Total Area: 219,674 Ha or approximately 542,595 acres

Local Government: Winton Shire Council

Rates: $7923.14 per half yearly

Country:

The country on Boolbie and Archervale is very diverse with a total area of approximately 542,500 acres. There is approximately 243,000 acres of undulating pebbly Gidgee timbered country running back into areas of light Mulga timber. This type of country is very sweet but light carrying and is grassed mainly with native summer grasses, summer and winter herbages when in season with small areas of Mitchell and Flinders grass, pig weed, Gidgee burr and salines.

There is approximately 97,000 acres of creek channel systems with clay pan fringes mostly running into the three main creeks – Cadell, Boolbie and Glen Urquhart Creek systems. This country is timbered with Coolibah and Gidgee along the channels and Gidgee trees out along the fringes. The channels are mostly grassed with Buffel, other native grasses as well as pig weed, Gidgee burr and salines on the creek flats.

There is approximately 12,000 acres of black/grey soil open Mitchell grass downs country that is lightly timbered with Whitewood and Vinetree as well as prickly acacia around the dams and a few of the creeks.

There is approximately 192,000 acres of hard range type country that is mainly timbered with many different species of eucalypt trees as well as Bendee and Lancewood trees. This country has mostly native grasses and spinifex. Buffel grass has been slowly spreading over the last five or six years along some of these softer hills choking out the Spinifex.

Waters:

Archervale is watered by 9 dams and short term water in the creek systems following good rainfalls. Some of these dams are fenced off and equipped while others are open to full livestock access.

Boolbie is watered by 14 dams and the Boolbie bore. Many of these dams are fenced off with some equipped with solar pumps and others equipped with windmills pumping into tanks or turkey nests with troughs. The Boolbie bore was drilled in 1915 to a depth of 960 metres.  It is now equipped with a solar submersible pump that pumps water approximately 5 km to a large 44,000 gallon Rhino steel fabricated tank and trough. The Banning’s bore was drilled in 1986 to a depth of 898 meters is presently not being used.

Yards & Fencing:

There are 2 main sets of cattle yards – one at the Boolbie homestead and the other is the Glen Urquhart yards in the north-west corner of the property. There are two other smaller yards at Rum Creek on Archervale and Salt Tank on Boolbie.

The Boolbie yards are good solid permanent yards made of steel post and rails and steel post with cable. The working area including vet crush and branding cradle are under cover. Water troughs are installed in the yards. There are several water cooler yards and a couple of holding paddocks beside the yards. There is also a horse yard and saddle shed at the Boolbie yards.

The main working area at the Glen Urquhart yards are mostly portable steel panels complete with vet crush, branding cradle and water troughs. The larger holding yards are mostly wooden post and K-wire netting. There is a large holding paddock and a couple of smaller holding squares running off the yards. Trucking access to the Glen Urquhart yards is through Kynuna which is approximately 46 km away.

The yards at Rum Creek and Salt Creek are mostly steel panels with loading ramp and holding squares running off the yards. Panels can be shifted in from other yards if required to enlarge these existing yards. Most of the dams on the aggregation have mustering squares where you can hold cattle when mustering.

Not all of the boundary fencing is in place as the natural landscape ranges act as fences. There is a lot of ‘give and take’ fencing as once again the landscape has dictated where the fence can be erected. Boolbie has only three main paddocks and Archervale is one main paddock with a couple of holding paddocks. The internal fencing is mostly in good stock proof condition.

Homestead & Quarters:

There is a comfortable 4 bedroom homestead that is set in a very well established garden. There is also men’s quarters and a governess quarters all kept in a well maintained condition. Both these buildings are fully self-contained and have gas stove and gas fridge.

All houses are air-conditioned with the main house having satellite TV and satellite internet with Wi-Fi.  The wi-fi reaches both quarters and the TV can be connected to the quarters if required.

The homestead on Archervale is set on steel stumps but was never completed and is un-livable. The old Archervale homestead is also in disrepair.

Building Improvements:

At the Boolbie homestead there is a large steel frame 3 bay machinery shed that is fully enclosed on three sides as well as a power generator shed, fuel shed and meat house that are all in very good condition.

There is a 3 bay steel frame shed with steel frame skillion that has been erected over the working area of an old woolshed on Archervale.

Carrying Capacity:

The estimated carrying capacity of Boolbie & Archervale in an average season would be 3,000 breeders, keeping progeny to weaning age or longer if the season allows it.

 Agents Remarks:

Boolbie & Archervale has a very good mix of grazing country, ranging from very good quality open Mitchell grass downs country and sweet pebbly Gidgee timbered quick responding red soil country that is interspersed with a large number of Buffel grassed creek channels and large areas of Gidgee timbered ridges and hard stoney Eucalypt ranges that are mostly grassed with native summer grasses and Spinifex.

There was up to 575 mm of rain that fell across most of Boolbie and Archervale in early February. The season will be excellent especially if there is follow up rainfall within the next 4 to 5 weeks.

This aggregation could be used as either a relatively safe breeder block due to the fact that there are a lot of edible shrubs or a sweet backgrounding / fattening block following the very good summer rainfall.

A great opportunity to purchase a dual purpose breeding / fattening property with plenty of scale.

Asking $10M bare
