Garner, Gary O. (2002) Feasibility Study: $300m Tourist Resort facility - "Clarkes Cove", Earlando via Proserpine, Whitsunday Region, Queensland.

Abstract

Feasibility Study investigating a large scale development on a property, known as "Clarke's Cove", Earlando via Proserpine, being a partly arable and limited improved, 387.9 hectare (958.52 acres) rural grazing (pastoral) property, with remnants of an avocado plantation existing on what is now a vacant, beef cattle grazing property. The property generally is contained within a very scenic, "natural amphitheatre" topography with the land boundary generally steeply sided and mountainous, containing a large relatively flat area in the centre, with a small white sandy beach located on the southern tip of the bays promontory pensinsula). The Dryander National Park backdrop features the 820m above SL Mt. Dryander. The property features a very wide variety of landscapes, from the white beach shoreline, to saltwater mangroves in the bay proper and mountainous terrain/rocky outcrops on the northern, western, and southern boundaries. The property and its bay is "technically" un-named, however has been known as Clarke's Cove by previous developers. A small island, known as Grassy Island (and another smaller one known as Little Grassy Island), is located just immediately north-west from the mouth of the bay - approximately 1.2 nautical miles from the nearest point on Clarke's Cove. This island adds generally to the natural beauty of the environment and outlook from the subject.
