This property offers amazing versatility with great potential for backgrounding, farming or crop-fattening. Currently destocked, the property boasts an abundant body of Buffel, Rhodes and Green Panic grasses.

Offered for genuine sale due to the dissolution of a family partnership.

Country Type

“Lucky Dip” comprises 6983 acres of rich, dark soil growing a huge body of Buffel, Green Panic and Rhodes Grass.

The property is a wonderful balance of gently undulating land types, ranging from Brigalow, Belah, Blackbutt country to areas of Softwood scrub falling to heavier black soil, brigalow country.

Since being cleared in the 1960’s, all of “Lucky Dip” has at some time been cultivated. 1600 acres of Sorghum stubble is currently present, being planted in 2022. A further 260 acres of cultivation is ready for re-farming or sowing back to grasses.


“Lucky Dip is fenced into eleven main paddocks with a centralised laneway system connecting most paddocks to the yards. Fences are in good, functional condition, primarily steel pickets with timber strainers.
