How’s the serenity?

The Western Star - - Rural Weekly -

BON­NIE Doon is sim­ply one of the best land hold­ings avail­able near the Gold Coast to­day. This is fer­tile, rich dairy coun­try, ris­ing from the per­ma­nent flow of the Nerang river flats through Kikuyu coun­try that is as soft as but­ter through to stun­ning ancient rain­for­est.

Nes­tled in the Nu­min­bah Valley, the rec­tan­gu­lar shape block is split by the Nerang-Mur­willum­bah road with Lam­ing­ton Na­tional Park on one side and Spring­brook Na­tional Park on the other.

Both sides of the road have spec­tac­u­lar views look­ing up and down the valley and through to Mount Warn­ing and the bor­der ranges along with Ship­stern and Egg Rock.

The ma­jor­ity of the prop­erty is cleared im­proved pas­tures of Kikuyu, Rhodes and clovers. The soils in the el­e­vated ar­eas are rich, red and vol­canic. The creek flats are darker al­lu­vial soils.

At the west­ern edge, the prop­erty has about 40 hectares of stun­ning virgin rain­for­est coun­try that bounds Lam­ing­ton Na­tional Park. Along with tall stran­gler figs and pines are an abun­dance of unique tim­bers to the re­gion.

At 173 hectares, this is one

of the largest pro­duc­tive hold­ings near the Gold Coast. The beaches are only a short drive and the school bus to the Gold Coast pri­vate and pub­lic schools ar­rives at the gate. Nu­min­bah also has a pri­mary school which is within walk­ing dis­tance.
