Longreach offers Prep to Secondary Schooling, Distance Education, Pastoral College, Medical, Sporting and Recreational facilities. Daily air and bus services to and from Brisbane. Twice monthly cattle sales are held in Blackall. Saleyards and rail trucking facilities in Longreach.

Area & Tenure:

Lot 12 & 13 on SP267167 – 13234 Ha (32702 Ac) – Freehold

Lot 8 MO84 – .8382 Ha (2.07 Ac) – Term Lease

Lot 15 MO74 – 258.9988 Ha (640 Ac) – Special Lease

Local Authority:  Longreach Regional Council

Rainfall:

Longreach long term medium rainfall is 393.5mm and average is 439.2mm per annum.

Country:

The country to the east of the Stock Route Reserve is an excellent mix of soft undulating pebbly open downs, with small areas of red loamy False Sandalwood/Leopardwood country with stony Gidgee ridges. Most of the open downs country is lightly timbered with Whitewood, Vinetree, Boree and Bauhinia with Coolibah along the water courses. The Maneroo and Bull Creek channels run north/south through the middle of the property. This channel country is well covered with winter herbages, forbs and grasses. The timber is mostly Coolibah, Dogwood and other native shrubs. Most of the country to the west of the channels is a mixture of undulating red open pebbly downs that is lightly timbered with Whitewood, Boree and Vinetree with Coolibah along the channels and small areas of thick scrubby Gidgee timber and semi open Boree and Gidgee woodlands. The open downs country is very heavily covered with lambs tongue, carrot top and many other winter herbages. Only a small percentage of the Mitchell grass has re-shot at this stage but would expect more to shoot as the weather warms up. There is a handful of Prickly Acacia and Parkinsonia around some of the water points but at this stage they will be easy to control and eradicate.

Waters:

The Manningham Artesian Bore is situated on Strathdarr – Lot 8 on Crown Plan MO84 with access via easement A. This bore is owned by “Manningham” with a water agreement giving Strathdarr limited access to the water. The bore is equipped with a windmill and a back up Kubota motor and Mono pump. Water is pumped into the large high wall turkey nest that has recently been cleaned out and enlarged. The bore has a limited natural flow once the cold head is pumped off.  Water is gravity fed  from the turkey nest at the bore to another turkey nest in Silston Paddock and then on to 5 other water points in nearby paddocks. Water is also gravity fed through another pipeline to the sheep yard and house complex servicing 2 tanks and 10 water points in nearby paddocks along the way. The Channel Paddock sub-bore, windmill, turkey nest and trough waters the Channel Paddock and water is piped to a tank and trough in Howden Paddock. The large dam on the boundary of Howden and Hallas Paddock is equipped with solar power to Mono pump that pushes water to a cup and saucer and 2 tanks in Hallas Paddock. There are 7 dams, all of which have been desilted in the past 24 months. They are fenced off and equipped with solar pumps or windmills, except for the dam on the Strathdarr boundary. There are plenty of semi-permanent water holes along the Maneroo, Harp, McLaughlan and Shanty Creek systems especially after the wet season.

Fencing & Paddocks:

“Manningham” is  well fenced into 8 large paddocks, 8 smaller paddocks, 4 holding paddocks plus the Stock Route Reserve. Most of the paddocks on the eastern side of the Reserve are connected by a laneway system back to the yards. The majority of the boundary fencing is in good stock proof condition. Most of the internal fencing is in good to very good condition except for a couple of the internal small paddock fences. The boundary fences are a mixture of 2 barb/4 plain, hinge joint with 1 barb/1 plain or ring lock and 1 barb, while the majority of the internal fencing is 1 barb and 5 plain.

Yards:

The main set of sheep yards are at the woolshed with a smaller set of good condition steel sheep yards at the eastern end of the lane. There is another small set of sheep yards at the dam in Howden Paddock. The main set of yards has water troughs, sprinkler set-up, covered classing race as well as several large holding yards with water. The basic cattle yards are of steel construction with calf cradle and old crush with the capacity to handle approximately 80 head. There is a set of stables and horse yard, also a steel molasses tank.

Carrying Capacity:

The district average carrying capacity for Manningham would be approximately 8,500 ewes or approximately 1,000 cows or  equivalent in an average season.

Improvements:

The large main house is fully gauzed and has 3 bedrooms with built in cupboards, kitchen laundry, bathroom, verandah and dining room at one end with an entertainment room, office, staff kitchen, pantry, bathroom and two bedrooms at the other end. It is a good structurally sound house set on cement stumps with hardwood floors. The house is in need of some minor repairs. There are 2 hot-water systems on the patio area at the rear of the homestead and 2 evaporative air-conditioners mounted on the roof.

The second house is fully gauzed with 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and dining room and is set on cement stumps and has an evaporative air-conditioner mounted on the roof. It is also in need of minor repairs.

The fully gauzed dormitory style quarters can sleep up to 12 people; there are another 2 single bedrooms with built in cupboards, refrigerated air-conditioners and a verandah. It is complete with 2 showers, 2 toilets, hot-water system and laundry. This building is set on cement stumps with evaporative air-conditioner mounted on the roof. 4 rainwater tanks, overhead tank and garden shed are located within the buildings complex.

There is a lockable 10m x 10m reinforced steel grain shed with cement floor, a lockable 20m x 12m— 5 bay workshop / machinery shed that has 1 bay cemented. This shed includes a lockable chemical / storage room in one corner and 2 bays that are open each end. There is a small shed with an auxiliary power plant – Lister motor and Dunlite generator, fuel shed, meat house, chook pens and dog pens to complete the buildings at the homestead complex.

The 6 stand (only 3 stands have overhead gear) woolshed is in very good condition. It is raised to store sheep underneath to keep them out of the weather when required.

Agents Remarks:

“Manningham” is a great mix of country with good soft undulating lightly timbered open downs country interspersed with good flood-out channels and small areas of Boree and Gidgee woodlands. It is well watered and has good sound solid structural improvements. It is presently enjoying an excellent season following good recent rainfall.

Until recently “Manningham” was owned by the Longreach Pastoral College and was used as one of the rural training properties for their students. It has mainly been used as a sheep breeding enterprise therefore the majority of the infrastructure is set up for sheep, although with a new set of cattle yards it would also be a very good cattle property.

Inspection recommended.

Will be sold bare of livestock, plant and equipment
