Current owner has been breeding Brahman-Droughtmaster cattle since 2003, carrying up to 120 head, but ideally would service 80 head comfortably. There are other uses for the property that could extend to bottling natural spring water - as the property boasts an uncontaminated permanent water supply via natural springs, timber production, eco-tourism, and other agribusiness scenarios.
The soil is fertile, the property's northern aspect maximises natural light, and it is 80% cleared. It adjoins the end of the Noosa Trail - a horse-riding trail that stretches from the property to Lake MacDonald at Cooroy; there are possibilities here that could extend to short-term accommodation and similar.
Owner has raised his family here and is now retiring, fondly farewelling this truly special property that holds so many cherished memories. This is an exceptional property, and an outstanding opportunity to invest in a lifestyle change to savour for many years to come
