48-50 Five Mile Creek Road
Goodbye, big city - hello to North Queensland's country living at its best
Welcome to Hinchinbrook Hideaways, a 68-acre nature lovers' paradise where the established orchards, fresh country air, and sunshine are the star attractions. The land is happily shared with the locals – kangaroos, wallabies, butterflies, and seasonal birdlife. Hinchinbrook Hideaway has many facets to its use: as a family compound with a four-bedroom homestead and three guest houses or to operate as a boutique resort with an established track record and 5-star following.
Bordered by the freshwater Five Mile Creek, there are almost endless possibilities to enjoy from swimming, fishing, hiking, to exploring. The Creek Pavilion, a screened indoor-outdoor ‘family room’, is the location of choice for barbequing the catch of the day or after a swim in the creek.
The homestead is a custom-built family home with open plan living, a gourmet kitchen, generously proportioned rooms, and wide verandas. Its four bedrooms, three with an ensuite, are built over two levels, and there are multiple living areas inside and out.
A second residence is quirky and renovated using repurposed church arches that create a voluminous ceiling and five bedrooms. A cosy three-bedroom bungalow and a one-bedroom cottage round out the accommodations.
The property has a water supply capable of supporting agricultural purposes with a license to pump water from Five Mile Creek, in addition to the three bores. A solar panel system takes advantage of natural energy and significantly reduces commercial electricity consumption.
In the search for greener pastures, access to nature and room to expand, Hinchinbrook Hideaways deserves a look. One call to Lynn Malone or Barbara Wolveridge starts the conversation to make Hinchinbrook Hideaway yours.
