PLANS are underway to market the noted large-scale Western Queensland property Portland Downs. Its owner Dutch-owned, Brisbane headquartered company GP Cattle, is also planning to sell its impressive Condamine property Cotswold which had been used to background cattle bred on Portland.

Rural property agent Dick Allpass, Elders, said both Portland and Cotswold were expected to be marketed in June.

“These are two very highly regarded properties that will generate plenty of attention,” Mr Allpass said.

“Portland, although now developed as a cattle breeding property, is synonymous with the Merino industry and Cotswold is a very impressive farming aggregation with irrigation on the Condamine River.” 

Located between Isisford and Ilfracombe, Portland covers 99,957-hectare (247,000 acres) and had been running 6000 breeders. In its heyday it ran 60,000-plus sheep
