Perfect for Nature Lovers! This property is 9ha of pristine coastal scrub & woodland overlooking a large (Ramsar-listed) coastal lagoon and is an island of private land completely surrounded by the 2172 ha of Logan Lagoon Conservation Area. There is no passing traffic, except for the many Bennetts Wallabies. The block has recorded 48 native bird species, 88 native plant species and a rich mammal fauna, including Eastern Pygmy-possums and New Holland Mice.
The dwelling is a 2-bedroom brick house (built 1984) on a low rise overlooking the lagoon. The bathroom include shower, bath, toilet; with a 2nd toilet off the laundry). The house is off the grid (no electricity supply from power lines), but has telefone connection, gas stove, open fireplace, solar hot water service and recently-serviced diesel generator, & recently installed photovoltaic panels, feeding into a large battery bank. There are the necessary outbuildings (generator shed, large garage, fenced orchard & vegies). This is a most reluctant sale by the current owner. The house and land are being sold WIWO (ie. including furniture, appliances, crockery, cookware etc.) and may include a 1991 Suzuki Sierra 4WD.
Directions: The islandís second town (Lady Barron) is only 7 km away on all-weather roads & tracks. Flinders Island is serviced by daily commercial flights from Launceston and (3-5 days a week) from Essendon airport. There are also ferries from Tasmania and Victoria. The island has a high quality hospital and retirement home, a school to lower secondary, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and a bakery, pubs, even vineyards, local meats and seafood in abundance (straight off the crayfishing boats). Its beaches are the stuff of legends. The Flinders community is diverse, warm & welcoming.
