Heron Island for sale: your stories, photos
GLADSTONE's treasure off the coast, Heron Island, is for sale.
The 10ha block sold "for a steal" in 2009, according to the manager at the time, but it was part of an $85million asset sale from real estate investment group GPT group.
You'd want healthy pockets for any likely deal here; because it fetched $42million in 2004.
The Observer's social networkers were excited at the news, some toying with the idea of what could be, if only they were millionaires.

Fish Fischer: Hopefully the new owners sink some money in to it.
Carla Howell: My husbsnd & I went there for my 30th birthday a few years ago. We loved it!
Radar Wall: It's a fantastic island I worked there 25 years ago
