The Retail Shops
The Shops are situated along Charlotte and Walker Streets and let to established long-term tenants comprising Hope Vale Congress, Cooktown Bakery and Cooktown Platinum Realty who also sublet to an accountant and a solicitor.
The Tourist Park is small enough for 2 people to run and the Shops offer an ideal opportunity for a couple looking to own and operate their own business. The peak tourist season is May to October and the quiet wet season from January to March allows for downtime. The Shops’ income complements the Park’s revenue, providing a solid revenue base all year.
Current revenues are around $260,000 – $290,000 (Shop rental $64,000pa; Park revenues $195-225,000pa). Fixed outgoings are around $100,000 as the current owners are self-managing producing net revenues of $160-190,000. Revenue is fully accounted for using MYOB. Revenues are on an upward trajectory with increasing visitor numbers. Investments in additional on-site accommodation would increase revenues further.
