Family held cattle grazing land in Queensland up for auction

A circa 4,000 hectare rural landholding in Queensland’s premium cattle country has been listed for the sale via auction on July 20, the first time the land has been offered in more than 150 years.  

Located in Mundubbera, in Queensland’s Wide Bay-Burnett region, Lot 1 and 4 of Deepbank Station comprise two freehold titles covering nearly 4,187 hectares. 

The grazing land, comprising a mix of cleared and improved soil types, is being sold by the McCord family, which have a connection with the region spanning six generations. 

The listing is through CBRE Agribusiness’ Thomas Warriner, Geoff Warriner and Chris Holgar. 

“Properties in this area do no change hands often, which is testament to the productive nature of the region,” said Holgar. 

The property was originally timbered to Brigalow, Box and Ironbark trees, while grass types including Buffel, Creeping Bluegrass, Green Panic, Urochloa and Rhode support a productive cattle operation. 

The property’s major selling factors include the secure stock water resources, which include six bores, six dams and three creek systems, said Warriner.

Holgar said the areas timbered with Narrow Leaf Ironbark and Spotted Gum were also ideal for harvest as an additional source of income.
