Found just 25mins north of Warwick in the rich and fertile soils of the Goomburra Valley, “Kilbrogan” is a real gem. The 350 acre property just 10 minutes from Allora, sports 200 acres of soft cultivation country with a 20 megalitre irrigation license, fed by 3 bores that feed into one central dam. The remaining 150 acres is breeder country, currently bearing 85 cows and calves.
With the property being taken to market by Peter Douglas of Ray White Rural Queensland, he had this to say. “‘Kilbrogan’ is a good farm. It’s proximity to Brisbane and good soils make it unique in the market. The Mahony family have really enjoyed owning the property and living in the area” said Peter Douglas. “The fact that they have already purchased and the move date is set, means auction day really is sale day”.

Allora State School caters for grades P-10, and has programs in sport and the arts as well. As well as rugby coach Wayne Bennett being born there, Allora’s other claim to fame is that it was home for a time to Pamela Travers who wrote “Mary Poppins”.

This festival started in 2004, and embraces the cold with an amazing array of woolen wares on show. Each year the festival keeps getting bigger and bigger, with entrants submitting their “tree jumpers” or “yarnbombing” to be judged. The festival attracts all sorts of art and performers from around Australia, and the Jazz on offer is top notch.
