Central and North Burnett Times - - REAL ESTATE -

BALLY Lo­ran, es­tab­lished in 1896, has a to­tal area of 175.342 ha or 433.27 acres on 3 por­tions of el­e­vated red soil cul­ti­va­tion with a northerly slope.

The prop­erty is ir­ri­gated from three springfed trenches / stor­ages and pumps at be­tween 28,000 to 40,000 gph.

The wa­ter­ing is set up in three stand­alone sys­tems, one from each trench, all with 6" PVC un­der­ground mains with hy­drants and also be­fore the pivot pads.

The present ir­ri­ga­tion setup wa­ters 200 acres and the trenches have been in place for 35 years which have never been empty.

There are three ir­ri­ga­tors, a Cen­tre Pivot which cover 45 acres which can be shifted into three lo­ca­tions and two oth­ers if re­quired, a lat­eral boom and a trav­el­ling ir­ri­ga­tor.

There is a four bed­room high­set tim­ber home with two car spa­ces un­der, dou­ble garage 6x6m, ma­chin­ery shed 30x11m, work­shop shed 12x12m, boat and car­a­van shed, oil and spare parts shed, chem­i­cal shed, large diesel fuel tank and bowser and four si­los.

They are cur­rently grow­ing peanuts, corn, mung beans and chick­peas.

This is a very well pre­sented prop­erty with some of the best red soil you can find.
