Best Hobby Farm on the Coast...
This hobby farm is fully established and has been developed with great care and consideration over the years by the current owners. If you are looking for a great weekender/hobby farm where you can escape the urban life and retreat to a beautiful totally private rural environment then this definitely is a farm you should inspect.
The farm has an Area of 12.17 Ha or 30 acres. Approximately 20 acres are cleared.
There two entrances – one off Hamilton Road and the other off Christensen’s Road. Both entrances have a fully sealed asphalt driveway that meanders through beautiful natural bushland leading to the main farm area.
There are three paddocks – the main dam paddock which is approximately 12 acres in area and has an 8-meter-deep dam with a pump that pumps water a 50,000-litre holding tank which in turn is piped around the farm for irrigation and the watering of livestock. The small paddock adjacent to the dam paddock has an area of approximately 3 acres plus there is the orchard paddock located on the other side of the cattle yards. All paddocks have excellent coastal pastures and as proof to this claim, one only has to look at the excellent condition the resident cattle are in.
The cattle yard is located on the ridge between the paddocks allowing for easy cattle management. The yard consists of a small holding pen that leads to a crush and loading ramp.
The citrus orchard is fully established and each tree is watered by an automatic reticulation system ensuring that the trees are laden with fruit this time of year. There are valencia and washington oranges, ruby red grapefruit, emperor mandarins and meyer lemons. Other fruits located on the farm are passionfruit, macadamia, avocado, coffee, five-star fruit, mulberry, pawpaw and bananas.
Excellent boundary and internal fencing are present throughout the property.
The 13.5m x 14m main shed has an attached carport and a front and rear verandah. The shed has one 3.6m high clearance roller door and two drive-through 3m roller doors. Excellent workshop and storage areas are available in the shed. Water is obtained from two 25,000 litre rainwater tanks.
The 4.7m x 20.5m drive-through machinery shed has a crusher dust floor with power and water connected. The high clearance allows the storage of all farm machinery.
The accommodation on the farm consists of two-bedrooms plus a retreat, one bathroom and an extra toilet, set over two levels. There is a comfortable lounge area which overlooks the farm and well-equipped kitchen.

One of the great features of the farm is its central location to the coast’s towns and commercial areas. No need for a lengthy drive to pick up your Friday night pizza. Palmwoods and Nambour are 11-minute drive or 8 km in either direction while Maroochydore CBD is only 22 km or a 30-minute drive away.
