Charters Towers is an historic city established in the gold rush of the 1880's and still services the large Gold Mining and Grazing Industries of the Dalrymple Shire. For cattleman, the weekly liveweight selling centre in Charters Towers, Live Export ex Townsville (130km) and Townsville meatworks are all major attractions for this location. Townsville is a vibrant city of approx 150,000 with diverse industry and opportunity for employment, business and higher education. Homestead & Gardens: The 4-bedroom, immaculately maintained, timber Homestead is set off the ground and was constructed by the current owners in 1993.

The lawn and garden area is huge and features large established shade trees and several garden beds all watered via the mains powered bore or an elevated 30000gal tank. Much of the garden is connected to in-ground 'dripper' irrigation pipes.

Quality deep black and red soils support good pastures and strong livestock production. A small seasonal creek (Scrubby Creek) meanders through part of the property. A significant feature of this property is the absence of woody weeds and the presence of flourishing pastures providing ideal cattle grazing country with minimal maintenance. Rainfall: Vendors records indicate an average rainfall of 650mls (over the last 17 years). Water: The property is well serviced by 5 bores and a small dam. Three of the bores are equipped with Jet Pumps (1 Mains power, 2 petrol motors) and service the homestead gardens and livestock requirements.
