Acacias’ close proximity to Theodore provides ease of access to major arterial roads and through that, end markets located north, east and south.

  • Size/Area:


  • Predominate Use: Acacia is an excellent backgrounding and finishing operation which is close to markets and offers reliable weight gains. It can also grow cash crops or produce hay as the flood irrigation country can be planted to whatever the owner desires. The property development has been carried out in a way that allows ease of management and provides the ability to achieve optimal production throughout the year.
  • Tenure: Lot 4 & 22 Plan DW374 & DW140
  • Rainfall: 29 inch/year
  • Improvements:

    Cattle Yards
    A set of new near ProWay yards is situated on an elevated position enabling stock movement during inclement weather conditions. Features of the yards include a large undercover work area, Pro Chute Immobilizer vet crush with scales and five-way draft, elevated walkway on rotary force, Morrisey calf cradle and concrete floors to part. The yards are considered to have a capacity of approximately 780 head.

    Feed Yards
    Situated alongside the yards are three recently constructed (March 2020) feed pens equipped with portable feed bins. These yards provide additional flexibility and are supported by two near new Ahrens silos (60 tonne and 72 tonne).

    Low-set weatherboard residence comprising four bedrooms and one bathroom set on an elevated position in established garden setting. Requires repair.

    ATCO style building comprising two single bed accommodation units.

    Timber framed shed with corrugated iron cladding to three sides. Concrete floor and power connected.

    Machinery/Hay Shed
    Timber framed high clearance shed with corrugated iron cladding to three sides and earthen floor.

    Shearing Shed
    Limited utility. Currently used for storage.

    Two near new Ahrens silos comprising 60 tonne (fertiliser) and 72 tonne (seed).

  • Country Type:

    Land and soil types are highly productive and what make the Theodore region one of the most productively diverse and tightly held regions in Queensland. Acacia is benefited by alluvial river flats adjacent to the Dawson River which transition to undulating softwood scrub soils towards the northern boundary.

    Flood irrigation areas have been planted to Oats and are seasonally grazed in conjunction with Leucaena and improved pasture areas. Some of the oats crop this year has been ungrazed and will be harvested. The irrigated portion of the Leucaena has been subdivided into 16 cells each with two watering points (primarily cup and saucer). This high degree of segregation enables an effective cell grazing model to be implemented and effective regeneration of pasture and Leucaena immediately following stock movement. In addition to the intensive grazing areas, approximately 427 hectares is classified as grazing land and is benefited by extensive stands of Buffel, Green Panic and Rhodes with Seca and native Stylos evident.

  • Water:

    Water infrastructure across Acacia is a feature and is underpinned by two distinct sources which feed into the water reticulation system. Stock grazing flood irrigation areas water out of the ring tanks while irrigated Leucaena areas are watered via a system of 15 watering points (primarily cup and saucer). Water is sourced either from the Centre Pivot pumps or a separate variable speed pump located on the Dawson River which feed into a 63 millimeter reticulation system.

  • Irrigation:

    Water Entitlements
    Acacia is benefited by substantial water licenses (by district standards) which underpin irrigation areas and ensure consistent annual production. Water licenses total a combined 2,699 megalitres comprising of both High Flow (2,199 megalitres) and Medium Security (500 megalitres). In addition to the above licenses is an Overland Flow allocation of 200 megalitres and 3 registered bores that are unregulated as to the amount of water allowed to be drawn from them. Pumping tests suggest these bores can produce Approx 2,263 megalitres per annum. For full details on these licenses please contact the agent.

    On farm water storages comprise three main ring tanks with a combined capacity of approximately 1,000 megalitres. Ring tanks and associated pumping infrastructure has been developed in such a way to enable movement of water from each ring tank to all irrigation fields.

    Irrigable Country is broken up as follows
    204 Ha of flood irrigation currently planted to oats.
    3 Centre Pivots covering 72 Ha each currently planted to Leucaena and improved pastures.

  • Fencing:

    Acacia has been subdivided into 18 primary paddocks and two holding paddocks associated with the near new ProWay yards. Fencing comprises three and four barb on a combination of split timber and steel posts with steel corner and gate assemblies. A laneway has been constructed linking the majority of paddocks to the yards

  • Plant & Equipment:

    A comprehensive list of pumping equipment can be provided on request to the selling agent.
