Opportunity to build on Cairns’ booming residential market

A rare chance to snap up two residential development sites has arisen in Cairns.

Lot 2 and Lot 4, Mount Peter Road, Mount Peter have development potential for more than 500 lots.

Lot 2 comprises 38.58ha with a draft development scheme for 440 lots. Lot 4 comprises 5.9ha with development approval for 79 lots.

Brought to market by Ray White Special Projects agents Andrew Burke and Matthew Fritzsche, and Property Shop agent Ben Johnston who said the property would suit residential land developers and land bankers.

Mr Burke said there were limited opportunities to purchase in Cairns’ only residential growth


“There is actually not a lot of residential land supply in Cairns, restricted by lack of designated zoning, services  and physical topography of Cairns- mountains in the west and water in the east,” he said.

“This is quite literally one of few chunks of land for sale in the market, with lots in new housing estates selling at very fast rates in recent times.”

Mr Burke said the lots were surrounded by successful residential estates including Mount Peter Estate and Rocky Creek Estate.

The lots are also close to an existing and planned school.

Mr Johnston said there has never been a better time to invest in the Cairns region.

“It’s a red hot housing market which still has legs as the economy is now re-emerging from quiet times during Covid,” he said.

“Tourists are now back in Cairns  to drive the economy further.”

The property is being sold via expressions of interest closing May 31 at 4pm.
