“Acreage property doesn’t get any closer to town than Sheep Station Creek … a rural subdivision opportunity or a great paddock if you are looking to trade or breed.”

Location: With bitumen frontage to the Weir Road and only 6 km 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, a school of Distance Education, Dalrymple Trade Training Centre and TAFE.

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 cattlemen, 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.

The area for sale is a five (5) minute drive to the Charters Towers Weir where there is access to recreational boating and fishing or the picnic area overlooking the Weir.

Area & Tenure:

The property is held in FIVE (5) Freehold titles …

TOTAL: 679.89ha (1679.33 acres)

Subdivision opportunity:

Sheep Station Creek has approx 3km frontage to the bitumen Weir Road and is in five (5) Freehold titles. Interested parties should contact the Charters Towers Regional Council for direction on boundary realignment and rural subdivision possibilities.

Country:

The property comprises a mix of alluvial creek frontage soils in the east, running to undulation goldfields soils and decomposed granite soils leading to a small hill to the north of the property.

Away from Sheep Station and Dairy Creeks the soils are mostly red and gravelly soils dominated by Bloodwood, Box and Ironbark … On the majority of the landscape there is a good smattering of Red Natal, Black Spear, Urachloa and Stylos. The more fertile creek frontage is timbered with Black Teatree and Paperbark and pastured with Urochloa, Indian Couch, Stylos and various native grasses.

Estimated sustainable carrying capacity is approx 100 mixed cattle depending on season.

Woody weeds are prevalent along the creek frontages and include Chinee Apple, Rubbervine, Bellyache and isolated Lantana. Much of the northern area of the property has had very little grazing pressure and is almost without woody weeds.

A seasonal waterfall exists to the south west of the cattle yards and provides an oasis in the middle of a grazing paddock to explore and to cool off.

There are two hills in the paddock, to the north that provide views, above the tree line, up-river of the Weir and looking back towards Charters Towers.

Infrastructure & Fencing:

House:

The present owners built, but never occupied, a small timber and steel framed one-bedroom house in 2017. The house is located to the north of Dairy Creek and approximately 500m from the Weir Road.

Constructed of steel and timber frame with Hardiplank walls, compressed fibro floors and Trimdeck roofing the house has been fully tiled and partially painted internally. The bathroom is spacious and well-constructed. From each side, running along the length of the house is timber framed roof originally designed for verandas/outdoor living or for further bedrooms, internal living areas, kitchen etc. The structure is in as-new condition.

Adjacent the House is a new 5000-gallon Poly water tank for catching rainwater for the house.  This tank is also plumbed to feed water down into tank at the Well for livestock, if need be.

Fencing:

The property has some old fencing not in stockproof condition. There is a small holding paddock at the cattle yards.

Cattle yards:

A set of portable panel steel yards in fair condition is located near Dairy Creek.

Water:

Water sources are limited to an old, but reliable, well near Dairy Creek, and seasonal water in the various creeks.   A solar pump exists at the well near Dairy Creek which pumps into a 5000 Gallon tank that feeds into troughs to water livestock.

The are no man-made waters on the remainder of the property.

Livestock & carrying capacity:

Nil included in the sale. Currently the property runs a herd of approx 60 mixed cattle but could likely sustain, with water and fencing development, approx 100 mixed cattle depending on season.

MINING Exploration Permit (EPM)

There exists an EPM (No. 26909) over parts of the property (1/MPH 21312, 1/MPH 13879 & 1/MPH 13845). The Mining company concerned is Access Australia Mining Pty Ltd.Contact agent.
