Tallawalah & Jabiru Springs are located inland of Clairview at the gateway to the tropics on the Central Queensland Coast 200kms north of Rockhampton and 140kms south of Mackay.

It is here that the Bruce Highway meets the Coral Sea for the first of only three places along the entire Queensland Coast. This location provides reliable all weather access to meat processors and live export markets.

The combined area of Tallawalah and Jabiru Springs is 8,797 hectares (21,734 acres).

Both properties benefit from good and reliable rainfall. The average annual rainfall at the homestead since 1990 has been in excess of 1,100mm (44 inches) with significantly larger falls in the rainforest at the northern end of the valley. In the past 3 years, rainfall has been in excess of 2000mm. The Rainfall History Graph details 25 years rainfall history.

Clairview Creek forms up in the Tallawalah rainforest along the escarpment of the Connors Range and winds through the property for a distance of 18kms. The creek runs all year and maintains significant large permanent waterholes throughout the year.

Two irrigation licences are attached to the properties. An irrigation proposal for the Woodlands and Yakapanni paddocks has been prepared for either pivot or lateral distribution for the production of silage.

The present combined carrying capacity of Tallawalah and Jabiru Springs varies seasonally between 3,000 and 3,700 AE’s.

The properties are to auctioned initially combined as one lot.  Should a sale not be concluded for the combined lot then they will be offered individually.
