Rural lifestyle haven near Cooktown

2354 Mulligan Highway, Rossville

4 bed  |  2 bath

Whether you’re looking for a bushland hideaway, an agriculture business or tourism opportunity, this huge 1,120 acre (453 ha) block is a must-see.

The land has been divided into five titles with five approved house sites. You could choose to develop the sites, building eco-friendly cottages that can then be sold off or make the most of the exceptional location and natural beauty by creating a tourist destination where visitors can indulge in the peace and privacy of this unique location.

Currently, the property offers a four bedroom, two bathroom home with an expansive timber deck that takes in breathtaking panoramic views of the The Little Annan River Gorge and the Kings Plains/Alkoomie Nature Reserve. There’s a basic kitchen and living spaces all crafted from shipping containers and timbers milled on the property.

Cooktown acreage home

The home is powered by solar panels and is serviced by the property’s 130,000l water tank so you can live off-the-grid without creating an environmental footprint and without the high costs of water and electricity. There’s power at the gate, while a carport, a garage and open car spaces, offers ample parking and storage.

The land is lightly timbered and currently runs 30 cattle (max up to about 350 head) with a cattle yard and crush, plus 10km of fencing and laneways; perfect for those seeking a rural lifestyle complete with livestock and ready-made infrastructure.

But, with approx 4km of river frontage, 453 ha (1,122 acres) of land, natural springs, thundering waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife, this home’s true value lies in its potential.


Guests can wander through the beautiful bushlands and along the 1km of rainforest creek, relaxing into a true rural lifestyle experience. There’s over 30km of roads and tracks to wander along and the block sits next to the Black Mountain National Park so guests can expand their wanderings into the park.

This exciting property is conveniently located at the junction of the Daintree Forest coastal road and Inland route to Cairns, just 20-minutes from Cooktown and 5kms from historic Lion’s Den Hotel so you and guests can enjoy quick access to everything you could need.
