AUSTRALIAN TV icons John Cornell and Delvene Delaney are selling the three "best beach-front blocks in Byron Bay" which are expected to fetch in excess of $2 million each.

The couple have also placed on the market 41 housing sites at nearby Ewingsdale with frontage onto Parkway Drive, McGettigans Lane and St Helena Rd.

The three prime beachfront blocks are on Border St Belongil, known as "millionaire's row".

"I'm 72 and I'm clearing the decks for my wife and girls to make everything easier," said Mr Cornell in a statement through his selling agent Glen Irwin from LJ Hooker Byron Bay.

"The land for sale at Fig Tree Fields was a subdivision which I bought 25 years ago, so if you want a large block where wallabies drop by and Mother Nature lives next door, get in quick.

"My wife is selling part of her beach-front holding at Belongil to realise her long-term investment, as long-term has arrived.

"Instead of 26 Paddington-size blocks, they've been amalgamated into five. Three are for sale.

"They are the best beach-front blocks in Byron Bay, according to the State Government which charged $150,000 a year land tax."

Mr Irwin said the blocks were worth at least $2 million each.
