A REMOTE Far North Queensland vacation vacation spot that has sat vacant for 5 years is about to be the topic of a global advertising push.
Bloomfield Lodge, an up-market property on 2.8ha that’s solely accessible by way of air or boat, is owned by London-based journey entrepreneur Mike Gooley and has been mothballed since closing in 2015.
A spokeswoman for Path-finders, the bespoke journey firm owned by Mr Gooley, mentioned a global agent and advertising plan for the property 160km north of Cairns could be introduced in coming weeks.
The secluded freehold property has its personal non-public headland and pier overlooking Weary Bay and the Coral Sea, and could also be marketed as an unique non-public residence. It’s listed on realestate.com.au on the market for $18m immediately by way of the proprietor.
Bloomfield Lodge ran as a boutique luxurious lodge for 25 years, attracting European and notably German guests. Mr Gooley purchased it in 1990 and spent $15m remodeling it.
In the meantime, work is progressing on the $10m revamp of Silky Oaks Lodge at Mossman, with Port Douglas architect Gary Hunt to design the brand new look luxurious lodge.
It’s scheduled to open in October 2022.
