Offered for sale for the first time since 1951, this exceptionally private and extraordinary property represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to establish a magnificent residence on an irreplaceable headland site on the coastline north of Cairns.

The view from the north-facing clifftop is, quite simply stunning. The site overlooks the cove of Half Moon Bay beach; and 180-degree view, which can never be built out. Uniquely combines the wide horizon of the Coral Sea with the whole northern coastline stretching from Earl Hill to Palm Cove and Double Island, then beyond to Port Douglas, Daintree World Heritage Rainforest with the Cape Tribulation and (on a clear day) majestic Thornton Peak in the distance.

Just 12* minutes’ drive north of Cairns Airport, Yorkeys Knob is a delightful northern beachside suburb of Cairns which has a patrolled beach, restaurants, a world class marina and an 18-hole golf course.
The property comprises an impressive total area of 11,160m2* (1.16 Ha). The land rises gradually from Buckley Street through dense coastal rainforest to reveal the breaking clifftop ridgeline that spans over 120 metres across the northern beachfront boundary. This ridgeline has been selectively cleared and levelled over the past 70 years to provide over 2000m2* of flat terraced building area facing the amazing view and the cooling sea-breezes in the summer wet season, while the rainforest on the lower slopes has been retained to provide both privacy and protection from the winter south-east trade winds.

Everything about this property adds up to it being the perfect location to build the ultimate tropical lifestyle home.

The existing traditional Queenslander home needs renovation but it could be restored to provide suburb guest accommodation.

Cairns Regional Council has indicated approval for up to 6 dwellings to be sited on the level clifftop area fronting the northern boundary (STCA).

46 – 50 Buckley Street is being publicly offered for sale at a listed price of $2.5M.
