Island listed for sale, better bring your own beach

PERHAPS you're a famous face, looking to create your own secluded getaway or a cashed up socialite hoping to own a slice of paradise?

If so, the Fraser Coast's Kangaroo Island might be just what you're looking for - and you don't even need to be a millionaire.

It's only 10 minutes by boat from River Heads or by helicopter from the Hervey Bay airport and is for sale.

Agent Richard Vanhoff said he expects the 166 hectare property to sell for less than $1 million in the next few weeks.

"It has all the hallmarks of a beautiful island that can be properly developed," he said.

Mr Vanhoff said the island could be turned into anything from a fishing retreat for good friends to a rural residence.

"It's a beautiful flat island, raised in some areas," he said.

Mr Vanhoff said there would be nothing stopping a new owner bringing sand in and developing their own beach.

"Most of the fishermen know it, there's plenty of crabs around the edge and plenty of fishing," he said.

Mr Vanhoff said it was possible for water and electricity to be connected on the island.

"It's purely and simply an island ready for an owner," he said.

"It will sell for less than a million."

Kangaroo Island is a freehold island, opposite Fraser Island and was last used as a farm.
