Hi All

After 15 years of development I am selling my 7.5 arce (3 Hectare) permaculture property which I call 'The Kurwongbah Overflow.'

I hope this is ok to post here. =) I would LOVE if I could hand over all my hard work to someone who would keep caring for this amazing place just like I have. I did my first PDC in 2005 and advanced PDC years later with David Holmgren

I have some older pics here but it should give you some idea of the place.

I will add some more shortly once we formally list online.

The address is 75 Browns Road, Kurwongbah 4503 Australia

The farm has been my passion and development site for Biochar and organic research for close to 15 years, while it is not certified organic I have not sprayed ANYTHING in 15 years and the previous owners of 10 years informed me they did not either.

All the hard work is done. 2000m2 food forest with 120 mixed sub-tropical fruit trees and bananas, large vegi growing areas with amazing black soil which I have been improving for 15 years.

Two story brick house with an amazing view, 3 bed upstairs, two studies down stairs and double garage. In ground 75k litre in ground salt water pool, 2.5kw solar grid fed, solar hot water. 110k litres of rain water storage. large 15x9m shed with workshop including benches, horse tac room and 2 parking bays, horse round yard, 8x15m horse stable/shelter. Large steel rack for timber and steel storage. level 40 foot high cube shipping container with roller door located next to the workshop. Site also has large truck access gate.

Land is fully hardwood horse friendly fenced with roughly 5 areas of flat open improved pasture. Large dam roughly 1.5m litres which is fed from a well refined swale/drain system. Petrol pump and underground ag lines feed holding tanks in the food forest.

I am also hoping to include a 1974 Massey Ferguson in the sale, always kept in my shed and is in great always serviced condition, has a brand new high quality 4 foot slasher and a 3 point linkage lifting crane.

The land has 490m or frontage to Lake Kurwongbah's water catchment dam, Amazing wildlife and bird life, the SEQwater area that bounds the property is land locked so the view and area is shared by only a very few eyes.

I have also planted 100's of native koala fodder trees as well as mixed natives which now brings in masses of native birds and positive insects. Many of the trees have been permie planned and planted to create western shade and also to increase privacy.

The location while it can not be subdivided due to the area being with in a water catchment, development around the area has grown at an amazing rate, It has a concrete path with a 1.2km walk to a school/train station/shopping centre and roughy 5-6km to a major shopping area called North Lakes. The site is 4km from Brisbane's main north bound highway.

I have not set a final price as yet but I expect somewhere under 900k AUD

Why sell I hear you ask...... Partner and myself have just separated...

Got any questions please fire away.

I'm down in NSW, and I wanted to tell you how lovely your property is. I hope you find someone to love it as much as you have. My partner and I have just started saving for our permie dream home, so I am absolutely out of the running, but I wish you the best of luck.
