We are so fortunate to have everything at our fingertips and the rest can be purchased online with the flick of a mouse as we have high-speed Internet.

The sealed Mulligan Highway connects via Mareeba or Mossman to Cairns International airport.
Nestled on the Great Barrier Reef & Rainforest Coast the Cooktown region is a charming historical region, unspoiled by the urgency of modern life. Its close proximity to nearby reefs, deserted beaches, and river systems make it an ideal fishing destination. While it is best known for its endemic wildlife, culture, history, bird watching, and infamous barramundi stocks the region is an enchanting place to call home.
Real Estate in 2021 is much stronger than we have seen for years. Most investors are buying to live in the region’s unspoiled environment. The region’s growth is unlikely to match the likes of other places or lose its frontier charm in a hurry. In 2020 Cooktown and Cape York were able to shut the door to immediately stop the COVID-19 pandemic from reaching residents and remote communities. This event made Cape York incredibly safe from this health scare. In 2021 Cooktown and the whole of Australia celebrated 251 years since the arrival of Captain Cook. This and other events drew large crowds and the rest of the year saw unprecedented numbers visit the region and record number of property transactions. Into 2022 the region continues to go strongly and with new projects about to commence, we are again looking at a positive future.
