Quiz champion Honza Mikula has listed his 37 hectare Captains Flat property. 

Mikulov, set south of Queanbeyan, NSW, come with an 1890s mines office residence dating back to its time as the bustling copper mining site of the Lake George Mining Co.

The property (pictured above and below) comes with a landscape of concrete ramparts and relics of the bygone era surrounded by native forest.

John Buckley at RE/MAX Capital is taking it to September 1 auction. Buckley expects the property to fetch somewhere between $600,000 and $650,000.

The holding, which is located on Old Mines Road, last traded in the 1960s after the liquidation of the London-based mining company.

Mikula has been on Rockwiz as well as Who Wants to be a Millionaire? in his pursuit of recognition as an Australian quiz champion.
