Location: Amber is 55 km north of Mt Surprise, 100 km west of Mt Garnet. Amber is relatively close to strategic business destinations such as Cairns (300km), Mareeba (200km), Sugarbag Spelling & Clearing Yards (70km), Charters Towers, Townsville & Hughenden (450km) and Karumba (500km) to supply saleyards, meatworks, live export and grass fattening markets. A major plus for the property is the proximity of Mt Garnet (100km) based Stocklick Trading for all supplementary feed requirements. Tenure: Rolling Term Lease - Term 40yrs commencing 14.1.2014 expiry 13.1.2054 Area: 103,000ha or 254,410acres Power: Rural power supplies the homestead complex Schooling: The Mount Surprise State School is located 60km from Amber. The school has two teaching staff (principal & one teacher) with two Teacher Aides and covers Prep to Grade six. Rainfall: Approx 800mm (30inches) pa. The 2015/16 wet season measured the long-term average of 30inches. Country: The dominant feature of Amber is the 30km +/- double frontage to the spring fed Lynd River with year round springfed inflow from Fossilbrook & Saltwater Creeks. Additionally the Fulford River, Eight-Mile Creek, numerous gullies and rock holes provide seasonal waterholes and valuable grazing frontages. The landscape is punctuated by numerous creek and river flats growing Townsville & Seca Stylos, Black Spear, White Spear, Kangaroo grasses and numerous native edible shrubs. Amber is mostly timbered with Narrow-leaf and Silver-leaf Ironbark, Bloodwood, Ironwood and Box with areas of Tea-tree and Wattle scattered throughout. The property is intersected by ranges and rocky outcrops with soil types being mainly decomposed granite, sandy soils, alluvial watercourse frontages and an area of basalt soil. PMAV: There is an area, adjacent the homestead complex, of approx 2000ha (5000ac) cleared and under a PMAV. The eucalypt regrowth needs attention, however this area does lend itself to further development and improved pasture establishment. Water: The property is largely naturally watered from extensive permanent and semi-permanent rivers and creeks. Double frontage to the spring fed Lynd River runs the length to the property with year round springfed inflow from Fossilbrook & Saltwater Creeks.House bore: Equipped with Jet Pump, connected to Rural Power – not in use.House water supply is pumped from Fossilbrook Ck .There is an extensive network of 26 dams which completes the stock watering matrix. In addition to the man-made waters there are a number of Springs. Structures: The main home is an older style 3 bedroom house, renovated in recent years. Guest accommodation is an airconditioned 1-bedroom donga in new condition Worker accommodation is a 4-bedroom lowset home in fair condition located close to Fossilbrook Creek. Three older sheds include car accommodation and a 4-bay machinery shed. Fencing & Cattle yards: Amber has an extensive 80km network of laneways and holding squares around the strategic dams and waters thereby facilitating ease of mustering, low labour requirement and low costs. Approx 50% of the property is fenced into 5 paddocks while the other 50% is managed via the laneway/holding paddock plan. The property is not fully boundary fenced. There are 3 sets of permanent cattle yards … Homestead Yards, Old Amber Yards (located on Lynd River) and Quartz-blow Yards…. . The remainder of the property is serviced with portable yards moved from site to site as required, and at locations adjacent the permanent holding paddocks and laneways. Carrying Capacity: Amber consistently runs around 4-5000 mixed cattle. Livestock included: A Brahman cross herd of 2000 mixed cattle is included in the sale of the property. Agent Comment: Water surety on Amber Station is almost without compare. With further fencing, water, stylo seeding and a supplementary feeding programme, Amber has further potential. The property is ideally placed to provide a reliable supply of weaners to a southern fattening property.
