This is a unique opportunity to purchase a fully approved Integrated Marina Complex in the World Heritage Listed location of Fraser Island and is being sold as a going concern with a Licensed restaurant and bar, kiosk, charter office, and 8-berth marina. This is currently the only Marina development that has been rezoned and approved for Licensed premises in the area.
The marina complex currently returns 5% plus net on the sale price and would make an ideal investment decision for a Superfund.

Known on many marine charts as Sunset Harbour due to the fact it is one of the few marinas on the East Coast of Australia where the sun sets across the water.

The original concept of the Sunset Harbour Marina at Carlo Point was as a yacht charter base and operated as such for many years, and also for a time used for houseboat hire. Today it operates as a base for deep-sea fishing charters and the Dolphin Ferry Cruise boat, plus as a marina for private pleasure boats.
The opportunity also exists for the establishment of a new yacht, cruiser, or houseboat hire business, the necessary infrastructure is complete with all statutory requirements. This is the perfect opportunity to start your own charter boat business, or even for starting a fishing boat and canoe hire business. A charter office on the second level gives an excellent vision of the Carlo Point waterway and is the perfect place to operate any marine-based business.
The marina has water and power to each berth as well as a sewerage pump-out facility. Toilets and showers are available for the restaurant and marina customers. Rubbish collection and gas bottle refilling are on site.
Skippered charters for overseas backpackers and the concept of sailing and 4WD tours could be easily operated from this location.
The concept of arranging bus tours of groups that incorporate meals at the restaurant and a Fraser Island cruise are all possibilities for the entrepreneur. The idea works well for Xmas parties and over 60 clubs. The possibilities are endless.

The restaurant at Sunset Harbour Marina is currently operated as Quay Carlo restaurant you'll find some good photos on their Facebook page.
The restaurant Quay Carlo Rainbow Beach has a 3-year lease.

In the past has operated as a bar/ bistro, Thai restaurant, and a-la-carte restaurant serving fresh local seafood.
The premises hold a current QLD on-premises Liquor License. The establishment consists of the Skipper’s Bar and an eat-in restaurant seating 50 persons inside and 30 persons outside on the deck under the sails. A separate kiosk is on-site for serving takeaways ice creams and drinks.
The kitchen is fully equipped including a built-in fridge and freezer, dishwasher, 2 x deep fryer, stove with a BBQ plate, oven, microwave, and food prep trays, and all items to operate the restaurant. The kiosk is equipped with a refrigerated fish/ seafood display, a hot food display, and a cappuccino machine.
All equipment is owned by the complex and is included in the restaurant lease fee.
