Tucked away in its own secret valley, this 10+ acre (4.07 hectares) paradise is your chance to escape from the crowds, yet be around 10 minutes drive from Noosa (Tewantin and Cooroy).
Featuring a huge 20m by 14m shed with a roomy, liveable 2 bedroom annex with excellent rural views. The shed will easily house 20 cars and has a very high clearance for heavy vehicles. A 30 kW solar system graces the rooftop. Live in the annex to the shed while you build your dream home! The annex has a self contained area consisting of lounge, kitchen, bedroom, storage room or 2nd bedroom, bathroom, plus verandah at rear with views overlooking property.
A huge spring fed dam is reticulated to the vegetable garden and chicken coop.
Live in your own private nature reserve with numerous kangaroos and koalas, as well as teeming with bird life.
The best homesite is on an idyllic, secluded elevated level area at a high point on the block which features a glorious vista down the valley, which would have “second floor” views of the twinkling lights in Noosa Heads. The rest of the block features extensive selectively cleared lush pasture and stands of majestic bloodwood, ironbark and Gympie messmate trees. A lovely secluded sanctuary is under development with palms and rare clumping bamboos that would suit a private wedding or similar functions.
Noosa Shire schools, shopping centres, parks and waterways, marinas, golf courses, galleries, boutiques and entertainments are just minutes away by car.
The property is less than 1 km to Ringtail Forest with 25,000 acres of biking, walking trails and recreation opportunities. Nearby Boreen Point township on Lake Cootharaba features sailing and boating and the iconic Appollonian Hotel, and access the stunning Noosa Everglades, Noosa River and Great Sandy National Park.
349 Ringtail Creek Road is larger than 4 hectares which opens some additional development possibilities on Rural zoned properties subject to Noosa Council consent. If interested, please read the following notes:

POTENTIAL ACCOMMODATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR “NATURE BASED TOURISM”.
Subject to Council Consent there are substantial opportunities for small scale accommodation developments but note there are NO approvals in place currently. Council Fact Sheet says:
“Nature-based tourism includes sustainable activities or experiences that relate to the natural environment. Such experiences may be associated with the high scenic amenity of rural landscapes, natural beauty of the mountain ranges, sub-tropical bushland or waterways. Nature-based tourism has potential to provide diverse, high quality tourist experiences and local economic development opportunities provided they are carefully located and designed to minimise impacts on the natural environment, scenic landscape, local character and amenity. Nature-based tourism easily accessible to the trail network is particularly encouraged.”
“Subject to code assessment, a Rural zoned property of 4ha or more could have up to 4 free standing cottages, cabins or permanent tents, accommodating up to 8 guests. If development meets all the criteria for nature based tourism up to 12 guests could be accommodated in buildings or up to 24 guests in permanent tents. Impact assessment is required for larger proposals.”
OTHER BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN THE RURAL ZONING
A variety of business opportunities are recognised by Noosa Council for rural zoned properties. The Council’s Fact Sheet says: “Other business opportunities in the Hinterland include, for example plantation timbers, wholesale nurseries, intensive horticulture, equine enterprises, outdoor education or environment facility, solar farm, home-based classes, studio, or personal or professional services.”
WIDER CONNECTION TO THE NOOSA TRAIL NETWORK
Noosa Council has recently released the Noosa Trail Masterplan see http://noosabiosphere.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Noosa-Trail-Masterplan-April-2020-(compressed).pdf The Masterplan envisages a new Preferred Link Corridor linking the Ringtail Forest hub (and Boreen Point) with connections to the Tewantin National Park, Yurol State Forest and Lake Macdonald. 349 Ringtail Creek Road is one of the few freehold properties right at the centre of this linkage, being around 1 km from the Ringtail Forest. Given that the Nature Based Tourism criteria explicitly references access to the Trail Network there are substantial opportunities to explore!
“The handover of Ringtail State Forest to transition to National Park status creates an ideal opportunity to develop a trail plan that incorporates realigning existing trails (for better experience and linkages) and the creation of new trails based on maximising the landscapes and elevation on offer for high quality mountain biking and on-foot (walk/ run) trails. Ringtail’s proximity to Boreen Point in the north also makes it a primary focus for education group use, with Boreen Point and Elanda Point major hubs for school groups, and major users of trails in the region. From safety and experience perspectives there is requirement for a transit linking trail from Boreen Point to the northern Ringtail State Forest entrance trailhead. Connecting trails are required to the south-east into Tewantin NP and to the south-west into Yurol State Forest, as well as into Lake Macdonald (potential major trailhead).”
