RITA ISLAND RURAL LIFESTYLE WITH FISHING & ACTIVITIES
- Land: 30 ha (75 acres)
Due to family health commitments, the family have reluctantly decided to make the break from the place they love so much and vowed they would never leave. The property is situated on Rita Island which is separated from the mainland by the Burdekin River. It boasts river silt soils and an abundance of river channel and clean bore water.
The mighty Burdekin River is only 200 metres from the back of the farm through a corridor of 150 acres of River Trust bushland which can double as a recreation area for a range activities. Famous Fishing spots where Barramundi and Mudcrab are so plentiful such as Hell Hole Creek, Keirles Landing on the Burdekin River and Phillips Camp Boat Ramp are all only minutes from the home.
The improvements include a recently renovated high set 5 bedroom home with new kitchen, walk-in pantry, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans, downstairs entertaining area, downstairs laundry aswell as a separate activity or storeroom area. The home also has a 5kva Solar System installed. The surrounding lawn area is fitted with a pop up sprinkler system and irrigated from a diesel powered spear pump which also supplies domestic water to storage tanks at the homestead. This pump can also be used for crop irrigation. There are multiple bay sheds with flood proof raised sections and an inventory of tractors and machinery that would accommodate a farm 3 times its size. (Machinery list available on request)
Flood irrigated with one open water pump from a Lower Burdekin Water entitlement and a brand new electric bore pump. Water is delivered through approx 2km of 315mm poly pipe and outlets, which has recently replaced the leaking outdated concrete underground pipes. Total area is approx 75 acres separated from the Burdekin River by a forest area which can be grazed.
The Vendor works a full time Job and runs the farm on his week off growing approximately 3,500 tonnes per year generating a very substantial second income.
The property is only 15 minutes to Ayr CBD and a little over an hour from Townsville City. There is a State Primary school at Jarvisfield only 5 minutes away and Secondary schools at Ayr.
This property is the perfect haven for an outdoor loving family with close access to Creek Fishing and crabbing and easy access to the Great barrier Reef. The farm can be run by someone with a full time job because of its irrigation set up and good soils, or a retiree looking for something to keep busy.
