There is an exceptionally good balance of country, comprising of a large portion of coolibah flood plain/river frontage country associated with the Gilbert and Maxwell rivers.

The balance of the property runs back to sandy forest country.

Considerable new fencing have been erected in the past four years, including major laneway systems. The 45 main paddocks enable more intensive herd management and increased productivity.

Refuges have been constructed on the flood plain country for added protection during flood events.

The property is exceptionally well watered by dams, lagoons and water holes.

A significant amount of capital has been spent on water development during the past four years with the large majority of the watering points within a 2km grazing radius.

There is also a 6000 megalitre irrigation license on the Gilbert River.

Mustering takes just seven weeks from start to finish.

An extensive list of modern plant and equipment is also included in the sale.

Marketing agent Bruce Douglas, Ray White Rural, said Miranda supplied large numbers of cattle to Stanbroke's southern properties and Darling Downs feedlot during the past 24 years.

"During the past 10 years Miranda Downs has particularly seen a significant development of water, fences and yards," Mr Douglas said.

"This has enabled more intensive management of the herd and increased productivity through reduced mustering times, increased weaning rates and higher turnoff weights.

"Miranda is quality northern country with a reliable rainfall.

"The new owners will have the opportunity to further increase productivity."

Expressions of interest for Miranda Downs close on June 3.
