A combination of both licensed water allocation and natural storage provides an abundance of irrigation opportunities.
Red Lilly Farm is situated approximately 15km west of the town centre of Ayr in North Queensland. It is 85km south of Townsville and on the doorstep to the Great Barrier Reef. The Pioneer Mill located at Brandon is approx. 10km from the farm and is a pick up point for molasses from Performance Feeds. The Burdekin River runs in close proximity also completing the ideal lifestyle requirements.
Red Lilly Farm can be described as generally flat to undulating country with a granite outcrop which provide natural drainage and spectacular views of the Burdekin basin.
There is a good stand of improved pasture throughout the property. It consists of dark and clay soils with areas of sandy loam suitable for vegetable and tree crops, making it ideal for farming and high intensity grazing on improved pasture. In addition to the existing irrigated areas most of the balance area has been cleared with some area having had the soil worked and seeded to pasture.
Red Lilly Farm is a diverse combination of proven cattle fattening and sugar cane growing areas. The aggregation is split into 7 freehold titles of which one title is currently utilised for cane production with the other for grazing. It should be noted that due to the completed land development the current mix could be adjusted to suit the purchaser.
Under existing management and operations, the property runs approx. 350AE but the owners utilise an additional leased area of approx. 1000 acers in combination for their grazing operation. In aggregation the current owners run approx. 240 breeders and take the progeny through to fats (2 years).
Red Lilly Farm is well watered with a mix of natural permanent and seasonal holes, lagoons, creeks and metered irrigation supplies with 1 bore also utilised. This combination ensures reliability and ease of management.
The property is being sold walk in walk out and as a going concern and includes plant, machinery and approx. 270 head of mixed cattle - noting the existing lease on the cane area will also be transferred.
The extensive development already completed on the property ensures versatility between farming and grazing depending on your preference. It is easily managed making it suitable to either a resident or "off farm" owner. This is an opportunity to secure a versatile, and high performing piece of the Burdekin River basin.
