THE auction of Anthony and Susan Moody’s 6296 hectare (15,557 acre) central western Queensland property Hathaway is sure to receive plenty of interest in the run up to its auction by Elders in Blackall on April 7.
Hathaway is described as premier grazing country in the heart of the tightly held Barcaldine/Aramac district, boasting rich soft fertile chocolate soils.
The grazing homestead perpetual lease comprises of lightly shaded boree, whitewood, vine tree open downs with a small percentage of gidgee on the north east area of the property.
The property is located 41km north east of Barcaldine and 43km south east of Aramac. It is situated within a cluster fence, offering buyers the opportunity to diversify with both sheep and cattle. It is divided into 11 paddocks and two holding paddocks.
Hathaway is estimated to carry 600 breeders or the dry cattle/sheep equivalent.
The air conditioned four bedroom homestead has been renovated including a new kitchen. The homestead boasts a large veranda on the southern side and an entertaining area on the northern side. The homestead is set in an established garden.
Other improvements include a six stand shearing shed and yards, seven room shearers quarters, hay shed, machinery shed, shipping container, five bay car garage, and workshop. There are steel and mesh cattle yards with loading ramp, crush and calf cradle as well as horse yards and old saddle room.
Water is a feature of the property. There are two capped flowing bores. One reticulates to troughs, the other services a bore drain and is also piped to tanks and troughs. There is also a semi permanent hole in Aramac Creek on the north east side of the property.
Marketing agent Daven Vohland said Hathaway was a premier property in the tightly held Barcaldine/Aramac district.
“Hathaway is in close proximity to major selling centres in Blackall and Longreach, resulting in freight cost efficiency, and is securely fenced within the cluster,” Mr Vohland said.
“Consistently producing heavy weight gains and excellent returns on progeny, it is ideal for breeding, fattening or backgrounding. The opportunity also exists to graze sheep or run a mixed grazing operation.”
