Daintree | 129 Rykers Road, Cape Tribulation


This is an rare opportunity to acquire 24 hectares of land with residential development potential. The unique location with its magnificent views overlooking Cape Tribulation & the Coral Sea – and with plans in place – is a great combination to complete a very attractive holiday letting property. The appeal to up-market visitors/tourists seeking to “get away from it all” for a week or a month or so would be very strong. The project initially commenced for building a pavilion style residence. Some of the required infrastructure is in place including foundations with wiring & water access, septic system, and two 22,000 litre water tanks. There’s a pump shed with a diesel powered pump which draws from the creek providing a year round pristine water source.

With consideration towards interested parties wishing to continue the works that have been started, a structural engineer was appointed to survey the foundations. His report is that they are sound and can be built on with minor remedial work. Investigations with the Douglas Shire Council have confirmed that the lapsed planning permission can be reinstated (STCA). Building plans and Reports on the above matters are available to interesting parties.

The property has a picturesque freshwater creek flowing year round, and fruit orchards including Mangosteen, Durian, Soursop, Coconuts and Rambutan, serviced by a large three-bay shed. The task of constructing a sealed driveway through the thick foliage of the rainforest and up the range to the clearing at the top of the plot has already been done for you; this links the orchard and service shed towards the bottom, to the construction site on a crest of the range, 200m higher up.

The adjacent property, known as ‘Cape Tribulation Sanctuary’ 163 Rykers Road; is a 2.1 hectares lot featuring a magnificent home and views. This is also for sale by the same owner.
