The Dutch real estate investor Universal Partners is selling off its rural holding on Queensland's Curtis Island with likely buyers tipped to be tourism operators.

The 2680 hectare holding was once owned by cattle baron Sir Graham McCamley who sold in  2003.

The land with rugged coastline, white sand beaches and fresh water lagoons was purchased by the Rotterdam-based investment group for more than $10 million over a decade ago.

It sits 55 kilometres east of Rockhampton, within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The North Hollywood-based Australian Resort Enterprises has a major parcel of land at the southern end of the island. 

The Australian Financial Review noted the neighbouring Monte Christo cattle station came to an end in 2014 when three gas companies, Santos GLNG, Australia Pacific LNG and Queensland Curtis LNG, jointly purchased the 22,000 hectares for environmental offsets. 

CBRE have been appointed to sell Universal Partners holding which includes 25 freehold titles and two air strips.

"Opportunities abound to create a private retreat, boutique eco resort or commercial hub capitalising on North Curtis Island's outstanding location," Chris Holgar said.
