Lifestyle & outstanding commercial opportunity adjacent the largest city in Northern Australia ….

 The opportunity will suit the following:

  •  Developers with immediate use for the DA
  • Investors seeking passive income returns … via third parties to develop and lease the DA
  • Investors to actively develop the land asset with/without the DA.
  • Strategic Land Bankers looking for immediate lifestyle but with long-term capital growth.

‘Idle Downs’ is located just south of Townsville and has all weather bitumen road access off Booth Road to the south-west bound Flinders Highway. The property suits anybody seeking country living with a tropical environment in a location just minutes from a large regional city … retirees, working commuters, farmers & graziers, commercial developers.

 ‘Idle Downs’ is 10 minutes’ drive to residential suburbs and 20 km to the Townsville CBD, Strand Beach Precinct and the Harbour. It has 2km frontage to Booth Rd and 1.4km frontage to the Flinders Highway and is situated between a Rural Residential suburb and the Satellite City of ‘Elliott Springs’.

 Area, Tenure & Rates:

 281.11ha (694.34 acres) Freehold Lot 4 RP731185

 Development …

From a financial investment perspective, the outstanding opportunity for this property is the commercial development. As one of Townsville’s largest and closest rural land parcels ‘Idle Downs’ is indeed a potentially very valuable location. As a “Land Bank” the property may provide future generations with exciting capital growth.

 Triple Roadtrain access already in place.

An approved Development Approval (Agricultural Industries) is in place and will allow potentially massive infrastructure and business opportunities.

The DA provides for a Processing and Storage Facility for the following:

  • Receipt of rural products.
  • Storage of rural products.
  • Process and packing for rural products
  • Transportation of rural products to the end users or potentially the Port of Townsville

 Lifestyle: 

“Idle Downs” is an attractive property in a quiet rural community which lends itself to many and varied farming and lifestyle choices.

 From a rural lifestyle perspective, the numerous sheds, the beautiful homestead, tidy gardens, graveled driveways and overall presentation will impress. The 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-storey, masonry block homestead has been stylishly renovated with alfresco dining overlooking the new inground pool and cattle paddocks. The quality of improvements is exceptional, and nothing has been left to chance.

 At the southern end of the property runs Anthill Creek, a small seasonal creek, that runs for much of the year. The property is predominantly timbered with Poplar Gum and scattered Ironbark, Cabbage Gum and Beefwood with the occasional understory of Tea Tree. There is a woody weed (Chinee Apple) management programme in place and much has already been eliminated.

 The grazing land is well covered with Seca Stylo, Wynn Cassia and Spear Grass while the dam frontage supports a large presence of Hymenachne & Paragrass suitable for higher stocking rates. The large permanent dam on the property offers prime grazing frontage and is home to many water bird species. A feature of the property is wildlife and water birds.

 The average carrying capacity is approximately 120 adult cattle in average seasons

 Infrastructure

 Industrial Shed:

Lockable, newly constructed, industrial sized, steel frame, metal cladded shed … approx 1200sqm under roof

Farm Sheds:

 Cattle yards:

There is a newly installed set of Black River cattle yards (150 head capacity) with undercover vet crush, pound draft, with holding squares and a short laneway leading to the larger paddocks.

 Note: Complete listing details including DA, Shed plans etc available on request … Contact Agent:
