Located about two hours by road from Rockhampton the freehold and rolling leasehold country holding has a double frontage to a bitumen road which runs parallel to the Bruce Highway.

Ruralco Property’s Rockhampton selling agent Bill Hamilton said the aggregation comprised of soft breeding and finishing country in a prime location.

“Nothing of this scale or quality has come to the market for many years and the aggregation includes numerous outstanding and appealing features,” Mr Hamilton said.

“Physically this aggregation offers the almost perfect balance of breeding, backgrounding and fattening country.

“This country has the ability to produce grass fed bullocks all year round.”

Mr Hamilton said the brigalow and scrub country totaled about 13,355ha with up to 1620ha of farming country to support the feedlot activities.

Water reliability is a key feature. A frontage to the Mackenzie River offers irrigation potential with the access of available irrigation rights. Stock water is supplied from about 130 dams, numerous bores, and semi-permanent water holes in the creek systems that cross the holding.

Pastures include green panic, buffel, butterfly pea on the scrub soils plus improved grasses, soft native pastures plus legumes on the forest country.

Laneway systems lead to one of the eight major sets of yards. Other improvements include the main homestead, three other houses, four sets of quarters, a helicopter hangar, sheds and storage facilities. The 999 head EU accredited feedlot is supported by silos, bunkers and hay storage.

The property is offered for sale with plant including bulldozers, machinery, trucks, tractors and trailers.
