Property Type and Size
This timbered 108 acres (42.8ha) is ready for development or kept in its natural state as a weekend getaway.

There are already several tonnes of split and felled timber ready for sale including red gum, iron bark and box. Equipment for this enterprise can be included in the sale at a negotiated price including a tractor with bucket and slasher and relevant tools.
The property also lends itself as an excellent weekend getaway, a popular use for land in this area. The large shed could be converted to stables, internal roads are perfect for trail bikes or 4 wheel driving. Alternatively the land would work well as a cattle property, the abundant water definitely a plus for stock.
The 2 bed timber cabin is set on a cement slab with fireplace, large lounge and kitchen. There is a phone line connected to the cabin and the potential for solar power to be fitted.
