Presenting this outstanding property situated a short 7klm drive to Mareeba CBD, one of the fastest growing rural towns in North Qld. And only a 50-minute drive to Smithfield Shopping Centre and Cairns Northern Beaches and an International Airport. Main highway access within a minute from the front gate and nestled in the heart of the gorgeous township of Biboohra with a primary school and service station and store.
Traditionally a family owned tobacco farm with prosperous river soil and boasting riparian rights to the beautiful Barron River (never runs dry). The property was also used for Lucerne growing. Multiple dwellings on this rural residential zoned property have been used for workers accommodation since the tobacco days and have been lovingly renovated over the past 10 years and cleverly developed into highly sought-after guest accommodation providing a welcome 'home away from home' to many visitors.
'Birds on Barron' is a truly unique property providing sanctuary to the abundant wildlife along with migratory guests to the region.
Farmhouse 1 has 4 large bedrooms, open plan dining, kitchen, and lounge with a large, covered patio area for outdoor entertainment. The flooring in the house consists of polished mixed timber hardwood and ceiling fans throughout the home providing comfortable living. The open plan lounge dining and kitchen provides ample room for up to 8 guests in the home.
House 2 is of Besser block construction with 3 bedrooms and a massive lounge area. Owners are currently renovating to include a modern kitchen and an executive bathroom complete with a soaker tub and a view to the back garden. There is also a covered patio area at the front. The home has ceiling fans throughout and can provide accommodation to 6 guests in the home.
Accommodation 3 is Barn style and provides comfortable living with 3 bedrooms, a huge open plan living, dining and kitchen area with timber floors throughout. The home has ceiling fans and is equipped to cater to 6 guests comfortably.
There is a massive, shared breezeway that separates this from a double story, dual level bedroom boutique style studio. There is a king bed and a double bed separated partially providing comfortable accommodation for 3 or 4 guests. The detached twin modern bathrooms are only a short 10 metre stroll through the undercover breezeway.

A very tidy fully air-conditioned demountable building offering 4 king single bedrooms each with its own ensuite and nearby boys BBQ shed for a coldie on a hot day.
Mareeba is a thriving fruit bowl with rentals impossible to find, making this beauty a great income earner for the right buyer.
There is a 14m X 21m machinery shed with concrete floor, a mezzanine, serviceable kitchen, and a decorative old boy's lounge area catching a great breeze through the warmer afternoons. Ideal for a caretaker's residence. There is provisions in place for a bathroom to be constructed in this building.
A 11.88 KW solar system fitted to the shed roof along with 2 batteries backup systems enables comfort during a blackout.
A new electric 3 phase pump, 700 metres of 100mm underground main line and spigots supplies 120psi to a travelling irrigator to feed small crops, gardens, and lawns throughout the drier months of the year. With a 30 megalitre water license this property has been a green oasis for self-sufficient campers and travellers to the region.
There are approvals in place to build a large dam to further increase the value and diversity of this property. Owners have received income from cattle, rentals and providing space for campers, caravanners and nomads throughout the winter.
A massive poly tank filled by the bore pump system or by rainwater feeds the housing and the gardens using a pressure pump system, maintaining good pressure and supply to all housing. Continuous gas hot water systems have also been fitted throughout the dwellings to ensure nobody runs out of hot water!
This property is ideal to continue to stream a steady income through rentals, share farming, horse agistment, cattle and so much more.
Quote from the owner 'On those days when the world is too much, I sit in the cool running water of the Barron River and let the problems wash away!' The river has easy access to enjoy with the added benefit of catching a fish for dinner. Riding a horse through the cool river is an unforgettable experience.
Plans for an entertainment venue have been shelved temporarily as time has run out for the owners to fit everything into 1 lifetime. So, their ideas along with the infrastructure tools and fittings required to expand further are available to the new purchaser at market value. There is so much more potential for this amazing working farm. Opportunities are endless for an energetic buyer.
