Land which was once to be home to Gunns' controversial Tamar Valley pulp mill has been placed on the market.
Gunns' receivers KordaMentha has moved to sell the industrial-zoned land in parcels: 892 hectares on the banks of the Tamar River near two woodchip mills and another 13.85 hectare parcel off the East Tamar Highway in George Town.
The larger parcel already has $25 million worth of development upon it which included land levelling, roadwork, and links to waste-water treatment and telecommunication facilities.
KordaMentha had failed to find a buyer for the site and pulp mill permits after Gunns folded in 2012 and before the permits were eventually declared invalid last year.
This was despite a late bid by Labor in 2011 to keep the $1.3 million project alive by extending the project's permits.
Gunns bought the land in 2007 for the pulp mill which attracted strong opposition from a range of community groups and years of protest.
Knight Frank partner Robert Dixon said the land could provide opportunities investors in the agricultural, renewable energy, minerals, manufacturing and logistics sectors but couldn't put financial value on a property.
"Under the expressions of interest process, we haven't had instruction from the vendor on a price expectation and we haven't given one to them," he said.
"It's such an unique site so it's up to what value a potential buyer sees in it."
He said before KordaMentha handed over sales duties to Knight Frank, the liquidators had received six international enquiries on the last over 18 months.
Mr Dixon said Thursday's advertisement has sparked more national and international calls.
“We believe that from the interest already shown in the sites, the properties will provide opportunities for a wide array of industries including investors in the agricultural, renewable energy, minerals, manufacturing and logistics sectors,” Knight Frank partner Robert Dixon said.
“There has been significant capital invested to date.
"Noting the location, accessibility to utility services and the opportunities presented by its proximity to with the port, the offering will be considered by investors looking to capitalise on the strengthening economic environment in Tasmania.”
The land parcels are being offered individually or collectively.
An expressions of interest process will close on April 4.
