‘High Downs’- 280ac/ 113.31ha
This 280 acre property is close to the Capricorn Highway and only 25klm West of Gracemere and has the capacity to carry 70-80 backgrounders or 35-40 breeders.
It is fenced into 16 paddocks with 3 & 4 barb and electric fencing in good to almost new condition. Balanced pasture improvement is a highlight of this property combining forest country of bluegrass, spear grass, seca stylo (40%), and Verona stylo shaded by Iron Bark, Box and Bloodwood trees and with creek flats predominately of Buffel, wincasia legumes and green panic.
There is a solid set of timber and steel cattle yards with vet crush, loading ramp and head bale which makes working cattle a breeze. There are 4 control grazing cells presently operating to facilitate improved production returns and enhance the diversity of “High Downs”.
Water is a feature here with a well in Sandy Creek being pumped out by 200 and 300-watt solar panels reticulating to troughs and main house.
To top all of this off there is a modern steel-framed/ cladded, 3 bedroom air-conditioned home with verandahs, rural outlook, 2 carports and 12,000gal storage tank.
A comfortable 2 bedroom cottage with bathroom and 7,000gal water tank and a 12 x 12m machinery shed with 3 phase power connected.
If you are looking to establish yourself closer to the Beef Capital of Rockhampton then I highly recommend an inspection of this property to fully appreciate its many attributes.
