The Courier-Mail - Property - - COASTAL & REGIONAL - EL­IZ­A­BETH RENNIE

ONLY 2.5 hours north­west of Bris­bane, this 311.5ha property of­fers peace and tran­quil­lity, with lush moun­tain sur­rounds and sweep­ing scenic views.

Home to ex­otic and do­mes­tic an­i­mals, which graze freely, Moun­tain Creek wilder­ness re­treat boasts rich vol­canic scrub soils, open grassed ar­eas and roughly 24.3ha of rem­nant rain­for­est.

A mix of deer, scrub bulls, camels, billy goats, grey and white buf­falo, and more call the property home, while a va­ri­ety of pas­ture is also fea­tured, in­clud­ing Hamil, Green Panic, Gatton Panic, Kikuyu and Pur­ple Pigeon grasses.

A lowset brick house is set on a ridge, and fea­tures four bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, a full-length ve­randa and an un­der­cover bar­be­cue area.

In ad­di­tion, there is a three­bay shed, a work­shop and a two-bay car­port.

A sep­a­rate two-bed­room cabin has the po­ten­tial to sleep eight people, and also in­cludes a large wooden deck over­look­ing the creek, a two-bay shed and a large cold room.

There is also a work­ing set of cat­tle yards, with full vet crush, and a new 2m high fence around the boundary line, di­vided into four pad­docks and two hold­ing pad­docks.

Only an hour from the Sun­shine Coast, this property has a pre­his­toric vol­cano plug, 50,000L rain­wa­ter ca­pac­ity and two stand-alone so­lar power sys­tems.
