About this listing
Here is an opportunity to secure approximately 620 acres of freehold land in Victoria's High Country. Located approximately 7.5km North of Swifts Creek, and approximately 20km South of Omeo, this large parcel of land comprises of six separate titles in seven allotments; three of them providing frontage on the Eastern boundary to the Great Alpine Road.

The land is gently undulating to the East, comprising of approximately 150 acres of arable land, and rising into approximately 350 acres of steeper type grazing country up to the ridgelines in the West, and has approximately 120 acres of lighter type bush, and is suitable for sheep grazing, or other alternate farming and life style pursuits.

The property does not include any major stock handling infrastructure, however does have a large tank servicing three troughs, and will be sold with a one mega liter water right for stock and domestic supply from the Tambo River. The boundary is fenced on all sides.

There is some new steel internal fencing making allowances for around 4 paddocks, and the property has 5 dams. Many of the steeper side access tracks have recently been swept with a dozer, along with the dams being cleaned and increased in size.

Most of the arable land has most recently grown wheat and barley, with both crops under sown to clover and Lucerne at that time, and most recently turnips and rape for grazing purposes. Both successful given the dry times. The average rainfall is estimated at approximately 24 inches; however, the last two seasons have been drier than average. The property most recently has been home to ewes with lambs at foot.

A lot of work has been done on the property, and it is now genuinely available for the next owner to put their stamp on it. With good access to the property off the Great Alpine Road, this land is a real opportunity for someone to capitalise on the current wool market, as a dry sheep turnout block, or use it hand in hand with the lifestyle areas for hunting purposes. This block would definitely compliment someone wanting to turn out merino weathers annually for wool and mutton production.

The property could suit a single owner operator, or alternately be suitable for a couple of mates to purchase in shares given the number of available titles and overall land size, along with the availability of one mega litre of stock and domestic water supply. There are some excellent views from the ridges and the potential of some interesting home sites STCA.

The backbone to the area stems historically from agriculture, the gold rush days, and the timber industry; with the local timber mill still in operation. The Swifts Creek township offers the local Pub for meals and a cold one, a bakery, the IGA supermarket - open daily, a Primary and a High school, a local swimming pool, Football, Netball and Bowls clubs, with a golf club not far up the road; and it has a licensed post office with fuel and mechanic on site.

All inspections are strictly by appointment only.
