Queensland avocado and lime farm the perfect property salsa
A bluechip farm with over 4000 avocado and 1000 lime trees has hit the market for the first time ever, with room enough for all the other salsa ingredients too.
The large 36.5ha property is on the market for the first time since the farm founders created it 30 years ago, according to agent John Falvo of Mareeba Property Office.
Listed at $3.5 million, it comes with two houses — one of which is already set up as a “neat and tidy family home” with the other holding potential “as an income earner or worker’s accommodation”.

The property is on the market as the owners are making a lifestyle change.
“They’ve built it up from scratch and now they’re getting on with their age and they prefer to pass the work on. It’s time for some new blood,” Falvo told The Courier-Mail.
Interest is already coming in strong.
“There’s been good genuine interest. Avocados are the flavour of the year and have been for a few years now. There’s room for other crops as well.”
Add to that the property’s two cold room and huge packing shed with concrete floor, and it’s a dream come true for avocado lovers.
There is also tonnes of room for gear with a machinery shed, and the property also has three 5kw solar systems with optional electric or diesel driven pumps with filtration as well.
It also has a huge 120 Megalitre water allocation — that’s 120 million litres in case you were wondering — with a 20 megalitre dam as well.
“Thoughtfully developed, the property located 30 minutes west of Mareeba is established with under tree irrigation to 4000 plus Shepard avocado trees and 1000 plus lime trees. This farming enterprise is ready to be purchased as an immediate income earner.”
The property is an hour and half from Cairns CBD.
