Gladstone's Turtle Island has sold

GLADSTONE'S Turtle Island has finally been sold.

The island was sold, after more than two years on the market, by real estate company Australian Islands.

JUST IN:

>> Turtle Island sold to international buyer and keen fisherman

It was listed for sale at $4m, with the 9.4ha island, a house and approved development application for a resort included.

The selling price and buyer are still unknown for the island 4km northeast off the coast of Gladstone.

In the past the property has tempted celebrities with rumours of the like of 'Kimye' (Kanye West Kim Kardashian) and Clive Palmer who once showed interest.

 

 

In August this year a campaign was launched targeted at Chinese investors to boost interest in the island.

The property was listed as an "exclusive tropical island" buy.

"Island offerings of this calibre with a freehold tenure and ease of access are extremely rare and highly sought after," the adverts read.

In 2013 it was reported the island had been on and off the market since 2009 with two sales falling through.
