59 Mundalena Road Lucindale SA 5272
Rare find in Great Location59 Mundalena Road, Lucindale
Located 40km West of Naracoorte and 8kms South West of Lucindale on the Konetta Road the property’s front title has bitumen road frontage, with the access to the homestead down Mundalena Road which is gravel.
It is ideally situated centrally in the South East of South Australia close to the township of Lucindale which is a small close rural community, Naracoorte is the closest township with all the large town amenities including a Hospital, shopping centre and many other services.
A rare find this close to Lucindale is this 295-acre lifestyle property. The undulating nature of the allotment allows for 360 degree views of the surrounding Lucindale plains.
The property held for 52yrs in a very tightly held district boasting excellent flats and arguably the best high ground in the district in a 600mm rainfall area with regular & generally recognised good & assured winter wet season.
The property has many features including:
- 3-bedroom Stone Home
- Ample Shedding
- Covered Orchard
- Open water reserve
- Excellent grazing flats
- And much more.
The house garden has been let-go lately & the house itself though comfortable & practical, could do with a bit of help. House is a 3 BR / 1 Bathroom/ 2 Toilets. Double garage undercover parking.
The house is well situated in the middle of the 295ac with a pleasant outlook, along a well-made road with seclusion. Even locals are not aware of the house.
A good variety of birds are obvious & find refuge here with usually 6 var. of ducks breeding on the swamp & drainage reserve & others about the place, and the first sighting, this year of a spotted nightjar in the pine harvest residue.
This is an ideal hideaway where the present owners have lived & enjoyed the lifestyle presented with a lot of self-sufficiency, aware that it could be a more commercially run.
The Wet land has always been there as early maps show the area as a swamp before the drains went in in 1915 on the southern boundary.
There are 7 stranded coast-lines in the 100km between Naracoorte & the coast & as the land gets wet between those ridges, the water flowed west & then north to escape at Salt Creek in the Coorong. Drains intercepted those flows so swamps were drained & natural diversity suffered.
This reserve displays what was here before & is now a real treasure.

Outside the fruit cage is a collection of fig trees producing more & more each year which could be commercialised, as well as boysenberry & youngberry.
Plant Breeding rights.
But hold-on, there is more!
A property of this size allows one to do other things by not only playing around with fruit trees and studying nature & science up close & personal, but to also diversify into innovative & ‘out-of-left-field’ interests, like adapting through selection, an ancient medicinal plant & to be granted a Plant Breeders Right. It is now ready for serious commercialisation.
