Qld Government can't sell multi-million dollar estate

THE Queensland Government will not sell a multimillion-dollar state-owned manor on 10 hectares bordering Springbrook National Park, because the sale would be viewed as an asset sale.

Springbrook Mountain Manor, built privately as a reception centre in the 1980s, was bought by the Queensland Labor government in 2007 when it expanded Springbrook National Park.

The 10-hectare property includes accommodation for 38 guests, a commercial kitchen, function hall, games room, staff quarters, a four-bedroom residence, nine-hole golf course, walking trails, tennis court, hedge maze, boardwalk and rotunda overlooking a small lake.

In 2007 the Bligh government paid $2.7 million for the reception centre and the surrounding property, with real estate experts suggesting it could be worth up to $4 million.

The property had been run as a wedding and reception centre since the 1980s until it ran into difficulties in the early 2000s.
