 Location: Situated 8klm west of Charters Towers on Diamantina Road

 Area: 331.7 ha (819.3 acres)

 Tenure: Freehold

 Country:

 High quality, fertile soils with strong pastures. Named after the “Homeward Bound” gold mine the property is situated in “Goldfields country”. It is slightly undulating and lightly timbered with Ironbark, Bloodwood and Sally Wattle. Well-established Stylos, Buffel, Urochloa, and native grass pasture ensure sound animal production outcomes.Quality deep black and red soils support good pastures and strong livestock production. A small seasonal creek, Homeward Bound Creek, bisects the property.

 There is a woody weed presence…  (Chinee Apple, Mimosa, isolated Prickly Acacia). 

 Services: Situated just 8klm 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 of the Dalrymple Shire. “Homeward Bound” is serviced from Diamantina Rd (4klm dirt road) from the Flinders Hwy, single-phase power and phone.  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 150,000 with diverse industry and opportunity for employment, business and higher education.

 Water: The property is well serviced by 2 bores equipped with submersible pumps operating at approx 25m (50-60ft). The main bore is solar powered and pumps to a high tank at the house thus supplying water for domestic and stock requirements. The second bore is rarely used but is also plumbed into the main poly line. It is estimated the bores are rated at 30,000 l/hr and 11,000 l/hr.

 Improvements:  Homeward Bound has significant infrastructure.

 House … Located on top of a fertile ridge with great views the 3-bedroom, brick block, air-conditioned home has a nicely shaded front lawn and Pergola from which to enjoy cool breezes and country living. The house was originally built as horse stables and converted to accommodation about 20 years ago.

 Visitors accommodation … located adjacent the house is a 13 metre, 2-bedroom, fully self-contained, demountable home. Though not in use it is in clean and in sound condition.

 Sheds … located immediately adjacent the house are three sheds.

  • 7m x 12m Steel frame, colour-bond, with roller doors.
  • 13m x 10m, steel framed, open all sides with two 6.5m shipping containers
  • 6m x 6m, steel frame, lockable.

 Fencing … A previous owner operated a Boer Goat stud and fenced the property accordingly. Much of the fencing to secure goats is constructed of 3-barb and Hinge-Joint. The property is fenced into 7 main paddocks. The southern boundary is new 3-barb and a new internal 3-barb is under construction. Fencing is generally in good condition.

 Stock Yards … Located immediately adjacent the house and sheds are a set of steel cattle yards and horse arena in good condition.

  • Currently running approx 30 horses and 30 cattle, Homeward Bound has and estimated carrying capacity of approx 80 cattle…. The property has recently been destocked.
