Karaoke stages, waterfalls and Turkish bathhouses – five baller Queensland pads that you can call yours

We’ve all fantasised of living in a huge mansion with enough rooms to get lost in. In reality, however, our budgets are a little (lot) more modest – though it doesn’t hurt to dream. With a little help from a certain search engine, we can have a sneak peek at extravagant addresses that just scream luxury.

So if you've got a spare $8 (or $45) million lying around, time to get out the cheque book and live your Tony Montana dreams. If not, it might be time to arrange that sugar daddy. more
