Services: Known as the ‘Education Centre for North Qld’, Charters Towers is a town of approximately 10,000 people with a choice of three private boarding schools, State High School and several primary schools. Additionally the amenities such as hospital, shopping centres, entertainment & sporting facilities and retirement homes etc provide employment and lifestyle to the growing population. Gold Mining contributes significantly to the prosperity of, and employment opportunities in Charters Towers. The cattle industry is well catered for in the Charters Towers district having Saleyards, Rail & Road transport and close access to meatworks and live export marketing options. Area: 11,159.64ha (27564.3ac) Title:Perpetual Lease … Lot 18 on Plan DP14, GHPL 11/742 – 73ha Perpetual Lease … Lot 1 on Plan DP6, GHPL 11/741- 51ha Freehold … Lot 1 on Plan MPH 21260 – 74ha Country: The land is predominantly flat to undulating grey clay, sandy clay and alluvial soils along creek frontages with frequent open Box flats. The predominant landscape is one of Silverleaf Ironbark, Wattle and Tea Tree with larger sections of Box flats. Associated with the otherwise flat terrain are infrequent small narrow ridges containing Yellow Jack, Quinine and Bloodwood, and creek frontages with Pandanus, large Gum and Paperbark. Pastures comprising White Spear, Black spear, Kerosene Grass, Indian Couch, Seca Stylo and Wynn Cassia and other various edible native grasses. Worthy of mention is the very significant presence of Wynn Cassia, an introduced pasture legume. A small section of basalt soils is located adjacent Hann Ck on the NW corner of the property. The property enjoys double frontage to Hann, Dillon, Snake, Swamp and Jewfish Creeks. Carrying capacity: The vendor’s estimate of year round carrying capacity is approx 1500 breeders + replacement heifers. The property is best suited as a breeding operation to supply 150-200kg weaners to the market or to a growing/fattening property.The vendors programme is to sell weaners which are well sought after by numerous local and southern grass fatteners. These cattle make ideal Live Export steers and bullocks. Improvements: Water Traditionally the property was watered by second-rate bores, a spear, some small dams and seasonal creeks however over the past ten years the vendor has invested considerably to obtain a more reliable, good quality stock water supply. In 2016 the property is now very well watered by three good bores, a series of permanent and semi-permanent dams, and a spear located in Hann Ck. House Bore – submersible pump, connected to rural power and pumping @ 1000gals/hr, provides for stock water only to yards, house garden and nearby paddocks via several poly tanks and troughs. White Springs Bore – submersible pump powered by a portable genset, pumps 1500gals/hr, supplies yards, tanks and troughs in nearby paddocks. Snake Creek Bore – submersible pump powered by a portable genset, pumps 1000gals/hr to nearby tanks and troughs in nearby paddocks. All bores – further extension of the polypipe network is possible should extra water distribution be required. Year-round carrying capacity is underpinned by the reliable bore water supply. Hann Ck spear – a permanent spear located in Hann Ck is connected to a twin-impellor Davey Firefighter pump once surface water dries up. The water is pumped to an elevate tank location then gravitated to nearby troughs. Sheds Hay shed – approx 10m x 6m Machinery shed 1 – 4 bay, approx 20m x 6m Machinery shed 2 – 4 bay, approx 15m x 4m Cattle Yards, Fencing & paddocks … Tandanus is fenced into 7 main paddocks and several holding paddocks, mainly 3-barb construction and in very good condition having been built in recent years. All strainer posts, assemblies and gates are steel and laneways are more often a 4-barb construction. To facilitate ease of mustering reduced labour and reduced mustering costs waters are equipped with squares and spear traps connected to laneways and the 3-sets of yards. Helicopter mustering is rarely used accept on occasion during the wet season when cattle are scattered on natural waters. Now that Tandanus dry season water livestock supply comes exclusively from fenced dam squares, bores , tanks and troughs within holding paddocks … cattle control is almost absolute. Tandanus is well supplied with 3-sets of cattle yards, each with a comfortable 500head capacity. All yards are constructed of steel portable panels and include crush, head bail, branding facilities and loading ramp. Located at the House, White Springs and Top Paddock the yards are well distributed and serviced by holding paddocks, spear traps and good water supplies. HomesteadThe house is a modest 3-bedroom dwelling with open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room areas and cement floor. Adjacent the kitchen is a newly constructed covered patio area with new toilet, bathroom and laundry attached. A skillion roof provides a carport adjacent the house entrance. Livestock: Included in the sale is a good quality grey Brahman herd … WIWO. Due to dry season in 2015 the cattle have not been thoroughly mustered and counted in recent times. A settlement muster will determine exact numbers.
