    Seems all is not lost for at least one Gladstone-investor.. but only if you happen to own one of 9 freehold islands in QLD.

    Turtle Island for sale: Celebrity lifestyle beckons in Queensland

    Bob Bentley bought it back in 94 for about $300k (undeveloped) on the market for a few $Million now. I still have to laugh at the marketing, being so close to the GBR and all... :)

    Is this the same one that kim kardashian was rumoured to buy a few years ago?
    All a play to get media attention.

    Still doom and gloom for Gladstone. (There's a couple of other Gladstone threads going btw)

    Yeah, Julia Roberts looked at it first then Kardashian clan was rumored to be interested. I think they'd have been disappointed though, it's not exactly a tropical paradise. The beaches are shell and mud with a bit of sand and the water is usually murky green.

    I didn't think this was appropriate for the other threads, too much pain there. This is more light-hearted sarcasm. :)
