Fitzroy Aggregation Provides Large-Scale Sustainable Farming Investment Opportunity

12 April 2022

The highly productive, 17,638ha Jimarndy Aggregation in the heart of central Queensland’s Fitzroy region is being offered for sale on behalf of the Simon family. 

CBRE’s Edward O’Dwyer and Nutrien Harcourt’s Phillip Wieland will steer an Expressions of Interest campaign for the Jimarndy, Tandarra and Tawarri properties, which include a mix of 1547 Brahman BREEDPLAN and 2906 predominantly commercial Brahman cattle. 

Mr O’Dywer noted, “With average annual rainfall of 607mm, and a proven carrying capacity of 6200 Adult Equivalent cattle, the aggregation is already attracting strong interest from local owners and institutional investors, with a focus on the established pasture history, cropping projects, abundant water and breeding herd.” 

“An incoming purchaser can benefit immediately from this highly productive grazing platform, which has been run as a self-sustaining business in all seasonal conditions and will appeal to buyers interested in large-scale, sustainable farming.” 

Jimarndy and Tawarri were purchased by the Simon family in 1997, with the adjoining Tandarra added in 2003.  

The Issaac River and its tributaries flow through the aggregation, providing 16 kilometres of river frontage. 

The Simon family has also invested in water infrastructure across the properties in addition to handling yard and pasture improvements, including the development of 680ha of Leucaena in the alluvial river country.   

This is supplemented by an elevated tableland plateau, providing diversity in growing climates. The plateau adjoins a 4410ha forestry lease, with additional income to be derived from a newly signed lease for the development of a hard rock quarry. 

The aggregation includes a 900m airstrip, its own campdraft arena and benefits from its central location, approximately 70km from Middlemount, and 225km from Rockhampton, Mackay and Emerald.   

Expressions of Interest close May 19, 2022.
