Outstanding Views-Lifestyle living or grazing with potential

Emu Creek, 5227 New England Highway


Listing Number: LHD2966
About this listing
25km nth of Crows Nest, 75km to Toowoomba, in four freehold titles. Access off NE Highway, and Rocky Gully Road. Rainfall average is around 700mm.
Main access via New England Highway, via Perkin Road
Access to lot 39 is via Rocky Gully Rd at the eastern end of the property
Undulating country with mostly open grazing areas and gullies that have been cleared of Lantana over the years. Further clearing of scattered lantana is possible across the area so that improved pasture can be established and allow existing stands of Qld bluegrass to flourish.

Timber is predominately Narrow Leaf Iron Bark, with scattered ficus, kurrajong and apple box in the gullies and watercourse areas.
Qld Blue grass is across the property. Other grasses noted are couch, kikuyu and paspalum, native herbage and trefoils. Soil types, of basalt origin, are variable with extensive areas of black/grey black loams, some previously cultivated, red brown loams with some areas of lighter sandy loam.

Water supply consists of four bores of which two are equipped and operational. Two other bores are not in operation. Both bores in operation have tank and troughs. There are also 4 dams.

Boundary fencing around the property is in good order with some recently renewed on the southern boundary.

Internal fences vary from wood post with 3 barbs and one plain to older fences all of which are in need of repair.

A set of timber yards, with crush, and loading race is located at the southern end of lot 444 with access via Perkin Road, off NE Highway.

In addition there is a quantity of hardwood timber for fencing materials available on the property for on farm use.

This area has huge potential either to develop as lifestyle living, a grazing block or as additional area. Lantana control will be necessary, but the benefits can be clearly demonstrated by the control previously undertaken and the excellent stands of grass across the property.

Being within an hour from Toowoomba it could be an attractive proposition, with all services within easy reach.
