AN opportunity has emerged to buy a substantial, safe and productive grazing property in South West Queensland.
Located 60km north of Quilpie via Adavale Red Road, the renowned wool growing and grazing property covers 49,317 hectares (121,862 acres).
The property is made up of predominantly sandy loamy type mulga country with flooded mulga flats which makes the property such a good breeding place with seasonal fattening.
The aggregation is described as having an excellent mixture of soft low edible mulga and flooded flats. Most of the property is sandy loamy red soil with some black soil swamps and flats.
There is a good mixture of grasses including mulga Mitchell, mulga oats, button grass, neverfail, wire grass, woolly but and an abundance of herbages with winter rain. Timbers include mulga, bloodwood, beefwood, ironbark, gidyea, false sandalwood and box.
Water is supplied from 11 dams, six bores, and a further 30km of pipelined water off a shared bore supplying 22 troughs. Trapping is in the process around waters and future potential to trap all property.
The carrying capacity is estimated at 1400 cows and calves or the sheep equivalent. About 85 per cent brandings and majority of the cattle can be trapped on waters are big positives of this place.
Fenced into 13 main paddocks and five holding paddocks. Most fencing is good to new predominantly four plain and two barb. Some stock proof netting fences are still in place.
The four bedroom main homestead is surrounded by a beautiful garden. A new single persons’ quarters and school room are also located close to the homestead. There is also a car shed, 14x8m shed, and horse yards.
There is another homestead located close to the cattle yards, a lowset two bedroom home with sleep out, car shed, and quarters.
Improvements include a new set of 1000 head steel cattle yards with a seven way draft and crush and branding cradle. A laneway runs from the holding paddocks to yards. There is also a set of sheep yards and five stand shearing shed.
