This waterfront property on Mooloolah Island in Minyama has sold for $6.5 million.


THE outgoing boss of one of the biggest poultry producers in the country has paid $6.5 million for a waterfront pad on the Sunshine Coast.

Records show a Victorian-based company in the name of John Hazeldene bought the property on exclusive Mooloolah Island in the affluent suburb of Minyama earlier this year.

The outdoor entertaining space overlooks the Mooloolah River.


Hazeldene is the outgoing managing director of Hazeldene’s Chicken Farm, which sold to private equity firm, BGH Capital, late last year in a deal worth about $400 million.

That gives Hazeldene more than enough cash to splash on a waterfront property like the four-bedroom, four-bathroom house on more than 1000 sqm on the idyllic Mooloolah River.

Mooloolah Island is an exclusive community of prestigious homes.


This luxurious home has multiple living spaces including a media room, a dining room, a family room, an office, and a games room with a bar.

Most rooms offer stunning views along the river and up to Mooloolaba.

There are views of the river from most rooms in the house.


Outside, there’s an inground lap pool, a spa, a huge deck overlooking the water and a private jetty and 10m pontoon.

Records show the property last sold in 2008 for $2,055 million.

The record home sale price for Minyama was recently smashed with the sale of a property at 9 Minyama Island for a whopping $12 million.

The home offers multiple living spaces.
