Comments
Brookdale is a very well located property, situated just off the Flinders highway with year round access. It is close to all business and social amenities including an excellent choice of schools in Charters Towers. The property is in a safe rainfall area and has a good reputation for the quality of the cattle turned off it. Ther is real potential to diversify the property by utilising the irrigation licence, with the country suitable for hay and luceana production as well as small cropping or citrus production. It is very easily operated and would especially suit someone wanting to semi retire or someone with another off farm business.
