Waihaorunga has an excellent mix of country and would be considered some of the better quality grazing country in the district. The majority of the soil is dark with plenty of depth and there is a nice blend of pebbly downs that is lightly shaded. The grass and herbages on the pebbly downs would respond quickly from good rainfall and the grass on the heavy chocolate soil would stay green for a long time after good rainfall. Quality country that could be used for breeding or fattening both cattle or sheep.

There has been a good start to the summer season over a large area of Waihaorunga and the property is lightly stocked giving immediate access for livestock to several paddocks. The vendor has done a great job keeping Waihaorunga almost 100% free of prickly acacia. Rarely do you get the opportunity to purchase quality country with good access, no re-growth timber issues and little to no impact from large numbers of kangaroos.

Asking $115 / acre. Waihaorunga can be split and sold in three different land parcels.

Location:

The Waihaorunga homestead is located approximately 109 km south west of Hughenden and approximately 119 km north east of Winton, with only 4 km of unsealed road to the bitumen Kennedy Developmental Road. This would give great access to the processor and live export market to the north or the processor, feedlot or store markets to the south.

Facilities/Services:

Waihaorunga is connected to rural power and telephone with access to NBN on application for the internet.

Winton and Hughenden offer primary and secondary schooling, hospital and medical facilities, usual rural businesses and personal shopping. There are cattle saleyards and rail trucking facilities in Winton and cattle yards in Hughenden. Both centres have an airport with flights connecting to Townsville and Brisbane. Hughenden has a daily bus service to and from Townsville. Winton has a daily bus service to and from Brisbane.  Waihaorunga is 480km from Townsville.

Waihaorunga has NORTH BEEF membership to the anticipated meatworks in Hughenden.

Area & Tenure:

17,945.38 Ha or 44,325.09 acres plus approximately 3,025 acres stock route.

L4 CM74: GHPL 23/16263A (6,147.580 Ha) Parish: Elvira

L14 MK18: GHPL 23/166606 (1,786.687 Ha) Parish: Vellum

LA AP13621: (1,225 Ha) Stock Route

Local Authority: Flinders Shire council

Rainfall:

Long term district average for Corfield and Stamford district is approximately 410 mm or 16.4 inches.

Country:

Waihaorunga has an excellent mix of country with attractive open pebbly undulating downs, lightly   timbered with Whitewood, Vinetree, Corkwood and Coolibah along the creek systems. There is little to no prickly acacia. Vendor is diligent in spot spraying any prickly acacia when found. There are areas of the native mimosa bush which has a short life span and comes and goes over a 5 to 7 year period. The soil types range from grey and chocolate self-mulching cracking clay pebbly downs to lighter coloured red clay pebbly downs country. The grasses are predominately Mitchell and Flinders grass with a spread of Buffel grass along the Coolibah creek systems. When in season, the summer and winter herbages are wonderful fattening feed to supplement the bulk of the Mitchell and Flinders grass. Excellent weight gains from both sheep and cattle can be attributed to the very good quality of the country, grass and herbages.

Waters:

Waihaorunga is well watered with 9 dams, ranging in size from 10,000 to 30,000 cubic metres as well as the house bore. The bore (Licence # 03166J) was drilled in 1917 to a depth of 685 metres. Rural power is connected to the bore and there is a Grundfos electric submersible, pumping 1500 gals per hour from 280ft through 2” galvanised pipe. This water is then pumped from the turkey nest at the bore through steel and poly pipe for approximately 10 km to the Stoney Point Yards; servicing 3 tanks, 8 troughs and a turkey nest. Water is also pumped through the second pipeline for approximately 8 km to Woodside Paddock; servicing 2 tanks, 5 troughs and a turkey nest. Two dams are fenced off and one is equipped with solar pump, turkey nest and 2 troughs.  There is a pipeline for the Elvira Bore to a 5,000 gallon tank and 2 troughs, one in Stoney Paddock and one in Elvira Paddock. There is no water agreement for this water supply.

Fencing:

Waihaorunga is fenced into 8 main paddocks and 3 holding paddocks. Most of the internal fences are in stock proof condition with a couple of sections in need of  replacement in the near future. The majority of the boundary is in good stock proof  condition and well maintained with a recently erected 3 barb fence along 10.5km of the 14km frontage to the Kennedy Developmental Highway.

 Yards:

There are 2 sets of cattle yards. The Stoney Point yards are permanent steel with mesh as well as portable steel panels. The house yards are also a mixture of permanent steel post with mesh and steel portable panels. Both yards have a galvanised steel ‘Stock-Quip’ loading ramp as well as stock watering facilities, crush and calf branding cradle and each would be able to work 500 head comfortably.

There are old steel sheep yards in need of repair that have not been used for  approximately 13 years. Waihaorunga would require additional fencing before you could consider it to be a dual sheep/cattle property.

Improvements:

The main homestead has 4 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen / dining room, enclosed verandah with several other small rooms. There is a cemented patio on the side of the house and another small building with laundry and old cold-room. There is an old cottage that is in need of repair.

There is a large steel frame, 3 bay, 20 x 15 metre machinery shed with earth floor, power and water that has one end enclosed on three sides. There are 3 other old sheds that includes a hay shed, storage shed and a 5 bay vehicles / workshop that is also connected to the power. There is an old woolshed that could be used as storage shed.

Carrying Capacity:

The estimated carrying capacity of Waihaorunga in an average season would be 2,300 AE (400kg dry beast) or sheep equivalent.

Livestock, Plant & Equipment:

There is no livestock, plant and equipment included in the sale.
