Prized Kia Ora property listed for sale

CBRE Agribusiness has been appointed to market one of Australia’s largest irrigated and dryland cropping enterprises, Kia Ora.

The property in Queensland’s south-west region, just five lineal kilometres from St George, spans 18,783 hectares. It includes approximately 8,898 hectares of highly developed flood irrigation and 902 hectares of dryland cultivation.

Kia Ora typically carries out a combination of irrigated and dryland cotton production and non-irrigated cropping including wheat, sorghum and chickpeas. Other activities include the grazing of cattle on an opportunity basis, with the potential for development of a further 3,525 hectares of arable land.

CBRE’s Danny Thomas, who is steering the campaign with Duncan McCulloch, said: “The standard of development and operational performance of Kia Ora is exceptional, and its listing provides buyers with an unparalleled opportunity to acquire a large-scale enterprise on a ‘walk in, walk out’ basis.”

“The current owners have continually invested in the property’s operational infrastructure and technological developments to enhance on-farm productivity. Incoming purchasers can therefore be assured they are being offered a highly-developed, world class asset,” Mr Thomas added.
