Almost 1000 acres of land ready for grazing is up for grabs on Flinders Island, just off the north-east Tasmanian Coast.


Island living can be an inconvenience for some, but waking up to a gorgeous Tasmanian countryside each morning could probably convince most people.

Coral Glen, a freehold grazing property covering 377hectares (933 acres) of the island’s Memana region, has been owned by the same family since it was first developed in 1966

Elders Real Estate, which has the property currently listed on Farmbuy.com, says the property’s location is "warm and slightly elevated", though a bit of research shows that might not mean you need to bring summer clothes.

The grounds are securely fenced. Features include woodshed with concrete floor, fenced vegetable patch, solar hot water, wood heater, large verandah for entertaining," the listing says.

"The land is fenced into 30 paddocks fed by a lane system. Cattle yards are railway iron and timber with protective rubber on the race. The crush is undercover."

The 3 stand shearing shed is high set, and apparently has "excellent" yards.

The photos show a decent amount of infrastructure already set-up, which makes establishing a new livestock enterprise easier for the next owner.

"Stock water is provided by numerous dams, two solar pumps through 2-inch poly pipe, plus an electric bore pump. Rain water storage totals 25,000 gallons."

The homestead looks to be pleasant and manageable (we’ve seen some possibly too-lavish homesteads while scrolling through Farmbuy), with sheds, plenty of green nearby, and an office inside the house.

Elders says the house has had a recent fix-up, and that the land will be quite accommodating in terms of soil quality.

"The 3 bedroom home has been recently upgraded, and the 2 car garage and workshop is connected via undercover walkway to the house," the agency says.

"Soil type is sandy loam with rich clover flats. Fertilizer history is very good."

Coral Glen is currently home to 320 grown Herefords with 8 bulls, plus 140 calves with more calves on the way in a couple of months. 

There are also about 1400 grown merino sheep with 770 prime and merino lambs, and 8 rams.

Elders says all the livestock is available on evaluation, with another option for the next owner to buy the existing machinery.

In terms of the bottom line, anyone interesting in making a country sea-change to a small island off the coast of another small (okay, small-ish) island would only need to part with about $1.3 million. Bargain!
