If you’ve ever thought of owning your own island but thought it was just a pipe dream – think again!
Wade Island, a private 91-hectare island in Wee Jasper, went on the market in March.
Despite attracting a lot of interest, it failed to sell at auction last week.
“We thought we’re going to get a better result if we invite a wider range of people into this so we thought we’d advertise a price range,” Nic Salter-Harding from LJ Hooker in Dickson said.
“What we’ve got is a range of $600,000 to $650,000. If you’re somewhere in that range you can own this place!”
Yes – you read that right. That’s less than the average Canberra home!
“The zoning for it allows for a range of uses which is quite exciting and we’ve had a lot of really varied and interesting inquiries as far as what people want to do with it,” Mr Salter-Harding said.
“It’s not often you get something along these lines, to my knowledge, this is pretty much it if you want something like this in the region.”
Ned & Josh spoke about Wade Island on the HIT104.7 Breakfast Show this morning – and Josh came up with a wacky idea on what he’d do with it!
