Torres Shire Council.
The property includes a safari-style, canvas-style glamping tent, toilet amenities, and a carport with the kitchen/barbecue area.
According to Stacey Quaid, the property was fully furnished for both short- and long-term stays. It also has operational solar power panels and battery storage.
The island is used primarily by locals to enjoy fishing, solitude camping spots, and hiking trails with breathtaking views, as well as exploring the idyllic beaches.
He listed the property a week ago and said that he had received lots of interest from buyers, including those stuck in Sydney or Brisbane lockdowns.
He said that the Sydney buyers were looking for a vacation destination and a place to escape.
“But the majority of interest has come from corporate types at Thursday Island.”
According to Mr. Quaid, the island is a popular destination for weekend fishing, hiking, and hunting.
He stated that the current owners worked on Thursday Island, but are now moving on.
Mr. Quaid stated that they were really looking for a place to go “glamping”. They put in an outdoor toilet, and it was intentional because they wanted it to look like an outdoor dunny.
“There is also an outdoor shower.”
According to Mr. Quaid, the only way to reach the island was by taking a dinghy, dropping anchor, and then wading through warm water.
He said, “And beyond row coconut trees is this little escape, and it truly is idyllic.”
According to Mr. Quaid, the property will be sold because it is difficult to price a Torres Strait property.
