The property Omaroo situated near Wamuran, is a "rare breed", offering a quality lifestyle farm with breathtaking vistas and is perfectly located for a buyer seeking to be close to Brisbane and or the Sunshine Coast.

It is ideally suited to either those with a busy lifestyle with business interests in town while seeking an established private farm or perhaps those seeking the quiet quality of life every day while not far from family and friends.

Consisting of 20 hectares, it is under an hour's drive door to door from the Brisbane GPO. The electric express train to Brisbane is just down the road at Caboolture. Brisbane Airport is only 40 minutes, and Mooloolaba surf beach also an easy 40-minute drive.

Omaroo was set up as a small scale private forestry with cattle grazing.

It is fully fenced with two good dams as well as access to around 200m of Antibidawa Creek. The country has good character and is easily driven around to look over the holding.

The owners, Greg and Susan Dark, have planted a 3500-tree private forest of cabinet timbers and others. It was good for their business and the property has a full business plan and forestry report available.

The private forest of around 3000 cabinet timbers include Eucalypts, Gympie Messmates, Ironbarks and Blackbutt trees.

There are also stands of quandong, hoop pine and silky oaks which can be harvested in the future or allowed to continue to provide an ever changing eco system for the wildlife. There is also a small section of virgin vine tree rainforest.

The home is easy care with simple indoor - outdoor living all year round. The office enjoys high speed NBN for meetings or catching up with family over the internet.

The property comes with an extensive list of near new tractors and implements, a Kobota RTV, and a farm ute.

Selling agent Peter Douglas, Ray White Rural, said the Dark family had enjoyed an easy lifestyle and used nearby Wamuran for grocery and hardware shopping.
