Livestock Lifestyle Acreage in Walkamin
At approximately 176 Acres, this property has unlimited potential! Nestled in the town of Walkamin which is half way between Atherton and Mareeba with a population of under 700, Australian National Geographic has rated this town and the surrounding area as the "Perfect Climate". Average temperatures range from 17 minimum to 27 maximum with an average rainfall of 900mm. Walkamin is a scenic and quiet rural township that holds its real estate value due to the above climatic conditions and rich, red volcanic soils.
Current grazing conditions on this property can be expanded by introducing some cell grazing, however, at present the property comfortably runs 50 head due to the high level of legume and good cattle grasses. The property has recently been spelled.
