“Mt Somerset” is the most stunning, private and peaceful property in Far North Queensland on which you can build a unique lifestyle to suit your specific requirements.
Perched high on a mountaintop, nestled on almost 200 acres of natural tropical rainforest, this magnificent one-of-a-kind property has a panorama of stunning uninterrupted views over the Coral Sea, from Rocky Point, past Low Isles to Port Douglas and further down to Double Island and Cairns. To top off the unparalleled coastal scenery, the 180-degree mountain and waterfall views complete the 360-degree panoramas.
Mt Somerset is close to everything, yet completely private and serene. Just minutes from shopping, restaurants, medical and commercial facilities, beaches, golf course, bowls and other sporting and entertainment activities. And right in the middle of the Far North Queensland jewels of the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and the Atherton Tablelands.
