Macadamia & Mango Orchard + House
Rarely is a property, in Amamoor, such as this, offered for sale. The acreage has 850 macadamia and 180 mango trees that are well established. Up to several years ago, the orchard was commercial but since then, the vendors have found employment off of the farm.
The farmstead is located 4 km from the townships of Dagun and Amamoor, with Gympie only 20 km away. The famous steam train, the Mary Valley Rattler, brings tourists to both Dagun and Amamoor (http://www.maryvalleyrattler.com.au) every day of the week, except Mondays.
Dagun’s weekly Saturday Fresh Food Grower’s Market is always well patronized and is a great outlet for local produce. Dagun also hosts regular get-togethers and music nights at the Choo Choo Bar.
The house sits on a relatively flat area in front of the macadamia and mango orchard. The Federation-style home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. To the side of the house is a separate office or study. The rooms are typical of the era, with high ceilings. The bedrooms lead off from the lounge/family room.
The home has split-system reverse-cycle air conditioning, solar hot water and solar panels. The kitchen area is currently being renovated. Once complete, there will be room for a breakfast table.
House water is pumped into a 45,000 L concrete tank from the high quality water bore at the front of the property, by the road. It is a very comfortable family home that, with a coat of paint and one’s own individual makeover, would be a lovely place to raise a family.
An added bonus is the relatively new 40,000 L fibreglass above-ground swimming pool with deck and BBQ entertainment area which provides many hours of recreation.
The macadamia and mango orchard sits on a sloping block with an ideal aspect for the orchard. The contour lines on the map of the block show a rise of 100 m from the front of the block to the back. Approximately 75% of the land surface is planted, with the macadamias generally in a North/South direction. The mango’s run in an East/West direction. (Refer to the contour, Google aerial map)
Equipment that comes with the property includes: an old but excellent Fiat crawler tractor, with a reconditioned motor, plus implements (flail mower, spreader and sprayer); and, specialized macadamia farming equipment.
The orchard needs many man-hours to bring it back as a commercial proposition. The price on the property takes this in to account.
For the family who wants to build a future in this industry should not hesitate to call me to arrange a viewing. Alan Broder, 040 955 3877
