So foreign ownership is foreign to the Turks? No real assets hey. I suppose you need to own something before you can sell anything.

There are a number of Islands for sale in Tropical North Queensland, they change hands regularly e.g. Lizard Island, Double Island just changed hands the buyers are Chinese, Dunk Island has just sold again and there are numerous Islands off the coast of Queensland for sale or privatley owned, so what's new? Also the owners can not just run amok and do what they please,and another thing the boundary is only to the High Tide mark.

Exactly right, usually it's a 100 year lease and the by-laws are usually more stringent than suburban areas
