For Sale Expressions of Interest, Contact Agent

Utingu is considered the most important freehold landholding in the upper region of Cape York and is unencumbered by native title. It is an 88-hectare oceanfront property located at the northernmost point of the Australian mainland between the 10th and 11th parallel and in proximity to land, sea, and air logistical hubs. Given its significant footprint and equatorial location, there are opportunities for a diversity of capabilities and tenancies in the space, defence, and surveillance sectors.

The 440 sqm Utingu Lodge has four guest suites along with a commercial kitchen, banquet dining, laundry and storage facilities. An adjacent 420 sqm maintenance hangar stores heavy equipment, a workshop, and staff quarters. DA approvals are in place to construct additional buildings, structures, and facilities.

For over 20 years, the Utingu vendors have enjoyed the property as a private retreat. The time has come to pass Utingu to the next generation of adventurers, explorers, and pioneers. For more information, please call Lynn Malone at +61 408 772 880.
