Recreational boating and fishing have traditionally been one of the absolute indulgences of locals and visitors alike throughout Far North Queensland. The temptation of wetting a line for the keen angler or novice fisherman has only been enhanced since COVID 19, with enthusiasts foregoing overseas travel to enjoy the natural beauty of our idyllic northern coastline.
For those entrepreneurs wishing to reap the benefits of such booming leisure activities, this long-established business with an enviable reputation has been offered to the market for the first time in 22 years. Boasting multiple Motor, Boat and Trailer Dealerships and a fully equipped Marine Workshop, the Tinnie Shack at pristine Mission Beach has proven to be the market leader on the Cassowary Coast and surrounds. The re-opening of the now upgraded Clump Point boat ramp, breakwater, car park and amenities block is a shot in the arm for the district and provides unprecedented growth potential to The Tinnie Shack’s operations.
Rarely do such diverse, niche market business opportunities in such a sought after location arise. Strategically located between the major coastal cities of Cairns and Townsville, Mission Beach is a well-established community with strong residential growth, recent public infrastructure development including waterpark and a genuine tourism hotspot. Renowned as the gateway to the famous Dunk and Bedarra Islands, Mission Beach hosts many signature restaurants, resorts, caravan parks, a major shopping centre, medical centre, primary school and day care facilities.
