A Jewel of the Atherton Tablelands

Walkamin, Lankester Plantations

Price on Application

Listing Number: LCH2285
About this listing
Lankester Plantations is a blue ribbon aggregation of premium quality, high performing horticultural land ideally situated in the well regarded Walkamin district of the Atherton Tableland.
This aggregation is offered on a Walk In Walk Out basis and It comprises of two farms located in close proximity, 3 freehold titles totalling 125.4 hectares, 4 Irrigation water licences totaling 391 Megalitres, new and modern design infrastructure including the award winning main homestead. The unique feature of this aggregation is the multi faceted production capabilities of Lady Finger Bananas, Custard Apples and Avocados.
Lankester Plantations is a diverse farming operation over 2 properties in close proximity to each other - Kennedy Highway Farm and Hansen Road Farm.
These fertile soils are predominantly fertile red volcanic with a small area of lighter alluvials and are considered to be some of the best on the Atherton Tableland.
Historically the farm was utilised for Lady Finger Banana production in its entirety, however in recent years a management decision to insure against single crop reliance was made and a successful crop diversification plan has been implemented. This multi-faceted crop production plan has resulted in Lankester Plantations farming a combination of Lady Finger Banana's, Custard Apples and most recently Avocados.
The modern infrastructure includes an award winning luxury pavillion main homestead, a four bedroom farmhouse, a fully service steel banana packing shed, a fully serviced steel custard apple packing shed, 4 large machinery sheds, several pump sheds and an older set of cattle yards.
In line with the progressive management techniques the owners have recently completed a large scale fencing project designed to keep a range of animal pests away from those crops most vulnerable.
The farming irrigation water is supplied from the Mareeba Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme. Licences totaling 391ML are in place for the two farms. All commercial crops are under a tree drip/sprinkler system which includes sand filters, automation, fertigation and water probe monitors.
The properties are being offered on a WIWO basis including an extensive list of plant, machinery and general equipment. Items range from large heavy duty plant to general tools - all being utilised in day to day operations.
