AAP reported that agent Colliers International said the auction had been rescheduled for March 23. No further details were available.
Mamelon Station at Marlborough, 135 kilometres north-west of Rockhampton, was the first of Mr Palmer’s property assets put up for sale after administrators took control of his Queensland Nickel refinery in January.
Local, interstate and international potential buyers had registered interest in the property, according to agents.

Before the scheduled auction, Colliers’ Ben Forrest said the property had attracted attention from investors, funds and graziers, as well as private Chinese interests.
“There has been some international interest and some good interstate interest,” Mr Forrest told AAP.
“(But) a big portion of them (potential bidders) are local graziers.”
Mr Palmer’s QNI Metals bought the 6258-hectare property for around $8 million in 2010.
