Big block for cane grow­ing

Central and North Rural Weekly - - PROPERTY -

AF­TER three gen­er­a­tions com­pil­ing this large-scale ir­ri­gation ag­gre­ga­tion, the Cronin fam­i­lies have de­cided it’s time to pur­sue other in­ter­ests.

The fam­ily op­er­a­tion is held in five farms, hav­ing a to­tal area of 1093 hectares on 14 free­hold por­tions lo­cated in the Bucca re­gion, north­west of Bund­aberg, with ap­prox­i­mately 6km of frontage to the Kolan River.

Pri­mar­ily de­voted to sugar cane pro­duc­tion, the ir­ri­gation com­po­nent cov­ers 525 hectares of vary­ing soil types, all suit­able for crop di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion.

The own­ers have grown peanuts for crop ro­ta­tion in re­cent years.

With the grow­ing de­mand for larger land parcels to meet the in­creas­ing macadamia de­vel­op­ment within this re­gion, the mar­ket­ing agent Baden Lowrie, from El­ders Bund­aberg, is ex­pect­ing strong in­ter­est from within this in­dus­try sec­tor.

The ag­gre­ga­tion has mul­ti­ple wa­ter sources and in­cludes a 1459-me­gal­itre al­lo­ca­tion from the Kolan River Scheme, four equipped un­reg­u­lated bores and nu­mer­ous on-farm stor­age dams.

Apart from the ir­ri­gation coun­try, the bal­ance land area is utilised for cat­tle graz­ing and com­prises open and tim­bered for­est coun­try.

The im­prove­ments in­clude five dwellings and nu­mer­ous ma­chin­ery/stor­age sheds and tim­ber cat­tle yards.

The sale is of­fered bare of crop, ma­chin­ery and live­stock with ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est clos­ing at noon on Novem­ber 28.

The in­for­ma­tion mem­o­ran­dum is avail­able upon re­quest.
