The site of the former QT Resort swimming pool and gym has been sold to a mystery buyer after being on the market for just three months.

The site includes the 25 metre lap pool, two tennis courts, a gym and 1.7 hectares of land.

Listing agent, Callum Jones, said he can’t reveal too much about the sale at this stage but said there will be changes at the site in the near future.

“The property is sold and is due to settle at the end of the year so business as usual until then,” he said.

“I am unsure of what the new owners will do to the site but they will be looking at doing something, therefore, the current usage as gym, pool, and tennis courts will likely change from 2020 onwards.”

The lap pool, gym, and a portion of the gardens between the new Oaks Resort and Reef Resort hit the market in January this year. 

The parcel was up for sale for the first time in 20 years and there were some calls for Council to buy it to transform it into a public pool.

However, someone else has scooped the land up and the future of the site will no doubt be watched eagerly.
