tered for the auction earlier this week. “It’s a showpiece,’’ he said. “The screen is 11m high, so when you are projecting someone’s house, it’s an amazing thing.”
The auction will kick off at 9am this morning and Mr Williamson hopes the 300-seat cinema will be filled with both potential buyers and possible future sellers.
“We have a wide variety of properties, from the Chillagoe Post Office Hotel through to units, land, houses ...”
“The Chillagoe Post Office Hotel – that ’s an iconic Far North Queensland property.
“We ’ v e g o t 7 H a l l S t a t Edge Hill – that’s a blue chip address.
“It ’s a Queenslander in a highly sought-after address.
“And 23 Walnut St at Hollo- ways Beach backs onto a barramundi-filled lake.
“Holloways Beach is going well, it’s so close to town and so accessible to the airport and everywhere.
“There is such a diverse mix of properties (going to auction).”
Mr Williamson said there was also a Trinity Park canalfront home where you could “take your own boat to work”.
Agent Margrit Allen listed Chillagoe’s beloved Post Office Hotel earlier this month when owners Donna and John Burton decided to put it on the market after 17 years.
“The Post Office Hotel has a steady income stream with massive room for expansion,’’ Ms Allen said.
“Located about three hours west from Cairns along the Wheelbarrow Way, the town offers good old-fashioned country hospitality and attractions such as the limestone caves, smelters, an observatory, and is also renowned for its past mining history.”
The freehold Queenslander was built in 1923, has eight guest rooms, a TV room, manager’s quarters and a beer garden.
The iconic pub is known for its rustic public bar, hotel meals and homemade muffins sold at morning tea.
