The Darling Downs is a fertile farming region on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range in southern Queensland. The Downs are to the west of South East Queensland and are one of the major regions of Queensland. Approx. 1 hour to the Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba and 15 minutes to Warwick.
First time to the market, the property is a multi-purpose enterprise for the astute buyer.
Essential water is catered for with a 42 MEG Condamine River License Allocation and 2 equipped bores pumping 3,500 and 5,500 GPH and established dam and cement troughs. The Condamine River forms the back boundary of the property.
Purchased by the family as a cultivation and grass property to complement their Charity endeavours, the freehold property covers 36.2 hectares (89.5 acres).
Diversification is central to the operations of this holding. The Australian dairy goat industry is relatively small, but there is an increasing consumer demand for healthy and exotic dairy products:
• Dairy Cow Complex converted to Dairy Goat Farming - 10 milking bays, water, 3 phase power, operating equipment, milk storage vats, cool rooms all under cover with cement floors, holding and feed yards and bins, water troughs, 2 feed silos, access for large vehicles or tanker and effluent disposal system and ponds with night yards under lights.
• Secure Canine Boarding and Breeding Kennels - 11 dog runs, undercover storage and Whelping centre, concrete floors with water, electricity and drainage.
• Scope to establish an Equestrian or Livestock Stud utilising the infrastructure, land and water.
Improvements include some renovations to the grand Queenslander home, renovated stunning kitchen with massive stove and walk in pantry, air-conditioned 4 bedroom homestead and gorgeous fireplace with 'unqiue' undercover entertainment area with 5,000 litre rain water tank.
The country has varying loamy soils grassed with seca, lucerne, fodder crops and native pastures. About 75 acres has been sown to lucerne/fodder crops.
In the past three years a water central mains infrastructure upgrade was undertaken with additional water storage and pipe upgrades resulting in the property being securely watered through underground water mains to suit hard hose.
The water system greatly enhances paddock utilisation with the addition of 3 phase power throughout the property.
The steel cattle yards have a loading ramp, draft, under cover crush, round yard and branding race. Water is supplied by troughs in the yards.
The property is divided into 12 cell paddocks and three 4 holding paddocks along the river with a lane way system in the centre of the property that leads back to the cattle yards.
There is also a machinery shed and workshop and a high storage shed.
A comprehensive inventory list of equipment is available upon request.
