There is access to the Luckham/Belmont block including the second set of cattle yards via the Winton to Belmont road. It is approximately 75km from the yards to Winton with 45km unsealed road. Luckham is in an ideal position to capitalise on the live export market to the north and the meatworks, feedlots and the store markets to the south.

Facilities/Services:   Rural power, telephone, satellite TV, twice weekly mail service from Winton, live weight weighing at the Winton saleyards and rail trucking facilities. There are shopping, educational, government agency and medical facilities in Winton. Mobile phone coverage is available over most of Luckham especially with a car mobile aerial.

Area and Tenure:

Luckham House Block: 10,443.7 ha (25,795 acres) Grazing Homestead Perpetual Lease in the Winton Shire

Lot 3 OD18 GHPL 45/3771 – County of Oondooroo, Parish of Nesbitt

Luckham/Belmont Block:  8,141.9 ha (20,110 acres) of Grazing Homestead Perpetual Lease in the Winton Shire

Lot 7 G24932 GHPL 45/3686 – County of Oondooroo, Parish of Gates

Total Area: 18,585.59 ha or approximately 45,906 acres

Rates: $8,730.17 per half year

Rent:   $3532.51 quarterly

Country: Predominately gentle undulating heavy carrying Mitchell and Flinders grass downs country with the Nesbitt, Bauhinia, Triton & Elizabeth creek systems running through the property.  There is a very good scattering of buffel grass along the creek systems and out on the tighter ridges. At present there is a very good body of summer herbages and forbs such as pig weed, button grass, cow vine and indigo growing along side the Mitchell and Flinders grass. Recent rainfall of over 250 mm and being lightly stocked gives Luckham a reasonable body of very high quality pasture. The open downs country is lightly shaded with Whitewood and Vinetree with Coolibah and Bauhinia trees along the creek systems. There is very little to no Prickly Acacia. Vendors diligently spot spray each year to control any fresh outbreaks.

Waters: Luckham is watered by the house bore that was drilled in August 2001 to a depth of 152 metres and pumped at a rate of 0.83L per second (664 gallons per hour). This water is pumped from a depth of 45.5 metres by a submersible pump through a 63mm pipeline to 2 x 10,000 gallon poly tanks at a rate of 350 gallons per hour. There is a solar pump at Number 2 Mill pumping into 2 x 5,500 gallon tanks. There are 6 large dams ranging in size from 15,000 to 40,000 cubic metres, as well as several short term water holes and the permanent overshot water hole in Nesbitt Creek. The house water is supplied by a windmill from the overshot in Nesbitt Creek or by windmill from Corella Dam. Most of these dams have been cleaned out in the last 2 or 3 years.

Water is pumped from the Shed dam by windmill into an overhead tank where it is gravity fed to a tank and trough in Well Paddock. It can also be pumped from this dam back up to the Mono Bore turkey nest in Shed Paddock. There are 2 sub-artesian bores on the Luckham / Belmont block that are equipped with windmills pumping into turkey nest and troughs. A solar pump situated at Mimosa Dam pumps water to a 5000 gallon tank and trough in Triton paddock. There are a total of 25 troughs and 8 tanks.

Fencing: The majority of the fencing is in good condition consisting mostly of ring lock and 2 barbs. Any new fencing is mainly 3 barbs. There has been 14km of boundary fence renewed with 4 barb in last 5 years. There are 10 main paddocks and 6 smaller holding paddocks.

Yards: The house yards are mainly of steel portable and permanent panels which include a calf cradle, drafting facility, crush and head bail. The Luckham/Belmont block yards are mostly steel portable panels with 2 permanent steel & cable yards complete with pound draft and crush.  Both sets of yards have water troughs and sprinkler system. There are stables and horse yards beside the Luckham cattle yards.

Buildings: There is a hay shed / storage shed as well as a covered in workshop and vehicle shed. The 8 stand shearing shed built in 1964 is in good overall condition. There is an old crutching shed on the Luckham / Belmont block that is in a good well maintained condition.

Homestead: The homestead built in 1962 has 4 bedrooms and is in sound structural condition is set in a tidy well kept garden. There is a second cottage with 2 bedrooms that is in good condition.

Carrying Capacity: Owner estimates up to 2,300 dry cattle ranging in size from weaners to heavy feeders or equivalent in an average season.

Livestock & Plant:Will be offered bare of livestock, plant & equipment.

Agents Remarks: Luckham is regarded as good carrying country that is in close proximity to the Winton saleyards and rail trucking yards, making it ideal to grow out or fatten store cattle brought in from the north. Very good weight gains are experienced with this quality property in an average season. It is a very good mix of country with pebbly open undulating downs, heavy carrying grey and chocolate cracking soils running down to several small creek systems. There is very little to no Prickly Acacia. Vendors diligently spot spray each year to control any fresh outbreaks. Enjoying a good start to the season and as it is very lightly stocked, it would comfortably carry 1800 to 2000 weaners until the end of the year.
