Find something curious…
Yes really!! And no, you won't find the cacophony of sounds like the nursery rhyme. This is serious grazing country and the family is looking to retire so reluctantly they want to sell the remaining 372 acres (150.71ha) of their original Biggenden dairy farm.
Rising from the black and chocolate soils on the edges of the flood plain, to the deep red of the basalt rich ridges. The property is covered in all directions with a good body of feed following recent rains. Currently on agistment are about 40 head of cattle but this property would carry 80+ breeders with progeny to weaning. The ample pastures of Signal, Rhodes, Black Spear and Blue grasses is under sown with Wynn Cassia and Seca Stylo.
Further improvement is possible with the re-invigoration of the irrigation infrastructure which covers most of the Eastern side of the holding. A bore equipped with a 3 phase electric motor is capable of 10,000gph. 4 inch underground mains feeds 12 hydrants through the pasture. Three other bores dot the landscape and are unequipped, but are estimated to have at least 7000gph capacity.
Most of the dairy equipment is still in situ but would require renovation, should that be your desire. The dairy shed is complemented by the fully concreted yard with vet crush and loading ramp.
The brick veneer home is set among well kept lawns and fruit orchard. A high producing grape vine adorns the back fence. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms, all with built in robes. The main bedroom has air conditioning. There is a combined kitchen and dining area and a large living room. The former double garage has been enclosed and screened for a rumpus or extra bed space for the relatives that will surely visit this piece of paradise. 10,000 gallons of rainwater supplies the house whilst the gardens and toilets are equipped with bore water.
There is two road frontage and all only three kilometres to the thriving metropolis of Biggenden where there is shopping, a hospital and doctors, primary school, transport and saleyards, meatworks and feedlots.
High School is 44 km to Childers or Maryborough is 89km away. You could be watching whales at Hervey Bay in 90 minutes.
A separate title already exists at the Southern end of the property and this could be bought or sold separately if desired. It has road access, power across the block and 2 of the unequipped bores are part of this.
This wonderful piece of land lends itself to almost anything. A stud, bull depot, grazing, hay making or return to dairying. Some machinery is available upon negotiation with the vendor. Priced at $799,000 L/N7489
