Located on the Mount Abundance Road, 14km south west of Roma, Delamere is in three freehold titles, all of which have frontage to a bitumen road. Two titles have a house and shed on them already.

The Mount Abundance area has a long history of being the pick cultivation country in the Maranoa region. In 1846 Surveyor-General Thomas Mitchell named the area after the "abundance of pasture" in the area. True to the quality of the land in 1927, 57 allotments were advertised for lease by the Lands Department with the condition that an area had to be used to grow wheat.
Marketing agent Rob Wildermuth, Ray White Rural, said the sale of Delamere was a rare opportunity to buy the highly sort after Mount Abundance area.
"Delamere is equally suited for growing grain crops or fodder crops for livestock fattening, hay production or feedlot silage," Mr Wildermuth said.
