Fancy owning your own “mini motel” right next door to Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

Okay, it is not quite a motel but it has a total of 14 bedrooms – more than enough room to sleep some mates if Covid-19 strikes again and forces another major game to make the trip north – and the no vacancy signs to go up across town.

See, stumbling distance

Townsville scored a major coup when it was awarded hosting rights for game one of the 2021 State of Origin on June 9 due to the Covid-19 outbreak in Melbourne.

Over 27,000 fans packed the regional stadium, with many more forced to watch on from local pubs, bars and makeshift viewing parties.

Hotel rooms were booked out at warp speed, and a tent city was organised to ease the pressure on beds.

The atmosphere was electric – just don’t mention the final score.

On Perkins Street West in Railway Estate, this property is within stumbling distance of the stadium, and consists of a house and two duplexes, all on a 1818 sqm block of land right.

The duplex has four bedrooms upstairs, plus a bathroom, while downstairs are two further bedrooms and another bathroom.

There is also two undercover car spaces.

The duplex

And then there is the house, which has another four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a carport for two vehicles.

The house

Combined, the house and duplex are pulling in $1280 a week in rent, with long-term tenants in place.

“The options are endless,” the listings says.

“You can keep everyone there and just be happy with the return.

“You could live in one and rent the rest out.

“You could also put your own business in here and could you imagine how effective a large billboard on your own land would be that’s right beside the new stadium.”

Business opportunity

It is listed for $825,000 with LJ Hooker Townsville agent Clint Wallis.

State of Origin Game 2 will be played at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday.

Game 3 is scheduled to be played in Sydney on July 14, but with the city grappling a new Covid-19 outbreak, who knows where the final game will be played.
