A beautiful rural lifestyle and income opportunity awaits
Nestled in the beautiful Monkerai hills, 20mins from the picturesque town of Dungog and 3hrs from Sydney is this versatile parcel of land comprises two expansive lots, one of approx. 718 acres, the other of 240 acres, delivering a substantial landholding of some 958 acres. With the parcels on separate titles, the opportunity exists for income return via sub-division STCA. The boundaries are fully fenced with post and wire, mostly in good order. With a mix of flat, gently undulating rising to steeper country, the acreage is approximately 50% cleared to grazing, the remainder stands of natural timber and native bush. With a carrying capacity of 70-90 head of cattle, the land is also suitable for horses and a variety of hobby farming and recreational pursuits. A seasonal creek and 9 spring-fed dams ensure an abundance of water for stock even in the harshest of times. Fire trails ideal for walking, horse riding or mountain bikes traverse the property which is also blessed with a wealth of native flora and fauna. A permaculture vegetable garden and 70 tree orchard irrigated from the large front dam will please those seeking a more self-sustainable lifestyle, while also delighting guests with home grown fresh fruit and vegetables.
The main home is a large Zincalum shed with wide, covered concrete patio. Offering comfortable living as is, the residence is perfect as weekend or temporary accommodation while building your dream home on any number of idyllic home sites that would maximise the stunning rural views. An interior comprises three spacious bedrooms embracing an expansive living and dining area with wood-fire heating and reverse-cycle air-conditioning. Meeting every need, the practical kitchen has electric cooking, ample bench and storage space and adjacent informal meal/second living space. A centrally located combined bathroom/laundry has a shower, vanity and toilet. Domestic water is via a 75,000lt concrete tank feeding off the shed roof.
The first of two income options, set away from the home and operating as a successful BnB is a very cute, light-filled, self-contained cottage of one queen-size bedroom with ensuite, separate open-plan lounge/dining and well-appointed kitchenette. While offering an excellent revenue stream if desired, the cabin would also make a perfect teenager’s retreat or extended family accommodation.
In keeping with the rise in popularity of the Tiny House Movement, the property also hosts a beautifully constructed and finished fully transportable Tiny House. There is ground floor living/kitchen/bathroom accommodation with shower, vanity and compostable toilet plus loft-style sleeping area with queen bed area. Wall heating and ceiling fans keep the interior cool or cosy year-round. A popular BnB accommodation venue, the Tiny House also lends itself to use as an additional family accommodation option.
The Highlands’ infrastructure includes: 18m x 18m Zincalum shed with concrete floor and spacious mezzanine level expansive workbench, 3 phase power and dual sliding doors at front and rear, offering excellent plant/machinery storage with space for stabling, feed and tack; single carport, timber cattle yards with steel race and crush facilitate stock movement. The property is serviced by mains power and has excellent mobile phone reception.


With its setting at the foothills of the Hunter Valley’s World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park, Monkerai is a popular tree-change destination and tourist mecca for those seeking to explore some of the most beautiful country Australia has to offer. The Highlands is a unique opportunity to purchase a quality landholding in a tightly-held, highly sought-after location. The property’s multiple accommodation and income stream options further enhance this property’s appeal
