The Burdekin has long been regarded as one of the most productive agricultural districts in Australia. In recent years harsh climatic conditions and water shortages in other parts of the country have further highlighted the region's strengths. Even in the face of Australia's worst drought in living memory, the mighty Burdekin remain resilient and prosperous, the reason of this can be summed up in one word water!!!
That water supply includes a huge underground aquifer, the vast Burdekin and delta watercourses and the mighty Burdekin Falls Dam, which holds four times more water than the Sydney Harbour. The Burdekin's abundant, all year round supply of good-quality water as the regions number one asset. The districts rich supply of irrigation water combines with about 300 days of sunshine a year and fertile, well-drained soils, to make the Burdekin the most productive sugar cane growing area in Australia. About 80,000 ha of land in the Burdekin is dedicated to sugar cane. Burdekin farmers produce an average of 120 tonnes of cane per hectare - well above the national average of 80 tonnes per hectare, however in the past 3 years this property has averaged between 130 - 135 tonnes per hectare year in year out, due to its excellent fertile quality river loam soils.
The property is currently growing sugar cane and is a one man operation, with great infrastructure. It is an above average producer and has an abundance of water. This property has potential to grow a variety of crops such as sweet corn, maize, sorghum, lucerne, beans, melons, capsicum and cotton any crop you desire. The sheer volume of water availability and the flexibility of this property create an outstanding investment opportunity.
Inspections are highly recommended as the vendor wants to retire.
