A Singaporean tourism developer has snapped up a vacant site in Albany as Lots 1&2 Frenchman Bay Road sold for $1,050,000 following a successful campaign.

The two combined lots were zoned for tourism use and offered a total 3.2594 ha site area, with Lot 1 occupying 1.8987 ha, and Lot 2 occupying 1.3607 ha.

The property was marketed and sold by Ray White Commercial (WA) Senior Property Advisor Brett Wilkins and Hotels, Tourism and Leisure Advisor Phil Zoiti.

“The land is unique in relation to its location and views and is close to a number of attractions including Whale World, the Salmon Holes, and the Torndirrup National Park. The site is currently vacant and has planning approval in place for development of 24 accommodation units - together with a caretaker’s residence and café,” Mr Wilkins said.

Mr Zoiti said, “Investment sentiment is positive for regional tourism assets - whether it be bricks and mortar or development sites - which is indicative of the market in 2019 and before the COVID-19 pandemic."

“Whilst there was a temporary setback with COVID-19 back in March 2020, we have seen a strengthening of the sector - especially in the accommodation and caravan park markets - in both visitor nights and spend. "

“Overall, enquiry levels for regional hotel and tourism assets has increased tenfold in the past six months with investors looking to buy in key tourism areas such as Kununurra, Broome, Carnarvon, Shark Bay/Denham, Kalbarri, Dongara, Bunbury, Margaret River/Busselton, Albany and Esperance,” he concluded.
