Pristine Tasmanian waterside property extensive accommodation options with a successful business in place
Here's a unique opportunity to secure 15.4 hectares (38 acres) of superlative coastal woodland and native forest that is currently the location of a well-established, on-site accommodation business.
The Far South Wilderness Camp is beautifully positioned on the Shoreline Reserve that borders the Esperance River, which opens out into a picturesque inlet of the lower D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
The forest reserve on the property provides natural habitat for protected species including swift parrots and wedge-tailed eagles. The forest slopes up towards the boundary of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Key visitor attractions nearby include Hastings Caves, Ida Bay Railway, and Tahune Adventures, site of the famous AirWalk. It's a short drive to Recherche Bay and Cockle Creek, starting point of the renowned South Coast Track, one of the world's finest multi-day wilderness walks.
The property, which is only 80 kilometres south of Hobart, can comfortably host up to 66 guests in a variety of accommodation choices, including:
• Two five-room, six-bunk cabins
• Two double motel-style cabins
• Separate lodge sleeping up to 10
• Sheltered camping areas
This flexibility means that Far South can cater for any-sized groups ranging from school camps, work or club groups, conferences, functions and weddings to short-stay accommodation for couples or families.
Other facilities include:
• Private residence for onsite manager or owner
• Recreation/dining hall with fully-equipped commercial kitchen
• Amenities block
• BBQ shelter
• Storage sheds
• Private jetty and pontoon
The owners of Far South have recently commissioned an independent estimate of the replacement costs of the buildings on the property. The assessment, which is dated October 2018, estimates the replacement costs at $4.1 million. A copy of the report can be provided to potential buyers with a serious interest in the property.
Far South is very popular as a location for schools, clubs and organisations to hold gatherings in a remote and beautiful part of Tasmania, with a wide range of team-building activities available to guests - kayaking, bushwalking, river rafting, mountain biking and orienteering are all readily available close at hand.
The property is offered for sale as a going concern in a freehold purchase of the land, buildings and business. Far South has established a strong reputation among past guests and a number of forward bookings are in place.
We can provide detailed floor plans, recent profit & loss statements and a full list of non-fixed plant and equipment (this is not included in the purchase price but can be negotiated separately.)
The combination of an operating business with outstanding infrastructure in a uniquely beautiful Tasmanian wilderness setting is very rare and special. Far South deserves your inspection.
Owner is keen to Sell.
