"Bonnie Doon" - One of the Gold Coasts Hinterlands best-known farms to be Sold
"Bonnie Doon" is simply one of the best land holdings available near the Gold Coast today. This is a fertile, rich dairy country, rising from the permanent flow of the Nerang River flats through Kikuyu country that is as soft as butter through to stunning ancient rainforest.
Nestled in the Numinbah Valley the rectangular shape block is split by the Nerang-Murwillumbah road with Lamington National Park on one side and Springbrook National Park on the other.
Both sides of the road have spectacular views looking up and down the valley and through to Mount Warning and the border ranges along with Shipstern and Egg Rock.
The majority of the property is cleared improved pastures of Kikuyu, Rhodes and clovers. The soils in the elevated areas are rich red and volcanic. The creek flats are darker alluvial soils.
At the western edge, the property has around 40 hectares of stunning virgin rainforest country that bounds Lamington National Park. Along with tall strangler figs and pines are an abundance of unique timbers to the region.
At 172 hectares this is one of the largest productive holdings near the Gold Coast. The beaches are only a short drive and school bus to the Gold Coast Private and Public schools at the gate. Numinbah also has a primary school which is within walking distance.
"Bonnie Doon" has extensive double frontage to Nerang River, along with spring fed dams and a 5000-gallon header tank which feeds back to round water troughs throughout the property. Large rock water holes in the river have been enjoyed over the years by kids and adults alike.
Owned by the Yaun family for over 100 years, the property was used as a dairy farm until 2007. Instead of dairy cows, Angus and Charolais cows now feed on the improved pastures. It has been an emotional decision to sell "Bonnie Doon" by the family. "We have loved living here but at some point, with multiple beneficiaries, we needed to sell the property and convert to cash so we can all move along with our lives."
