  • Description


    Hi I live about 900 mtrs above Sea level at the top of the great dividing Range with my cat Jupsie, the property was once a flower farm approximately 200 acres however due to my extended bouts away from the property for nearly the last 10 years things need a bit of a clean-up.
    My children George and Emily 22 and 25 respectively come and stay often ,they miss the open fire places and just the beautiful Scenery.
    My Partner visits regularly also.
    The house looks hundreds of kilometres in a North and Easterly direction down into the valley of the lakes where there are numerous activities.
    The Northern boundary has approximately 14,400 acres or 5,500 ha with numerous walking tracks and streams all in a rainforest.
    The property has Wild Deer, a huge array of bird life , Kangaroos , wallabies and Koalas ,we offer a true Australian experience.
    There are 2 swimming pools and a spa.

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation is within the Western wing of the house ,fully self-contained with 2 double bedrooms bathroom, office , dining room and lounge all of which has views down into the valley. This part of the house would be the accommodation solely for your use)
    I personally do not live in the house but in another section of the property.
    We would share the kitchen only as much of the house is unused.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The property is located just 1 hr and 20 mins from Brisbane and approximately 40 Mins Toowoomba where there are busses to Brisbane ,Gold Coast and the Sunshine coast.
    There are restaurants 5 minutes away by car at Sketches Mountain resort and 10-15 minutes away in the small village of Hampton and Crows Nest.
    The main use of the property now is for the sale of the Natural Spring Water that occurs on the property which is taken in very large tankers to the major bottling plants in South East Queensland.

    The vege garden is also needing some TLC as well as numerous other things around the house on the property. I have done the major clean up around the gardens using machinery as well as mulching all the gardens it just need maintence now all the hard work is done
