The palatial residence in Carrara is listed on for $360 a night.

The group from Brisbane turned the Fitzwilliam Street holiday rental into the set of a music video.
“There was gangster rap and RnB pounding out,” one neighbour said.
“You could hear people screaming and shouting and having a good time, obviously.”
But the law came calling.
Neighbours said the renters held a party.(9News)
On Friday night, seven young men were each hit with a $1300 fine for social distancing breaches.
On Saturday, 18 people in the house were hit with the same, for a grand total of $33,000 in fines.
Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll called the behaviour “completely unacceptable”.
