Have you ever dreamed giving back to nature by retiring to your rainforest estate or enjoying your weekender tucked away in the unique Great Barrier Reef & Rainforest coast?

Lot 6 Bloodwood Road Bloomfield, Qld 4895 (Butterfly Block)

The owners of this estate are reluctant sellers but are placing the property on the market due to previously unforeseen circumstances.

Driving off the Mulligan Highway south of Black mountain towards Rossville & Bloomfield, there is a very pleasant drive on sealed roads descending down through some magnificent ancient rainforest all the way to the coast. Weary Bay was named by Cook and is an open 9km long bay, at the mouth of the Bloomfield River where you’ll often find the locals wetting a line. The beautiful Weary Bay Beach is an ideal spot for a blissful stroll along the loamy sand beach or even a picnic. Access is via Weary Bay Road.

The region surrounding this lush property was once bursting with activity in timber, tobacco, and the sugar mill days. The Great Barrier Reef and Rainforest coast of Bloomfield as it is known, is an area where ancient rainforest-clad mountains frame the low coastal plain. At Rossville / Helenvale north of Ayton you will find the infamous Lion’s Den Hotel. Cold beers and tall yarns are in order as this is one of Queensland’s oldest pubs that first opened in 1875.

Bloodwood road travels west off Bloomfield road heading towards the rainforest-clad mountains. At the foot of these mountains, nicely tucked away in this secluded enclave are some of the nicest estates and rainforest lifestyle getaways making this such a welcoming community. At Ayton there is the Bloomfield library opposite the IGA Express general store and takeaway, the Bloomfield Hall for community events, Black Cockatoo Gallery, Bloomfield Beach Camp, Bloomfield Escape cabins, and Mt Lewis Homestead farm stay. Closer to the Bloomfield river there are also the Bloomfield State school, a wharf, and a boat ramp each set on the banks of the mighty Bloomfield River towards the riverside community of Wujal Wujal.

Lot 6 the “butterfly block” is covered in a Remanent rainforest with two entry points to the block. One is an old track in from Bloodwood road. This begins on the flat and travels to the southern end of the block. Along the eastern boundary, the track has been recently cleared. The vendors upon purchasing this block opened a house pad on the southern end of the block with a 20 metre wide access drive from the start of Lot 7. This gazetted access leads to an elevated house pad which has potential views out across Weary Bay onto the Coral Sea. Build an off-grid eco pole home there with bedrooms reaching out to the rising morning sun.
