'Booerie Creek Farm' - Numinbah Valley
Sold under the hammer! 105 enquiries 38 inspections
The Gold Coast Shire is widely known for many things - high rise apartments, sensational surf beaches, Indy, exciting attractions and nightlife - but not normally for lush quality rural country. 'Booerie Creek Farm', a 120 virtually all useable acres of unsurpassed cattle country in Numinbah Valley and just 25 minutes to famous Broadbeach and Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Clubs, is without doubt one exception. Obviously the Brisbane CBD is not far away being only 97km or just an hour away.
Numinbah Valley is synonymous with the Gold Coast's hinterland's dairy and logging industries for years gone by when explorers blazed through this rich volcanic region.
'Booerie Creek Farm' is set to the backdrop of the cliffs and folds of the rugged World Heritage Listed Lamington National Park. In fact the park is only 500 metres from the property and so offers striking views in every direction. The lush kikuyu pastures of the property roll to the extensive frontage and flats of the Nerang River.
Renowned home of the Booerie Creek Australian Stock Horse Stud the property currently is home to some 60 Brangus breeders and progeny and 23 of the famed horses.
This is heavy carrying country still reaping the rewards of under stocking and specifically designed 'cell-like' grazing. In addition the country has greatly benefited by the rich minerals being washed down from the hills over many thousands of years.
Along with the crystal clean water from the Nerang River, water is supplied from numerous large spring fed dams: the good regular rainfall is just a bonus. The 40 acres of rich alluvial river flats are fully irrigated. Water is a real feature here.
The original Queenslander home sits prominently taking in vistas almost all would envy. A second workers dwelling and various machinery and hay sheds are also on site.
All fencing is as new 4 and 5 barb, and well positioned new cattle yards will make your livestock management just that little easier.
This is outstanding country, very well located and your inspection will not disappoint. Time commitments have forced the owners hand in allowing the property to the market. Friends will flock when you call 'Booerie Creek Farm' your own, but only after they have returned from a quick cooling surf.
