A “one-of-a-kind” beach property is being offered for the first time in 80 years.
Local, national and international interest is already mounting for 19 Queen of Colonies Parade, which sits on the highest point of Caloundra’s prized Moffat Beach.
The property has been owned by a Brisbane-based family since purchased “for less than 50 pounds” as a vacant block in the 1940s.
Back then, it was serviced by a dirt track worn into the hillside by beachgoers and the only traffic of concern was from kids flying down the hill in billycarts.
The original property is being sold by expressions of interest by Henzells agent Iain Simms.
“This is without a doubt a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Iain said. “It’s a one of a kind.”

Iain said the treasured family holiday home offered a wealth of opportunities for the new owner.
He said they could continue to enjoy it in its classic original form, build their dream home or develop it into luxury apartments.
“Beachfront blue-chip locations like this are extremely rare.”
Named after a ship that foundered off Moffat Head in 1863, Queen of Colonies Parade has since evolved into one of the Sunshine Coast’s premium oceanfront residential precincts.
It offers breathtaking, uninterrupted northerly ocean views that can never be built out, and a vibrant café culture.
Built in the 1950s, the home (pictured above) has been tastefully updated and improved over the course of its life.
Set on a fully useable 506sqm site, it features four bedrooms, two inside bathrooms, an outdoor tropical shower and powder room, fabulous secret garden with extensive entertaining area, plus an open plan ground floor blending living, kitchen and dining spaces with a spectacular view.
“It has been a much-loved weekender and holiday home, filled with wonderful family memories, and now with the owners deciding to move on, it presents an extremely rare chance to buy into this premium location,’’ Iain said.
“Queen of Colonies Parade is regarded as one of the best beachside addresses on the Sunshine Coast, if not, Queensland,” he said.
“Homes hardly ever come on the market, with the last one listed for sale publicly being back in 2014.
“It’s a totally different ball game in 2022. It’s hard to say where the pricing will go as there’s simply nothing else like it available.”
