An appealing grazing or property development opportunity well suited to the rural retiree, city-based person seeking lifestyle and investment options… or just another ‘paddock’ for an established grazier.

Location: With bitumen frontage to the Clermont Highway and only 13 km south 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.

Country: Undulating Red & Black soil Goldfields country lightly timbered with Bloodwood, Ironbark and Box with creek frontage timbered by Black Tea Tree and large Paperbarks. Pastures include Black Spear grass, Indian Couch and Seca Stylo The property has 4km double frontage to the headwaters of the Broughton River and several smaller creeks also contribute to the overall soil fertility of “Jakeys”. 

Water: Watered by springs and waterhole in the Broughton River which bisects the property. Additionally, there are two solar equipped bores – one pumping into a tank and troughs near yards, and one pumping into a dam. 

Rainfall: The district rainfall is approx 640mm/yr.  

Fencing & Cattle Yards: Fenced using 3-barb into two (2) main paddocks. Fencing along the Gregory Development road is in good condition, as are the limited internal fences. Boundary fencing along Diamantina road is in poor condition.

 A very large set of well-constructed, steel yards in excellent condition with crush, branding cradle, pound and loading ramp are accompanied by large, watered cooler yards. The cattle yards are located toward the south eastern corner of the property, adjacent a solar powered bore.

 Historic stocking rate: Over the years “Jakeys” has been used as a bullock paddock running up to 300 adult cattle.

Woody weeds: There is a substantial presence of Chinee Apple, Rubbervine, Bellyache and Lantana along the creeks and Broughton River frontages. Around the run there are isolated weed patches.

 Livestock: NIL included in the sale.

Plant & Machinery:

NIL is included in the sale.

Agent remarks: “Jakeys” is well suited to small scale cattle breeding or fattening and, being close to the Saleyards and weekly sales, it offers the trader a great opportunity to buy and sell with lower freight costs.Being a multi-titled Freehold property, with bitumen highway frontage and Diamantina Road frontage, it does lend itself to subdivision possibilities, subject to Council requirements. There are no buildings or power on property.
