The town is on the Gulf Development Highway west of the Atherton Tablelands, located 285KM west of the regional centre of Cairns and is on the main highway between the Gulf and the Pacific attracting local as well as large number of tourist passing through or staying to Fossick for Gems and Rare Metals.
The post office is part of a thriving business, The Gem Den, which has been lovingly developed over the past 15 years by the current owners and offering the opportunity to be the heart of an outback community. The owners are the licensees for the Mount Surprise Post Office which has a healthy guaranteed annual income, plus commissions for services and products sold. All residence collect their own mail which ensures you are the centre of the community. Australia Post arranges all Training needed to run this services. In terms of an investment the returns are extremely good.
The property also has a 1 bedroom residential owner's accommodation attached to the business, providing a living room, bathroom and bedroom which would make this property idea as a couple run business. There are bores servicing the individual blocks which are both located with main road frontage and drive access off the Gulf Development Highway. The current business and structures have been established on one lot which gives the owners the ability to develop the business further into tourist accommodation or expand on the current service of The Gem Den or to build your new residential home separate from the business. Both blocks have been zoned Residential / Commercial/ Industrial which opens up numerous avenues to develop the business further. If the block was no longer needed and as the block is on a separate title, it could be sold off separately.
Alongside this you have the opportunity to continue the current business on the property which has become a cornerstone of the Town. The business has been developed around the owners love of minerals and Gem stones with the business making an income from appraising, and designing gem-stone jewellery. The current owners are willing to train the purchaser and supply cut gems, so no experience is needed. However you could decide to move away from the gem business and diversify into other aspects within the business. The opportunities are endless. The Gem Den owners currently sell and hire out fossicking gear and mining tools, issue fossicking licenses along with lots of information, maps etc. to access any of the 6 designated fossicking areas in the region and are one of the largest issuers of licenses in QLD. They also impart information for gold detecting. All of which is easily learned as current owners are eager to share information to make running this business easy.
There is also Caf which is on a large veranda, with large well equipped kitchen and cold-room, & is open during the tourist season serving meals and snacks along with the best coffee in the Gulf. This is a great draw-card for locals, tourists and general travelers alike.
The Postal Business is being sold for $60,000 and the remaining residence and both blocks are being sold for $200,000 which opens up financing options in terms of reducing the commercial loan and possibly enabling a residential loan for the remaining property.
