Oakview Nature Refuge is for sale

This could be your new home



We have massively reduced the price from $795,000 down to $695,000 of our 270 acre property as we want to move closer to our children and grandchildren.

This beautiful tranquil haven provides a peaceful home to a myriad of wildlife including Eastern Grey Kangaroos, Whiptail, Redneck, and Blackstripe Wallabies.  Bettongs, Bandicoots, Echidnas, Possum, Gliders and many other species. Many of the released Macropods visit daily and rest on the front lawn in the shade of the large mango tree with their Joeys.  Sitting in the screened breakfast room off the kitchen we can watch the birds splashing in the bird baths.  We have recorded over a hundred different bird species here.  The only sounds you will hear are the sounds of nature.  We are located 6 kilometres  from the Wide Bay Highway and it is a 40 minute drive to the large thriving country town of Gympie with all the facilities you could wish for.  Kilkivan is our local town at a distance of about 12 kilometres.  We have a reliable satellite internet with good speeds and there is also satellite TV.  The Wide Bay Creek runs through our property where you can watch the Platypus play.  Working from home is an option with a huge 7 bay shed connected to 3 phase power and with a concrete floor.
