The land is completely flood free with approximately 80*acres fully fenced undulating pasture, four large dams and extensive timber and rainforest, including a scenic 3-kilometre riding trail.

Located in a pocket framed by breathtaking natural beauty, only one-hour north of Brisbane, and an easy drive from most Sunshine Coast locations, there is clear potential here to undertake an eco-tourism venture. Situated at the gateway to the Hinterland and theme park tourism strip on Steve Irwin Way, this could be in the form of 8 or more code assemble cabins (STCA), or structures to accommodate glamping and other short term accommodation solutions.
Plans for a fully council approved three bedroom caretakers’ residence and office are available. Other options include expanding the existing equine or cattle business, a health retreat or perhaps even creating a function centre for weddings and similar celebrations. The potential is really only limited by your imagination, and government regulations.
