Sydney socialites are returning home from their luxury summer holidays, some having spent time at the increasingly popular Noosa playground — along with a quick trip to the US snowfields.
Jaclyn Gazal, the wife of Bellevue Hill rag trader David Gazal, and older sister to Housewives of Sydney star Krissy Marsh, is the latest southerner to buy at Noosa.

Gazal was the $23.25 million buyer of Hancock Prospecting Daniel Wade’s riverfront escape in the Queensland holiday hotspot. It sold through Rebekah Offermann of Tom Offermann Real Estate in just 12 days on market pre-Christmas.
Wade, who is Gina Rinehart’s right-hand man, had bought the Mossman Court riverfront for $10.91 million in 2020.
Designed by Paul Clout, the luxury retreat has 572sq m of living space with a courtyard pool, plus 20m beach with pontoon overlooking Noosa Sound.
The Gazal family’s clothing label Bisley Workwear, which sold hi-vis vests, was sold in late 2021 to PIP Global.
Marsh, who modelled in her younger days in Queensland as Kristen Billinghurst, squeezed in time away at Whistler and Noosa, where she owns two houses.
She spent $9.8 million in 2019, then adding a home across the road last year for $7 million to be used by extended family when not a rental.
Marsh, who was a Sydney commercial estate agent from the late 1990s, was dubbed the “Property Princess” after the 2017 premiere of Housewives on Foxtel.
Although more popular with Melburnians, Sydneysiders who own at Noosa include charity worker Skye Leckie, stock picker Geoff Wilson and accountant Anthony Bell.
