The Cape Gloucester Beach Resort near the Gloucester Passage has been listed for $5.99 million.

It's been listed by four Brisbane friends who pooled their money together to buy the resort as they all share a passion for the water.

There are four shareholders, Arthur Perrins, Michael Hodges, Richard Eaton-Wells and Mark Wilson. The investors bought the island for $2 million in 2012.

Located 45 minutes from Airlie Beach and opposite Shag Island, Gloucester Passage is a popular destination for boaties to anchor in the area.

The property comprises 13 hectares of bush and sand and is lined by several hundred metres of clean sandy beach.

On the premises is a licensed bar, restaurants and self-contained cabins with 45 beds.

The popular resort just hosted the Whitsunday Tourism Awards.

Kim Griffiths at Mackay and Marina Real Estate has the listing.

Griffiths confirmed that no development work has been done. 

“One of the group decided he needed to tidy up his affairs so the rest of the boys just decided they’ll have to sell it,” Griffiths told the Courier Mail.

They’ve used the resort for family holidays over the years but not as much as they’d like to, according to Griffiths.

“The boys haven’t done any development work there,” he said.

“They were going to get a DA pending to do some more beachfront cabins but the boys, they lost their urge to develop.” 

“It’s a profitable business, a successful business as a well-regarded restaurant and weekend venue,” Griffiths said.

“On any Sunday a couple of hundred people will go to Cape Gloucester for lunch.”

The majority of interest so far has been from potential Queensland buyers with a sentimental attachment to the region.

“The boys are going to sell it,” Griffiths said.

“They’re not just putting feelers out there. 

“They want to sell it so they want to be approached.”
