One of the largest productive individual land holdings on the Mid North Coast of NSW has become available, and will be bought at a fraction of the invested capital and well short of its potential.
Strike A Light is a large scale cattle breeding property situated just over an hours drive from Wingham, 90 minutes from the beaches and four hours to Sydney.
It still has all the advantages of coastal living - climate, rainfall and lifestyle.
Strike A Light was purchased in 2017 with a declared carrying capacity of 600 breeders and 300 horses, on 55 titles which includes multiple auto console titles.
The 6186 hectare (15288 acres) property is a third open grazing, a third open timber grazing and a third heavily timbered.
It has approval in place for 550ha of clearing
There is dual access to the property on Cells Road and Enfield Range Road, both of which are council maintained.
There is body truck and dog access to the main homestead, deck access on Enfield Range Road.
High quality internal access roads include gate and grid set up on all paddocks.
The property has been significantly de-stocked following the worst drought in the Manning Valley's recorded history.
Significant pasture improvement and fertiliser application has the property ready to fire for the new owners.
Fenced into 11 main paddocks, Strike A Light has three sets of yards, the main with a 500 head capacity and multiple holding paddocks.
Average rainfall for Strike A Light is 1170mm and after the worst drought in recorded history with 773mm in 2018 and 394mm for 2019, things appear to be returning to normal.
It features an abundant water supply with 4.6 kilometres frontage to the Rowleys River, 15.1km of Long Creek and 6.2km of Crawfish Creek.
The property also has multiple unnamed waterways and 76 new or cleaned dams.
First class infrastructure includes a rural airstrip, renovated three bedroom homestead, a 36m by 15m shed, 50ML water licence, 40ML dam and 35ha of irrigation.
Processing facilities are close by with Wingham Abattoirs plus live weight selling facilities at Taree.
Strike A Light is ideally located, only 50km to the local township of Wingham, serviced by shopping centres, cafes, produce stores, schools, fashion and multiple small businesses.
The major township of Taree is only 10km further and the beaches at Old Bar are only 65km away.
Strike A Light will go under the hammer on Thursday, June 4.
