Our Story

….so far

At Real Estate Downunder we are a small start up businesses with loads of energy, focus and commitment to both buyers and sellers. As owner operators we specialise in tourism transactions in the $1 Million plus price range. We are owned by Australian Pacific lodges Est 2001.

Since 1985 our principle has been actively involved in resort developments and hotel management on the Great Barrier Reef & Rainforest Coast; Palm Cove and Cairns. In 1996 we founded marketing company Pacific Downunder in Switzerland which successfully operates today in Australia. In 2001 Australian Pacific Lodges acquired and operates Mungumby Lodge in the northern jungle on the Great Barrier Reef & Rainforest Coast in Tropical Far North Queensland. Living rural on the land with family on Cape York we know what its like to try and position your business or asset on the market for sale. There are lots of good agents out there, but few specislise in rural boutique tourism sales and acquisitions, let alone anything about operating this type of business in order for buyers to understand what they are buying or getting into. More than thirty years of tourism experience owning and managing hotels, resorts, restaurants, cafe’s, transport operator or working with dive expedition and larger scale passenger ships, we understand great deal about tourism. With a Dip Hort and horticultural apprentice behind us, we have been involved in developing and operating orchards, packing sheds and working on high production plantations in large scale.

For over twenty four years, we have been marketing tourism clients to tour operators globally. Integrity as always been a fundamental component of our on-going success along with being trust worthy.
