Colliers Agribusiness’ Duncan McCulloch and Adrian Whelan from @realty have been appointed to bring one of Southern Tasmania’s largest privately owned native forests to market.
Known as Black Mountain Estate, the large-scale 936.04* hectare landholding comprises 10 Certificates and is ideally located on the pristine Tasman Peninsula, approximately 50 linear kilometres south of Hobart in Stormlea.
It is the first time the estate has been offered to market after over 28 years of family ownership.
Colliers’ Agribusiness National Director, Duncan McCulloch, said, “Black Mountain Estate is situated at Stormlea on the Tasman Peninsula in Southern Tasmania and adjoins the picturesque Mt Raoul and Cape Raoul State Reserve, a pristine wilderness location with sweeping ocean views.
“The estate is benefitted with significant volumes of hardwood timber, providing an array of diversified forestry opportunities, as well as the potential for biodiversity stewardship, carbon farming and tourism pursuits.”
Located at Stormlea on the Tasman Peninsula in Southern Tasmania, the property is close to the highly visited tourist destination of Port Arthur, as well as the Port of Hobart, with good access and a quality road network system throughout the property, underpinning future harvesting operations and efficient transport options.
The southern portion of the property adjoins the scenic Mt Raoul and Cape Raoul State Reserve, a unique wilderness location with unparalleled ocean views and potential for tourism pursuits (STCA).
“The majority of the estate has been declared as Private Timber Reserves, facilitating all forestry operations including the establishment, growing and harvesting of timber, including over 62,000* cubic metres of merchantable poles and 100,000* cubic metres of merchantable sawlog,” adds Mr. Whelan.
“The major economic activities in the Tasman Peninsula municipality include forestry, tourism and farming, and the region is world-renowned for its outstanding natural assets and scenic beauty, offering high standard recreation opportunities including bushwalking, fishing, boating and surfing,” adds Mr. Whelan.
