Located in the highly regarded Upper Rouchel district of NSW and neighbouring the untouched natural beauty of the world-famous Barrington Tops National Park. Comprises four Lots totalling 150.60 Ha (373 Ac) of predominately pristine timbered hill country, with stands of mature native hardwood timber as well as lighter stands of timbered to open grazing areas.
Uses/Potential Income Sources: This ‘off the grid’ multi-use property offers a range of activities including timber harvesting or onsite sawn timber production using your own portable sawmill, eco-tourism, carbon offset potential, four-wheel driving, camping, hunting, motor bike riding, bushwalking/exploring, mountain biking or just getting away from it all. It is the complete country experience simply awaiting you and your family. The great escape for nature lovers to enjoy the serenity that comes with this secluded and private property.
• Timber Production: This property has been selectively logged in its past and there remains stands of millable timber on the property which could be selectively harvested under a Private Native Forestry Plan (to be established by the new purchasers). An existing plan with the current owners is currently in place allowing selective logging on the property. Established relationships with timber mills and timber cutters are also in place.
• Country, Water and Driving: Natural springs provide water to the property at some points, with some feeding paddock dams. There are numerous 4×4 vehicle trails throughout, helping you to traverse the property with relative ease. Fencing ranges from fair to good in sections across the property. Chocolate/red basalt soils predominate. A semi-permanent water course known as Right Hand Creek, runs through the bottom of the property.

• Privacy: The property offers its guests the luxury of total privacy, coupled with spectacular views of the nearby Barrington Tops and picturesque Upper Rouchel Valley. Scattered among the tall timbers there are pockets of natural rainforest vegetation and diverse abundant wildlife, including at times deer.
• Topography Access/Egress: You will need a dedicated 4-wheel drive vehicle to access and drive through this property. It is a hill block in a mountain area with plateaus and shelf country, typical of this location. Be prepared with driving up and down to access and drive through the property.
