A Slice of Hollywood in the Hills
June 3 2022
The desire to spend more time outside in nature has never been a stronger driver for Australian property buyers than in the past two years.
The lust for a clean, green lifestyle has seen many buyers head for the hills on the Gold Coast and in Northern New South Wales where demand has soared for acreage and hinterland holdings.
Gold Coast Hinterland buyers could be seeing stars with a slice of Hollywood in the hills launched by this week by Kollosche.
A unique 103 acre estate – one of the largest land parcels on the open market in Tamborine Mountain – comes with impressive celebrity credentials.
The popular film shoot location at 43 Justin Avenue has hosted a slew of big name blockbusters including Kokoda, King Kong and Dora The Explorer.
Made up of 24 acres of grazing land and 79 acres of pristine rainforest, lush valleys conceal a stunning landscape of cascading waterfalls and dramatic rocky escarpments.
Kollosche’s Kara Christensen is calling for expressions of interest on the Tamborine Mountain treasure that presents a range of lucrative income-producing possibilities.
“This property is a very unique offering,” says Kara.
“The Gold Coast has emerged as a preferred destination for filmmakers since Covid.
“Filmmakers love the location because it’s accessible, extremely private and the scenery is beyond spectacular.”
The Shelf Road is among the mountain’s most sought-after streets owing to the elevation which affords spectacular views stretching as far as South Stradbroke Island.
This lush rainforest parcel offers 15 flat acres with two building envelopes on which to construct an extremely private estate surrounded by nature.
“Buyers have the option to consider one or both parcels for a combined total of 123 acres on which to build, hold or improve,” says Kara.
“The possibilities for both lots are varied and exciting.”
Earlier this year, Hollywood stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts were spotted on Mount Tamborine filming romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise. But it’s not just filmmakers chasing a piece of this green paradise.
Tamborine Mountain has long been a firm favourite of locals and tourists alike, with visitors converging on the famed Gallery Walk to sample handmade and homegrown goods including wine, cheese, chocolate, clothing, antiques, art and crafts.
The area is also a gateway to popular rainforest hiking trails, with high demand for accommodation, private retreats and nature-based experiences.
