About this property

The property is heavily forested with a huge variety of native flora & fauna (see attached) classified as moist sclerophyll with a large percentage of lush rainforest. Regeneration work has been ongoing since 2011 and substantial progress has been made with the re-emergence of many species of native flora. A number of tracks enable the forest to be accessed for either regeneration operations or for fire. The creek is used as both an auxiliary supply of water to the house and to the grounds by gravity feed. In addition creek water is pumped (electric) to increase pressure for either garden or as a firefighting resource. A 9000lt rainwater tank and a 600lt header tank keeps an ample quantity of rainwater supplied to the house, resulting in virtually no need for creek water usage in the house. (The tank water level has never been below 75% full). The large composting toilet and grey water system helps reduce water use with the added advantage of providing a bonus to the garden. There is a small orchard attached to the house where wallabies can be seen grazing regularly. There is ample space beneath the house and veranda providing abundant storage (including a vehicle). In addition there are three small sheds, one currently used as a wood shed. The house is heated by wood stove while cooking is by either wood or gas stove. Cooling is by ceiling fans. There is an ample supply of wood available within the covenant conditions. There is a large screened gazebo located on the banks of the creek. A great outdoor venue. The approach to the house is via a lovely shaded drive running alongside the creek. The property amounts to a delightful nature retreat only 2 hours from Brisbane with the friendly NSW town of Kyogle a pleasant 30 min drive away. Kyogle provides all your needs.
