Barrambie station presents as an ideal entry level station and is in an area where other income opportunities abound.

The homestead complex has plenty of accommodation options and the property would be ideal for tourists who want to go prospecting, a training facility, mining exploration, or a great base for a contractor in the middle of an active mining region and of course, it is suited to be operated as a cattle station.

There is 24-hour solar power to the homestead and other accommodation, with a near new diesel generator as back up.

With the development of a few more water points and good management, the carrying capacity suggests that 400 cows could be run on the property.

Barrambie has been virtually destocked or very lightly stocked for the past 15 years and the range report gives the property a potential carrying capacity of 680 cattle units.

There are 60 cattle included in the asking price, being predominantly Droughtmaster with some Shorthorn blood and two Droughtmaster bulls.

The property was set up as a sheep station but is now in the process of being converted to cattle.

The owners have constructed one fully fenced paddock and a holding paddock and work has begun on boundary fence lines.

There are cattle yards and cattle trap yards on a few water points.

There are seven operational water points and eight other bores are available to be equipped.

There is also the potential that carbon farming income may be possible in the future once all the regulatory and legislative changes have been completed.

The western boundary is the vermin proof fence.

There is everything you could possibly need on hand and included in the asking price to run the property.

Extensive renovations have been done to the homestead, with the kitchen still to be done, but the homestead is comfortable and functional.

Established extensive gardens, vegetable gardens and fruit trees make the place a literal oasis, with passionfruit, grapes, mulberries, fig, blueberries, bananas, walnut, nectarine, orange, lime, lemon, mandarin, mangoes, the list goes on and chickens, so one could be completely self-sufficient.

A lot of love has gone into this property and it can be easily managed.

There is a good complement of plant and equipment included in the asking price, coupled with the cattle.
