View Listing

Situated south of Townsville, in the small town of Horseshoe Lagoon, it is surrounded by mango farmland (for sale separately).

The Bartlett Road property’s facilities include the main 21m x 32m shed, a 12m x 9m smoko room, and an office block/donga that includes two toilets, one shower and a store room.

The three fan-forced cold rooms can hold 33 pallets each and are covered by a 15m x 18m shed.

The packing facility comes complete with a packing line machine which can pack a variety of fruits and vegetables. It also features a bulk dip tank, bin tipper, hopper, set of brushes, a grading table and multiple packing tables.

Inside the registered processing room you will find dryers capable of drying 20kg of mango a day, a stainless steel slicer and all stainless steel benches.

In terms of irrigation, the property offers a 2-inch submersible bore pump.

A tractor, mister blower and spray units, are just some of the equipment available; a full list of equipment is available on application with the listed agent.

While basic, the three-bedroom house offers the standards such as a quaint kitchen, dining room, lounge room, a practical inside laundry and veranda.

Horseshoe Lagoon is a rural as it comes, but this coastal property isn’t entirely on its own; there is a United service station 4km away and the township of Giru – which has a day-care centre and primary school – is less than 10km away. The Giru International Hotel is the local watering hole, while the town also offers a lawn bowls club, a public pool, and the biggest of four sugar mills in the Burdekin shire.

The local primary school bus stops out the front of the farm, while the high school bus stop is just 1km away.

The property is priced at $600,000, and for an extra outlay you can purchase the neighbouring mango plantations to really kick-start this tropical operation.

There’s a 3ha block and a 2ha block consisting entirely of mango trees. The first is priced at $210,000 while the smaller one is $150,000.
