Gaia Nature Reserve
Gaia Nature Refuge is a 508 hectare (1130 acre) property on two titles, located at Mt Byron (Esk Shire), about 1.5 hours drive from Brisbane. Both titles are covenanted, with a one hectare exclusion zone set aside for development. This property encompasses an entire valley, marking the head of Reedy Creek and is surrounded by National Park. It is located at 1966 Mt Byron Road, Mt Byron.
Currently undeveloped, there is a high income earning potential for the property as a wilderness retreat and a multi-faceted ‘for hire’ environmental education resource for environmental organisations and education institutions. The property is ideally suited to the establishment of an exclusive commercial Wilderness Retreat and Environmental Education Centre. The land is particularly suitable for such an enterprise for a number of reasons: it is located only 1.5 hours drive from Brisbane; the mountainous landscape covered by rainforest and eucalypt forests rich in both diversity and numbers of terrestrial and aquatic native plants and animals. It has a perennial stream rising and running through the length of the property fringed by rainforest, and the property is at the end of the road, with no through traffic access.
The land supports a wide variety of significant fauna species including koalas, powerful owls, yellow-bellied gliders and brush-tailed phascogales.
This property has now been sold.
