For Sale Expression of Interest

Nestled on the banks of the mighty Burnett River, Platypus Park is a country estate spanning 50 acres of carefully curated grounds. The offering is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to experience peace, prosperity, and tranquillity. Perfect for multi-generational families, it provides endless possibilities for adventure and outdoor activities. The estate comprises a grand homestead built in 2018, The Boathouse made of 80% recyclable materials, two self-contained villas, a granny flat, a caretaker's cottage, a 320 sqm barn-style entertaining arena, and open spaces for camp/caravan sites. Whether you want to keep this ultimate lifestyle exclusively or capitalise on its commercial potential, everything is in place to create your best life and realise your vision.

At Platypus Park, living is easy with time as the most luxurious indulgence. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast poolside while savouring mangoes collected fresh from the 400 tree orchards. The daily farm life balances with leisure activities such as kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding through the rainforest creeks and catching the fish of the day. Once back on the shore, fire up the outdoor pizza oven or BBQ, play games with the kids on the football-field-sized lawns, take the ponies through their paces, practice your putting skills on the golf greens or take a cool dip in the freshwater pool. As the sun sets, the true magic begins as you imagine your tomorrow.

Platypus Park celebrates life's simple pleasures and sets the stage for a commercial venture. The infrastructure is in place for a significant destination wedding venue. Sustainability is the mantra, and it is powered by 25kW solar, a six-megalitre water supply, and riparian rights for an unlimited freshwater supply.
