$1m QLD donor to coronavirus cure fund just a country boy at heart

first_imgI built my home when I was mayor in 1984 on four blocks of land — it’s pretty big. It’s a five-bedroom house with a formal lounge and dining room, family room, rumpus area, and 200sq m outdoor area. There’s a tennis court and a pool, but no water in it. I love the design of my home and everything faces north. It’s built for comfort.

If money was no option, what would be your fantasy home and where? Mr Berghofer’s home town Toowoomba is quiet as travel and stay at home restrictions of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic are felt, Picture: Kevin Farmer 3. What would you change about your home? I live in Wilsonton in Toowoomba, where I built the Wilsonton Hotel. It was built in six weeks and opened in December 1972. The hotel went on to have the largest licence fee of any hotel in Australia. I sold four times more liquor than any hotel in Australia. I designed it and I ran it. I built a shopping centre to the surrounds of the hotel in 1976. I live in Qantas Court. I have developed more than 10,000 allotments in Toowoomba and I name the streets after aircraft.

What is the best thing about your suburb? Money is no object to me. I am quite happy where I am. I bought a unit at a retirement place at Palm Lakes about 18 months ago, but I haven’t moved in yet.

What was the best piece of property advice you were given? Or what was the biggest lesson you learned? Affordability. A lot of people these days are not living within their means. When I started building houses in 1959, if you had a carport you were well off. If you had more than one toilet it was a good thing. Young people want everything these days.last_img read more
