Achacha – Beautiful healthy property – Fabulous regional lifestyle

How about a healthy lifestyle on a beautiful property suitable for a group or extended family growing organic Achacha? As an added bonus the farm is conveniently located only 30 minutes drive from the thriving regional centre of Townsville.

A piece of paradise

This farm is genuinely a piece of paradise with 123 hectares of flat land and beautiful views to Mt Elliott. Highly productive it is planted with 16,000 Achacha trees, 3000 African Mahogany windbreak trees, along with mangoes and coconuts. The annual Achacha harvest is now around 300 tonnes and the fruit is growing in popularity every year as more of us encounter this bright, tangy and delicious summer fruit.

 A flock of chickens live in their own solar powered chicken caravan while 20 lucky agistment horses are used for plantation weed control.

Add to that an abundant water supply and certified biodynamic organic farm practises that have the farm healthy, green, lush and highly productive without pesticides or other harmful chemicals.  A creek also runs through the property and Cromarty Wetlands are on one side and the Wongaloo Wetlands a few kms to the north.

Thriving regional centre

The current farm owners Bruce and Helen Hill  used to be Sydney siders but both say they have fallen in love with the regional lifestyle and climate. Only thirty minutes drive away via the Bruce Highway is the thriving dynamic regional centre of Townsville with facilities for all the family. Townsville has an abundance of schools, the world-renowned James Cook university, comprehensive medical and dental services, a world class teaching hospital, multiple industries and a diverse economy.

A thriving arts scene includes galleries, performing arts and cinemas. Sports fans are well catered for with the new state of the art multi-purpose stadium.

Add an airport with direct regular flights to Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney and Townsville has all that you or your family are likely to need.
