Local conservation officers have nominated this property (Earl Page) as a wonderland garden of Eden. The 250 cleared acres, (with some additional classical vine lowland rainforest) includes trees descended from the Gondwanaland species and documented by Queensland Parks and Natural Resources making this a truly outstanding natural habitat including extensive, species and plant lists.
This unique property has three kms of road frontage to Dr Pages Road and the central hill of 100 acres has views to Mt Cooroy, surrounding hills and the Cooloola Sand Blow. Approximately five to six kms of the permanently running Kin Kin creek forms the back boundary, with an extensive riparian strip and patches of genuine rainforest. The existence of the extremely rare and endangered Coxen's Fig-Parrot habitat has been identified amongst the variety of trees on the property and over 130 different bird species have also been documented with colonies of platypus and fish varieties located in several areas of the main creek.
The property is currently running a Droughtmaster breeding herd with a new set of galvanised steel stock yards, two x 2000 gal plus one 5000 gal concrete stock water tanks and an abundance of water. The main permanent creek is supplied by a significant catchment area up stream and the adjacent escarpment supplies the storm water run-off for the property's substantial underground water table.
There is a large engineer designed heavy duty portal steel frame shed built on top of the hill (located on the original site of the old watermelon shed - see last 2 images) with provision for expansion, containing kitchen and bathroom, with a 5000 gallon concrete house water tank plus an extra-large septic tank to cater for a future large dwelling. Three phase power runs through the property and also supplies power for the underground bores.
This unique property is well suited to investors and lifestyle owners with potential for a tax benefit from the farm component. As well under the Noosa Council Plan, ecofriendly guest accommodation and farm stay type developments are being considered in this locale. The Noosa to Fraser Island tour coaches pass the main entrance gate as an alternative route when the tide is up on the North Shore beach. Additionally there is ample room available for a private airfield to suit single or possibly twin-engine aircraft and there are currently several private airstrips located in the area.
The property is situated approximately 20 minutes north of Tewantin/Noosa on a good bitumen tourist road to Fraser Island. Earle Page is approximately 40 minutes north of the Sunshine Coast Airport which currently has a 2450 metre international runway under construction that will undoubtedly increase tourism to the Sunshine Coast.
