Property highlights
Bet Bet Farm is situated on the banks of the Bet Bet creek at Bet Bet Victoria, home to mixed family farming for generations. The property had a dairy, chook pens for egg production, pigs, horses and sheep. Farming of this land continues today. This land is great fattening country on the river flats for sheep horses or your choice of animal.
Unique special location
A short walk from the house and you are walking along the banks of the creek where there is water year round. Sit and listen to the Kookaburras and other birds (blue wrens, willy wagtails, magpies, etc), watch wedge tail eagles soar above or drop a line in the creek with your chance to catch a fish (redfin, yellow belly and carp). This section of creek is also home to platypus which are an amazing creature to sit and observe.
Stately red gums border the dam an attraction for local koalas. Goat moths lay their eggs at the base of the redgums (bardi grubs) and the larvae spend most of their life underground before coming to the surface and flying off (generally on a warm evening in March) to start the cycle all over again. A unique insect. Echidna’s also frequent this area in search of food.
Geography
Close to Maryborough and Dunolly. In the School bus zone, a short walk to the bus stop. The property neighbors the historic Bet Bet cricket ground, a beautiful and unique spot for a lovely walk or fun family activity in the open space.
House
Bet Bet farm has been in the family for several generations and this is a unique opportunity to acquire this historic property.
The house has been home to many large family gatherings in particular at Christmas time and other key festive family milestones.
The house would respond well to you putting your own touches to it and making it your home.
Sit by either of the open fires and boil the kettle on the wood stove.
View the gum trees lining the creek and dam from the kitchen or sun room.
Shearing Shed
The shearing shed is still in use today and has seen many sheep move through it over the years. Merino sheep have been the predominant breed but also cross bred sheep have been run and shorn on the property.
Other shedding also on the property for chooks, hay and machinery.
Land
The land around the house and sheds is very fertile land that currently grows pasture for stock grazing. Run a few sheep or other animals right out your back door.
