With their trip to Australia inching ever closer, speculation has reached fever pitch as to where Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex will spend their time Down Under in October.

And while some suggestions have pointed towards Noosa - where Meghan Markle's Suits co-star Gabriel Macht has a property - others are now looking towards a residence enjoyed by the Duke of Gloucester in 1934.

Bunderim House in the Sunshine Coast hinterland has plenty to offer insofar as it boasts stunning views, luxurious gardens and 6315 square metres for the royal couple to relax in.

Built around 1913 on the highest point of the northern slope of Mount Buderim, overlooking the Maroochy coast and river valley, Bunderim House has hosted countless nobility in the past.

When the Duke of Gloucester visited the Sunshine Coast in 1934, he stayed in the five-bedroom, four-bathroom house.

Since then, it has been renovated by the current owners Tim and Jackie Banks, who turned it from a rundown commercial function space into a beautiful, family-friendly property.

At present, Bunderim House boasts an office, a built-in bar and commercial wine fridge, five-vehicle lockup accommodation and a large resort-style pool and spa. 

There is also a games room, plenty of space for entertaining, and countless nods to tradition design - including a grand entrance, 'handsome fireplaces', high ceilings, silky oak cabinetry and French doors.
