  • Known as Burraga Island, it is located on the Shoalhaven River
  • Currently zoned as RU1 Primary Production, meaning it can be developed into a golf course or other assets
  • A two hour drive from Sydney

A private island on the New South Wales South Coast has come to market.

The 122-hectare Burraga Island, also known as Pig Island, is uniquely positioned on the Shoalhaven River, and offers an unrivalled development opportunity.

The freehold land is primed for multiple uses. The RU1 Primary Production zoning means potential uses include outdoor recreational facilities, an eco-tourism sky-view pod resort, an 18-hole golf course or an inland aqua theme park.

Colliers’ Steam Leung, Joseph Lin, Simon Kersten and Taleah has been tasked with listing the unique asset.

“It is such a rare opportunity to purchase this unique land offering with massive potential for recreational development,” Mr Lin said.

“Owning an island two-hours from Sydney is like a dream come true for many people who wish to be the new King or Queen of the island. The successful landlord, the future ‘Monarch’-to-be can decide to keep the tranquil character of the land or to host tourists after the development.”

The island itself has a single-storey four-bedroom dwelling, a dock and a private barge, which has a loading capacity of 48 tonnes.

There is also an on-site sewer disposal system, power supply and both a telephone landline and ADSL broadband connection. Additionally, there is an on-site caretaker looking after the property.

Located within Nowra, it is near Bomaderry Train Station that connects to Sydney. By car, the CBD is two hours away.

Nowra is also near Jervis Bay, Berry and the Kangaroo Valley, amongst many wineries.

Expressions of interest are now open, with 20 October the closing day.

The sales comes amid listings of a range of quirky properties across Australia, such as an entire former mining town in Victoria.
