Whisper Bay's selection of world-class penthouses and three-bedroom plus study apartments and villas has already attracted more than $50 million in sales, not least of all thanks to captivating absolute ocean views. Among the first to have staked their claim in the Sydney-based Rory F O'Brien Development Group project, are former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, author Blanche D'Alpuget and television personality Matthew Johns. Recently Mr. Bill Malouf, L.J. Hookers National Award Winning agent was the first to buy one of the newly released Lagoon Apartments. Developer Rory O'Brien says Whisper Bay's absolute oceanfront location, the exceptional residential resort design by renowned architects Woodhead International, and the blossoming Airlie Beach township have proved an intoxicating blend for purchasers. Highlighting Bill Malouf's recent purchase, Mr. O'Brien said "If the No.1 Award Winning Hookers Agent in Australia buys one its really telling the market something about the quality of this project". The three-bedroom lagoon apartments, all with stunning ocean views, are priced between $1.5-$1.8 million.
