Business Potential

This property is ideal for eco tourism or other uses.

Eco Tourism/Nature Resort

There is potential for more cabins/accommodation for:

  • Bird watching
  • Bush walkers
  • Schools students
  • Overseas tourists

Recreational Park

It is an ideal venue for 4WDriving or trail motorcycling with camping areas included. Other nearby properties have already invested (and are successfully operating) in this growth market. Both activities could utilize the creek flats for camping/cabins plus use the high areas for camping/cabins near to where the dams are located.

Horse Riding/Rural Retreat/Farm Stay

These uses could fit in well with excellent riding trails and tracks and stunning views from the high ground. For the non riders and the more mature, the use of 4 wheeler motorbikes could also be an option using the same trails and tracks as the horses. These activities would still allow for grazing of cattle, an ideal lifestyle.

Swap/Exchange

The owners are prepared to swap or exchange for other real estate in or near the Lismore area (for family reasons). A small acreage would be preferable.
