Waterview Estate, the 1913 Bundaberg homestead set on 4.7 hectares has been listed for July 31 Ray White Rural auction.

It is currently a family home, but was previously a bed & breakfast and wedding venue.

Peter Douglas at Ray White Rural has the auction offering, marketing it as a "timeless piece of Queensland history."

The 2 Gavin Street, Bundaberg North waterfront property offered solitude in the middle of town, he said.

"With business interests the family have moved and offer this small piece of Queensland history for immediate possession," he said.

It last sold in 2012 at $1.15 million, with significant maintenace and improvements undertaken since on its Burnett River frontage.

Bundaberg was established in the late 1860s.

Timber was the industry that acted as a catalyst for the creation of a European settlement, lead by the sawmiller Samuel Johnston, who is credited as building the residence, albeit now relocated and with substantial modifications.
