This stunning and spacious Pelorus Island property could be all yours.IF you’ve ever dreamt of escaping to an island, here’s your chance.Pelorus Island’s only residential property is being offered to the market for the first time with the 30-year residential lease covering 4040sq m of prime ocean frontage and exclusive access to one of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park’s most stunning offerings — accessible only via private boat or helicopter.This archipelago is widely acknowledged by the boating community as among the best, and most unpopulated, boating destinations in the world, says listing agent James Pascoe. Pelorus Island island is a fishing and boating dream.The property also comes with a fully equipped workshop, a 4×4 tractor and 6.3m Dale boat, beach trailer and 5hp reduction winch on the island along with a road trailer located at Dungeness near Lucinda. “The lease is 30 years (automatically renewable at 85 per cent of expired term) and still has 29 years to run,” Mr Pascoe said.“It is for residential purposes only but buyers are able to build new additional accommodation but may not operate as a resort.” Could this be North Queensland’s best beachside home?“History is that it was part of the Coral Princess Cruise operation with weekly visits from the boat on its Cairns, Hinchinbrook Channel/ Palm group/Barrier Reef five-day cruise,” he said.“The Coral Princess Cruise business was sold to Singaporean interests who didn’t want the island, as their concentration is now on the Kimberleys, thus the owner now has no use for it and the managers are retiring to Mackay.” More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours agoA spacious island cottage is one of the many extras included in this island property dream.The property comprises a single-level, open-plan cottage and outdoor facilities that take in the best aspects of Pelorus. Fully furnished with unfettered access to all the natural and untouched beauty of the island, this residence has a sprawling veranda at front with sweeping views to the ocean and surrounds just metres from the water.The self-sufficient residence is fully powered by solar with large battery storage systems and dual backup generators on site. Pelorus Island is heaven on earth.Due to its unique positioning, only 17km east of Lucinda, the property has already attracted the interest of numerous buyers, both locally and nationally.“There has been significant local interest from individuals plus syndicates of five or six members looking to use for, say, two months each,” Mr Pascoe said.“Nationally we have had nearly 100 what we regard as reasonably serious inquiries.“We have fielded offers in the $1.2 million to $1.5 million range but we had thought it might be worth circa $2 million.”

But he just couldn’t do it before the biggest game of his coaching career.‘The last time I visited my dad before a game, we lost,’ said Emery, the head coach of Division III Western New England. ‘I couldn’t risk it.’ Emery and the Golden Bears had never earned an NCAA playoff berth. After serving as a part-time head coach, he took over one of the worst teams in Division III football full-time in 2005. WNEU finally had a chance to win the New England Football Conference championship for the first time in school history last Saturday when it took on Framingham State.Coaching without his father in the stands all season was tough for Emery. Donald Emery sat in the bleachers for every game and nearly every practice since his son became WNEU’s first full-time head coach.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSo when the Golden Bears rallied for a miracle 20-13 win over Framingham State in the NEFC championship game last weekend, Emery said his father must have been out on the field with the players he loved to watch.For 56 minutes, Emery said the Golden Bears looked inept. Quarterback Bryce Brown battled strong winds throughout the game and was picked off on two straight fourth-quarter drives. A larger and more physical Framingham State defensive line shut down WNEU’s powerful running game, too, as the Rams built a commanding 13-0 lead.But with 3:47 remaining in the game, the head coach said divine intervention, or something like it, kicked in. Emery called a play that sent four wide receivers straight down the field, and Brown hit junior Brendon Thompson with an arching pass over the middle of the field for a 65-yard touchdown, cutting Framingham State’s lead to six.‘It was something I saw on tape all week,’ Brown said. ‘The strong safety was slow to rotate over to help with coverage, and I put enough air under it. It was a perfect catch.’With the gusting wind at their backs and only one timeout remaining, Emery decided he couldn’t risk giving the ball back to Framingham. He needed get the ball back to Brown and his offense.Freshman kicker Nick Fox-Edele booted a perfectly placed onside kick, junior Phil Tsopanides recovered and the Golden Bears had the ball with a chance to win what looked like a lost game.‘Something was going on down there,’ Western New England Athletic Director Mike Theulen said. ‘To score so fast — and God willing — recover that critical onsides kick. It was miraculous.’After a season of mourning, the Golden Bears rallied for their coach one more time in 2011.The team, Brown said, had become part of the Emery family. Brown, along with fellow team captains J.J. Jachym, Matt Danko and Scott Wojciechowski, made sure their entire team went to Donald’s wake and funeral.When the team faced Norwich (Mass.) University the following Saturday, Emery admitted his game preparation was a little off. And he also wasn’t prepared for Brown’s last pregame tribute: the Golden Bears would wear helmet decals that read ‘DE’ to honor Donald Emery.‘I was speechless,’ Emery said. ‘You can’t ask for better players, and we rallied around that.’The comeback last Saturday against Framingham continued on the team’s 10-play drive after the onside kick.When the Golden Bears faced a fourth-and-nine at the Framingham State 11-yard line, Brown scrambled for 10 yards and a first down. On the next play, and with 26 seconds left in regulation, Brown took a quarterback sneak up to tie the game 13-13 from one yard out. Brown, who was injured during a critical game last season, said that late score was important to him. The quarterback had to watch on the sidelines as the Golden Bears lost a game that could’ve clinched them a spot in the 2010 NEFC championship game.Following Brown’s touchdown, Nick Fox-Edele had to make the point after attempt for the lead.But the kicker who had been spot-on with his onside kick pushed the game-winning PAT wide left, and the game went to overtime.Framingham elected to play defense in the extra period, and in four plays, Brown scored his second touchdown on a run from 12 yards out. This time, Fox-Edele nailed the extra point to put WNEU up seven.‘If it was possible to exhale, we exhaled a little after that,’ Theulen said. ‘Our defense was playing lights out all game.’That lights-out defense, led by defensive tackle Mark Devlin, clamped down the Framingham offense four times on their overtime possession. On fourth down, a pass by Framingham State quarterback Dino Mancinelli hit the turf.And Western New England won its first championship, 20-13.Theulen, who grew close to Donald Emery, said that somewhere he was cheering WNEU’s crazy, NCAA-clinching comeback.‘If you believe in magic and all that, it’s been a storybook year for Western New England,’ Theulen said. ‘I can tell you with all conviction that losing him at the beginning of this season pulled this team together.’For Emery, winning the NEFC this season — his first without his father in the stands — meant a little more. The support he received from his team was overwhelming.‘This university and this team had my back during a rough time,’ Emery said. ‘It’s meant the world to me to coach here, these kids, this team, everything.’[email protected]
