Situated on the headwaters of the Cape River Goldsborough comprises fertile frontage soils and creek flats timbered by coolibah, poplar gum and Moreton Bay ash with black ti tree gullies extending to red soil goldfields type country, mainly bloodwood with pebbly quartz ridges and box hollows, also
areas of sandy granite ironbark country rising to steeper but still grassy hillsides and bounded by the White Mountains National Park in the west.

Goldsborough is a very safe holding naturally well grassed throughout by forest Mitchell, black and white spear and Indian couch, also patches of spinifex and kangaroo grass, some scattered buffel and seca stylo with plentiful edible shrub, quinine, prickly wattle and silver myrtle. The property is virtually free from noxious weeds and pests.

A major upgrade of the stock water supply has been undertaken in recent years and is now a feature of the property. Two pipeline systems totalling some 35 km in length supply 16 troughs and 4 poly tanks from a permanent spring with automatic genset and pump plus a new bore, capacity 4000 g.p.h. with submersible pump connected to mains power.

There are also 26 open dams, not all permanent, with 4 recently built or enlarged, several with estimated two years supply. Also 7 bores, wells or river spears, equipped with windmills or pumps provide additional supply with seasonal water available from several springs and numerous holes in the river and creeks.

The homestead complex is set in attractive riverside surrounds and includes a neat and comfortable three bedroom house, staff quarters, new machinery shed and storage sheds.
The station cattle yards are of 1000 head capacity built in steel and timber with all necessary handling facilities.
There are 10 main paddocks, numerous holding or horse paddocks and laneways, with mustering squares at most waters.

The property is offered bare of stock, plant and equipment.

A stocking rate in excess of 4,000 head is considered safe and consistent.

Goldsborough is a well established breeding property noted for producing superior weaners at high calving rates with a low requirement for supplementary feeding and is now exceptionally well watered.
