Socceroo legend Tim Cahill’s family has scored a Byron Bay hinterland hobby farm.
They’ve paid $1.7 million for Highgate, a 13-hectare holding at Eureka, inland from Byron Bay.
The northern NSW farm is formally in the name of his parents, Tim Cahill Sr and Sisofa, with the transfer documents revealing the purchasing finance was provided by Cahill Jr.
It is expected to remain as a hobby farm as Cahill has privately expressed an interest in an agricultural pursuit. 
Unique Estates selling agent Gary Brazenor suggested the property was suitable for stock and horses and could easily be converted for mixed-use farming.
It is currently home to 15 head of cattle.
A 2007 built Colonial-style homestead high on a hill, it features decking which looks out to the hinterland across its own 8000sq m of country gardens.
The traditional homestead was built after its last sale in 2003 to the Gasteen family at $650,000.

Set five minutes from Federal and 10 minutes from Bangalow, there are five fully fenced paddocks and a large spring-fed dam with bore.
The striker, who played a crucial part in the Socceroos’ journey to World Cup qualification, had been spotted flying into northern NSW with purchasing intent before the recent cup games.
Cahill scored twice in Australia’s 2-1 win over Syria last month, celebrating his second goal, by forming a T symbol with his arms. 
The celebration was interpreted by some as a plug for his sponsor, the Byron Bay-based online travel store TripADeal. 
“I’m loving living in Melbourne,” he recently said.
“The food, the culture, the fashion. They call it the sporting capital of the world and it is. It’s fantastic. ”
He suggested the only bad thing about Melbourne was the weather, however he cited the fact that he lived in England for 15 years “so it’s not so bad”.
Upon his return from playing overseas, Cahill bought a luxury home in Melbourne for $2,775,000.
Cahill had previously owned a Caringbah South waterfront which sold for $5.7 million in 2015.
Cahill still owns a Horningsea Park property in Sydney’s west bought with the family in 1999 for $260,000.
