Mountain Creek Wilderness Retreat, located nearly 2.5 hours North West of Brisbane and only one hour from the Sunshine Coasts beaches is being sold due to health reasons. Although the 770 acre property is less than half an hour’s drive from the Gympie and all services it feels a million miles away.
Michael and Kate Read have both grown up on large properties in the Brisbane Valley and spent 10 years looking for the ideal property to build a Wilderness Retreat for families to enjoy and ‘Mountain Creek’ is the one! The property is comprised of rich volcanic scrub soils, open grassed areas and beautiful stands of timber. Some of the species of timber found on the property are Iron Bark, Stringy Bark, Blue Gum, Box and Cedar. Flowing through the centre of the property is a beautiful spring fed creek. Just two of the many features of this property are the stunning views that can be seen throughout and an approximate 60 acre remnant rainforest. Another unique feature is a prehistoric volcanic plug that intersects the boundary.
“Mountain Creek” has been aerial seed to improved pastures and combined with the rich soils provides the property with exceptional carrying capacity for livestock. The property is offered for sale Walk-in Walk-out and comes completely stocked with exotic animals. Species include Red Deer, Rusa Deer, Fallow Deer, Camels, Goats, Grey and White Buffalo, cattle and a horse. Mountain Creek receives visits from photographers, families and nature lovers who love seeing both the exotic and native animals in a natural environment.
Accommodation is provided in a comfortable 4 bedroom 2 bathroom brick home that is situated high on a ridge and offers exceptional views towards Noosa in the East. The two bedroom cabin can sleep 8 people and has a large deck overlooking the tranquil creek.
The hard work has been done and Michael and Kate are hoping to find someone that will continue on with their dream or just enjoy this special property for themselves. In their words “the lifestyle/income opportunities are only limited by your imagination”. They believe that some possible uses for this stunning property include farm stay, photography courses and tours, camping, bush walking, four wheel driving, mountain biking, rock climbing, corporate retreats and school groups to name just a few. Alternately this is the ideal property for someone wanting complete privacy to share only with family and friends.
“Mountain Creek” was offered to the market by Ray White Rural Brisbane and was sold prior to Auction on the 25th of July 2014. Call Jez McNamara on 0427 270 280 for more information.
