Lot 1 Buttigieg Road East Russell QLD 4861
Rural livestock/farming/lifestyle propertyLot 1 Buttigieg Road, East Russell
78 acres of predominantly cleared and improved land at East Russell, 5 kilometres east of the township of Babinda. 70km's south of Cairns and 30km's north of Innisfail. It is mostly cleared with a small amount of rainforest at the top end of the property. The land is mostly flat with a gentle rise up to the rainforest at the eastern end. There is also rainforest over the southern boundary. There is a more elevated area in the south eastern corner which has a hard vehicle track leading up to a small cleared area that could be further cleared for a residence. The view from that area is over the entire property, surrounding area, Russell River, and the two highest mountains in Queensland (Bartle frere and Bellenden Ker). Quite spectacular.
The property gets abundant rainfall and the grass is green all year round. It is fully fenced with some brand new fencing and all in good enough condition to contain the 20 head of cattle that are currently on the block. Internal fencing breaks the property up into 3 main areas and 5 paddocks. Fencing is barbed with a mix of timber and steel posts. Natural water/creeks in all areas. There are steel cattle yards in very good condition with 3 yards, water trough, water tank, head bale/crush, concrete working/weigh area and adjustable loading ramp with truck access from the road. The paddock grasses mostly consist of Humidicoli, Setaria, hetero legume and Paspalum. A 5 acre area was recently improved with Rhodes and Setaria grass with a good strike of both. Some areas have been recently fertilised and the cattle produced on the block have been fantastic with good weight gains for a coastal area. The biggest problem is keeping the grass down.
There is a large machinery shed 16x12metres with 5 bays. 4 bays are earth floor with a 6x3m lockable area within. There is a 5.6mx12m concrete floor workshop area that has a kitchen sink, gas BBQ and gas hot water. A small room attached to that area has a shower and waterless toilet in it. There are 2 water tanks attached to the shed with one plumbed into the shed for the sink and shower. There is 12v lighting and a 12v water pump that is operated by a battery that gets charged by a solar panel on the roof. Tractor, implements and some light machinery available by negotiation.
Incuded in the price is 20 droughtmaster steers that have been on the property since August 2015. Average weight about 400-450kg. They are quality, quiet animals that are mustered with molasses. They are in great condition. With the current cattle prices these would return over $25000 as they are. Don't miss the opportunity to take them through to whatever weight you want and make more money. They are NOT available for separate sale. You could walk straight in and be 'operating' immediately. The property can easily carry 40-50 head year round.
If the cattle and yards etc are not wanted then the price would be adjusted accordingly. Ultimately the property would also make a great place for a scenic, private, tranquil 'lifestyle' or to grow crops. All within easy reach of Cairns that has all amenities including an international airport.
