S1571 - WATSON RIVER STATION

Situated in Cape York Peninsula approximately 2.5 hours driving time from Weipa, Watson River Station is a property of 89,000 hectares under a Pastoral Holding Lease current to 30/09/2063. The country is well grassed and undulating with open timber of bloodwood, box, ironwood and gum ridges running into open melon hole gum flats. Developed from a virgin state in 1985 the property now has significant 3-barb fencing: eleven paddocks, covering approximately half of the block, two sets of cattle yards, one at the homestead and one at the top end and a set of portable yards. A reliable wet season average of 65 inches annually, a total of twenty-six earth dams, a large number of lagoons and waterholes, inside and outside the fenced areas and three major river systems (Watson River, Merkunga and Kurracoo creeks) running through the property ensure reliable and widespread water supply.
Improvements are largely limited to the southern end of the property leaving the northern areas very much in a pristine state. The current cattle herd provides an excellent base from which to build in order to realise the full stocking potential of the property. Outback tourism, as yet untouched, also offers vast potential: hunting feral animals, bird watching, crocodile spotting, bushwalking and the like. The property is serviced by weekly airmail, RFDS and School of Distance Ed from Cairns. For more information please contact the selling agent or follow the link http://watsonriverstation.com.au/
