The Campbell family of “Norwood” Blackall have decided the time is right to sell. “Norwood” has been held in the Campbell family for 80 years. The aggregation consists of “Norwood”, “Glencoe” and “Kuringa”, totalling 25,052 hectares Freehold. The aggregation is built on 23 Freehold titles.
The properties, (locally referred to as “Norwood”) are set for auction as one lot in Brisbane on May 19, 2017 in the Ray White Rural Auctions room, Level 26, 111 Eagle Street, Brisbane. The marketing and sale of “Norwood” are being handled by Bruce Douglas of Ray White Rural Queensland and Paton Fitzsimons of Ray White Rural Blackall.
“Norwood” is just 8 km west of Blackall, with access points coming off both the Landsborough Highway and Blackall Isisford bitumen road. The prime location is just one of the many features of “Norwood”. The properties’ artesian water supply is second to none, providing high quality reliable stock and domestic water in all seasons. Two capped artesian bores flow under their own pressure dispersing water through a piped grid into concrete troughs, cups and saucers and poly tanks. The stock water points are located to integrate with the extended stock laneway system and provide for ease of stock management.
The property boasts a unique blend of country. Loam scrub soils have enabled long term development of gidgee to buffel pasture country, while lightly shaded boree fringes the mitchell grass downs. Sandy ridges run along the Barcoo River, AND provide ideal soil for quick responding buffel.
A long history of timber development and management has resulted in a very favourable PMAV in place on the properties, most recently with approximately 8500 acres being double pulled and other treatments applied. Some cutterbar work was completed in 2017, with areas being seeded to forage sorghum.
“Norwood” has a modern set of cattle yards located at the station homestead complex. Included in the steel cattle yards are Breckon air operated cattle crush and gates and a rollover air calf branding cradle, well set up under good cover. There are 24 main paddocks, with almost all paddocks connected by laneway to the centrally placed cattleyards.
Other station improvements include: spacious family homestead, 2 cottages for employees or contractors, workshop, and station plant. For an astute buyer, the large number of freehold titles very close to Blackall and public roads gives scope for future subdivision opportunities.
