Founded in 2011, The Australian Platypus Park business is offered to the market for the first time, in conjunction with 40* acres (16.63Ha*) of rolling pastoral land. The Australian Platypus Park presents further development opportunities for this established eco-tourism and aquaculture business and is well positioned to cash in on the projected 170%* increase in Chinese tourism in the Cairns Region over the next ten years.
The business falls into the highly sought after category of an eco-tourism destination business and offers multiple income streams including tours, food and beverage, alcohol sales, which includes their own beer, smoked meats from the commercial kitchen and smokehouse, souvenirs and gifts. This unique business is the only location on the Atherton Tablelands to reliably see platypus in the wild everyday.
Its idyllic location on the Atherton Tablelands makes it a prime destination for lunchtime trade for self-drive and tour operators, with its central position being a halfway point for typical Tableland tours. The business was established as an aquaculture and eco-tourism destination but has evolved away from aquaculture to focus purely on its eco-tourism operations.
