Our Story

Townsville Rentals, Ferry Property and Accom Townsville are all locally-grown, Townsville-proud businesses.

Managing Director Peter Wheeler has built a strong reputation in the Townsville real estate industry over the past 20-plus
years. Starting out in commercial, Peter established Samuel & Co in the 1990s, before bringing the highly regarded Colliers
International brand to Townsville in 2006. As Colliers International Townsville, Peter managed a robust commercial division
as well as a solid residential department.

In 2010, Peter and his associates established Townsville Rentals, a residential property management service separate to the
Colliers International Townsville office. Then, in 2014 Townsville Rentals acquired well-regarded boutique real estate agency
Ferry Property.

Ferry Property was established more than 30 years ago by Richard Ferry and associates, and has cultivated a longstanding
local reputation offering Townsville property buyers and sellers access to professional, knowledgeable, connected agents.
Richard Ferry remains connected to the company as an Associate Director working alongside Peter to drive all departments

Accom Townsville was established around 2004 as a boutique short-term accommodation provider, under the Ferry Property
umbrella. The business prides itself on personalised service and a genuine care for its customers.

Townsville Rentals and Ferry Property (including Accom Townsville) were each successful businesses, and the merging of the
two has meant Townsville Rentals is now one of Townsville’s largest property management agencies.

Today, the three businesses operate separately, but in support of each other.
