When Mack & Gilruth first bought this property 24 years ago it was completely undeveloped. Combining their love of the country with Mack's wonderful blend of extensive knowledge and experience as a senior agronomist for the CSIRO, they have preserved nature's beauty and developed a successful grazing enterprise to create this cattle farm with a difference'.
People who love beautiful wildlife, real privacy and cattle will just adore this property.
The owners have appointed Ray White Rural Brisbane to market and sell the property.
