An appealing river side property well suited to the rural retiree or city-based person seeking country living only minutes from town. The infrastructure lends itself to use by a builder or rural contractor with a requirement for this location.

Location: Brolga Park is one of very few lifestyle properties with immediate and direct access to the Burdekin River…. actually, it accesses a Burdekin anabranch which provides extremely secure water and lifestyle.

With bitumen frontage to the Lynd Highway and only 20 km north from Charters Towers the property accesses all the services of a regional town (population approx 9000 people). Schooling, both primary and secondary, are a feature of the Charters Towers community with the town boasting three Private Schools, the State High School and three State Primary Schools

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. For cattleman, the weekly liveweight selling centre in Charters Towers, Live Export ex Townsville (130klm) and Townsville meatworks are all major attractions for this location. Townsville is a vibrant city of approx 200,000 with diverse industry and opportunity for employment, business and higher education.

 Area & Tenure: Freehold 8.81 ha or (21.8ac).

 Homestead: This immaculately presented weather board home is a combination of two historic Nth Qld buildings … the Clark River Post Office and the Mt Surprise Railway house. The buildings were moved to Brolga Park then joined and fully renovated in 2015-2016 period by the current owners Dean & Kim Brook, Landbrook Constructions. Due to business commitments the Brook Family have moved away and subsequently decided to sell. 

The renovation job has been a ‘no expense spared project’ having stripped and repainted, replaced timber, re-wired the entire building, polished timber floors, re-roofing including full insulation, new kitchen, bathrooms … etc, etc. The end result is a beautiful country homestead overlooking the bushland with no close neighbours and room to move. The 4-Bedroom Homestead has an upstairs attic, an office, 1 ½ bathrooms, a huge open plan dining/kitchen/entertaining area, is air-conditioned throughout, has ceiling fans throughout, has 3 ½ metre wide verandas on 4 sides and is surrounded by beautifully maintained lawns … all of which is in an elevated position overlooking a small seasonal creek. 

The kitchen is equipped with microwave, dishwasher, wall oven, benchtop stove, new cabinets with Queensland Maple timber benchtops. Three of the four bedrooms are carpeted, and each have a very large walk-in robe/dressing area adjacent. It’s a comfortable home full of natural light and, unlike most weather board ‘Queenslanders’, the work has already been done … by professional builders. 

Country: Brolga Park has a combination of Goldfields red and black soils, decomposed granite soil and river frontage loams and is timbered with Currajong, Burdekin Plum, Moreton Bay, Box, Ironbark, Bloodwood, Sally Wattle, Yellow Wood and various native shrubs. Pasture is dominated by Buffel grass and various natives. 

The western half of the property is flat and fertile so would comfortably support small numbers of livestock. A small seasonal creek bisects the property with some soil erosion evident in the sloping land approaching the anabranch.

 Woody weed control is good however, as with all river frontage properties, there is a woody weed presence on the frontage which requires constant attention.


Rainfall:The district rainfall is approx 640mm/yr. See attached BOM records for Charters Towers.

 Water: Water quality and quantity is a feature of Brolga Park. Having frontage to, and Riparian Water Rights from, the Burdekin anabranch waterhole is permanent. There is never going to be a water supply problem for livestock and domestic purposes as the waterhole is reputedly 8 metres deep and kilometres long.

Recently the vendors installed a 4-panel solar system powering a submersible centrifugal pump which pumps continuously, in daylight hours, therefore filling tanks and watering the garden. The water travels a 50mm poly pipeline from the river for approximately 400m to the house tank. A mains-powered Davey pressure pump ensures water pressure to house, gardens and livestock troughs. Alternatively, the garden can be watered with solar pump pressure only. 

Fencing & Yards: Fenced is mainly 3-barb and the property is fenced into three paddocks. Fencing is in good condition. The are no cattle yards on the property.

 Stables: Immaculately constructed using galvanised steel posts and rail, with colorbond roof and walls and cement floor in the tack room this 2-horse stable and tack room and day yard provides a comfortable all-weather home for ponies or work horses.

 Shed: Again, immaculately constructed of galvanised posts and roof framing, with colourbond roof and walls and cement floor, this 22m x 22m shed is a quality building. On one end of the shed is a lockup section with sliding doors 7m x 22m in dimension and the remainder is open on all sides and would be ideal to house machinery.

 Dog Kennels: The property has two adjacent dog runs, with 1.8-meter secure fence and closed in shed/kennels at one end. They each measure approx 10m x 30m.

 Livestock: NIL included in the sale.

 Plant & Machinery: NIL is included in the sale.

 Agent remarks:

The Anabranch offers terrific, fishing, boating, swimming and entertaining opportunities. Lifestyle sized properties with river frontage are few, and rarely come onto the market. With the wonderful homestead and room to move Brolga Park offers a unique situation to retire, raise a family, work in town, educate the kids in town, or operate a home-based business … all the while enjoying this easy paced lifestyle. Endless possibilities.
