Queensland's Airlie Beach Hotel is on the market for the first time in over 30 years.

The hotel has three major street frontages and is on what is considered to be one of the most strategic land holdings on the Whitsunday coast. 

Wayne Bunz, CBRE Hotels agent said the Airlie Beach Hotel is situated on a significant 8,819sqm waterfront site, in what is arguably the best location in the Airlie Beach CBD, with never to be built out views across to the Whitsunday Island

“It has been well maintained by the family with constant capital expenditure totalling approximately $3.5 million over the past five years,” he said.

"The hotel has multiple diverse income streams including 80 accommodation rooms and conferencing, commercial car park, restaurant, pub, retail liquor, 35 gaming machines and stable retail rental income.

"The retail tenancies have a substantial Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE), with the first lease expiring in 2022.

“Through reconfiguring the existing uses, an operator could also increase passive income by increasing the retail floor plate (STCA), and through additional leasing.”

Christie Leet from PRD Nationwide said the property is one of the most strategic land holdings on the Whitsunday coast.

“A site of this size cannot be replicated on Airlie Beach’s Main Street, where over 60% of properties are already strata titled,” Mr Leet said.

“It is being offered at a time when the region’s tourism sector is the strongest it has ever been, with an additional 110,000 airline seats to Airlie Beach this quarter on the back of being recognised as Australia’s fastest growing regional airport.

"The strength of the market was confirmed by Tourism Whitsundays CEO Craig Turner, who said Airlie Beach is in a strong growth cycle and with the increased flights is placed extremely well for the short to medium term”.
