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.
