Mining billionaire Gina Rinehart is understood to have paid $18 million for two adjoining properties on the Brisbane River.
  • One is a $14 million luxurious mini palace at 46-48 Aaron Avenue, Hawthorne, which sits on more than 3400 square metres of land.
  • This purchase alone smashes the $11.2 million Brisbane record house price of 2007.
  • But Ms Rinehart is believed to have spent spent another $4 million on the block of land next door - a buffer zone to create more privacy.

The consolidation of both properties means Ms Rinehart will be able to enjoy more than 4000 square metres of prime riverfront land.
