A small, picturesque Australian village has been listed for sale, attracting interest from China and Singapore, with its new buyer set to own dozens of homes, a lake full of fish and 35 highland cattle.

Property agent John Blacklow told The Straits Times that two "separate individuals" from Singapore are among the prospective buyers for this tourism site in the heart of Tasmania state. Tarraleah, which agents said brings in an annual revenue of A$2.1 million (S$2.2 million), has no permanent residents today - only tourism-related staff, the Agence France-Presse reported.

Property agents said they hoped the 145.5ha village - less than one-third the size of Sentosa island - would fetch up to A$13 million (S$13.7 million).
