The Gold Coast region’s rate per hectare for larger land holdings has been improving, according to the latest rural report from valuation firm Herron Todd White.

This is evident in a recent sale of the Scenic Rim property ‘Wirraway’ which broke a record in the region.

Originally listed for $20 million before being gutted by fire, the property sold for $8.05 million in July.

HTW director Janine Rockliff notes the buyer, a couple from western Queensland, own an adjoining 777.92 ha property which they purchased from the Queensland government for a total of $15.6 million.

This brings their total spend to $23.65 million or $17,602 per hectare gross.

The property is in close proximity of a number of other large holdings transacted in the past three years, including the 865ha Gorge Farm for $6.15 million and 1,345ha Broadlands property for $19.4 million.

Purchasers seeking larger holdings and an increased interest in the area has improved the rate per hectare.
