Location and Climate
Milligan Farms is located within the hinterland region of Noosa, an area well regarded as a premier reliable agricultural region of East Coast Australia due to a highly favourable climate pattern combined with exceptional soil.
Milligan Farms features a four-bedroom two-bathroom timber dwelling, a secondary four-bedroom two-bathroom timber dwelling, machinery and packing shed.
Milligan Farms benefits from practically unlimited water. The entirety of the farm has a fully interconnected irrigated water supply, with three pumps and two filter/fertigation sheds.
Milligan Farms features seven main irrigation dams, of which three are spring fed. The Property also features a permanent creek.
Due to the undulating nature of the property is operated through a series of terraces and roadways which direct and control water to catchment points. This reduces erosion and increases the volume of water captured whilst simultaneously allowing the avocado trees to be sufficiently watered. The terraces create a flat working platform with pickers, providing a safe environment for employees during the planting and harvesting of fruit and increases area of plantations.
Milligan Farms has been developed as the Sunshine Coast’s most productive Avocado orchard using terraces in a reliable rainfall area. Not only benefiting from an increase and well managed water capturing and deployment and systems, the property offers enormous development upside with the potential of a further 50* hectares of trees to be planted.
