A Chinese developer has attempted to limit tourist access to a public beach despite having no control over it.

China Bloom purchased a lease to a portion of Keswick Island, off the coast of Queensland, in 2019.

The developer installed a sign in the water of Basil Bay prohibiting boats from entering, instead claiming the waters are strictly for Keswick Island residents and guests.

The bay is a beloved tourist destination which is often frequented by boats visiting from the mainland.
