Slice of the Great Australian Bight on the table

16 September 2022

A 1,117ha South Australian farm occupying 4.6km of uninterrupted coastline along the Great Australian Bight has been listed for sale.

Running along Tyringa Beach, The Block consists of five freehold titles and has been owned by the Cash family since the 1980s.

Tyringa is located between Venus Bay and Streaky Bay on the Eyre Peninsula, roughly 45km from each, with the nearby Baird Bay providing local services.

Of the 1,117ha lot, 449ha is arable and currently cropped with barley, with the existing operation running 500 ewes with lambs at foot.

CBRE Agribusiness’s Phil Schell and Angus Bills are managing the sale campaign on behalf of the Cash family, with Expressions of Interest invited by November 3.

“We’re fortunate that we get to visit some amazing parts of South Australia in our line of work, but dragging ourselves away from The Block after visiting the site was a serious challenge,” Mr Schell said.

“It’s a stunning piece of land by anyone’s standards, with postcard-perfect views up and down nearly 5km of Great Australian Bight coastline.

“You could easily picture yourself camping in the sandhills, and spending some carefree days surfing and fishing at Tyringa Beach.”

Tyringa Road runs through the property, which has its own network of four-wheel-drive tracks.

“Opportunities to buy freehold coastal land of this quality and scale are few and far between,” Mr Bills added. “We’re expecting significant interest from investors and land bankers, with the scope to lease the arable land for around $60,000 per annum, while The Block could even lend itself to a glamping-style tourism development.”
