This gorgeous and diverse 260 acre property has become available in the Fly Creek area, ideal for the person dreaming of being self-sufficient or for the nature enthusiast. There is plenty of land to explore, farm or develop. Boasting a permanent billabong on the southern side of the property and a wet-season paperbark swamp, Ella Creek meanders through the centre of the property during the wet season attracting an abundance of wildlife year round. The property is fully fenced, including internal fencing dividing the home yard and 4 paddocks. 2x culverts have been installed to enable all year access to the western side of the block.
This property is perfect for exploring while bush walking, prospecting, horse-riding, motorbike riding, bird-watching or simply enjoying working on the land. There are so many beautiful treasures to see and find on this property including iconic termite mounds, massive paperbark trees, water lilies, red-claw, small fish and turtles in the creek and billabong to mention a few. The quietness you will experience on this property is rejuvenating and the perfect way to recharge after a busy day at work. Far enough out of the city and suburbia to escape the hustle bustle and crime, but close enough to all of the essential services. It's 22min to Coolalinga shopping centres, 30 minutes to Palmerston City, 15min to Berry Springs and a great base to explore many special treasures of the Top End.
The home yard has modest yet comfortable accommodation including a 12x3m demountable sheltered by a large 24mx12m veranda fully enclosed with shade-cloth to keep mosquitoes out. The demountable and veranda are cyclone coded. The demountable has 1.5 bedrooms, lounge/study and a bathroom. There is an additional outdoor bathroom on the veranda as well as a large modern kitchen. The kitchen overlooks a dining area and an 8mx4m salt-chlorinated pool making it the perfect place for entertaining or relaxing and soaking in the serenity. A variety of tropical fruit trees/plants are planted around the 5 acre house yard. Large established garden beds contain a variety of ornamental and edible plants, all with automated reticulation. A large caravan (renovated internally) and a 12mx3m shipping container are also on-site and included in the sale of the property if desired. There are some beautiful high and dry spots with tall timbers along the creek to build your dream home as you develop the land.
There is a 4x bay carport/farm machinery/hay shelter 16mx8m. Animal shelters/paddocks and water troughs within the home yard currently house horses, sheep, chooks and dogs. A boundary collar system is in place for dogs. The remaining 255acres is being used for cattle. A shelter for cattle lick blocks and back rub are adjacent to the house yard so all animals held on this property are conveniently accessible from the home site which allows you to relax, observe and enjoy your animals from the home veranda. Large cattle yards and a crush are conveniently situated on the property to make cattle management easy. The larger part of the property has been divided into 4 paddocks. These paddocks have been planted with some improved pasture within the bush including 40 acres Mekong, 7 acres Humidicola and 5 acres Jarra. The remaining 200 acre paddock is untouched bush land. All paddocks are linked to the laneway that leads to the cattle yards and cattle shelter adjacent to the home yard. A 1.5l/s bore services the home, animal troughs and cattle yards with crystal clear water all year round.
