Much of our work is on properties for what we call GreenChangers, CityEscapists and EcoPreneurs. Every now and again we meet a client and their property and our imagination runs wild, our hearts soar, careful thought has gone in to every detail and we highly rate it as ecoproperty®. Welcome to the Emu Hive & Resort; a fabulous ecotourism business and a wonderful lifestyle. Plus, brimming with options for you to explore.

The property is 80 acres with 2 dwellings and worker’s accommodation with all design, materials, systems and infrastructure well researched and implemented to the highest quality.

You may want all of this for yourself as a wonderful eco rural retreat and do your own thing. The option is also offered to continue the established very successful ecotourism business with accommodation and services to guests. Opportunity to further develop over time to expand the business and/or the Emu farm with support and resources. The businesses are for sale as additional options if of interest so please contact us for the details.

Currently configured as a 2 bedroom yurt-style lodge for the Owner/Manager and a 3 bedroom luxurious yurt-style lodge providing a well-established premium accommodation business. For any larger families, groups or multi-generational buying this could easily be a family property. There are additional accommodation options to consider if this of interest.

Don’t get confused by the photos. Yes, both homes have a fabulous Spa with sun/shade cover and views out over the farm to the bushland. And to the stunning skies at night.

What we love is that it is a home with everything you need already done; all you need to do is bring your own passions, interests and way of life to one of the most interesting parts of Australia.

What a place for children. So much room to roam and grow. Bushland, creek, swimming holes, space, fresh air. The school bus to Coonabarabran is on the main road. Plenty of room for a couple of ponies or other pets of choice.

Dedicated roads have been built and fenced to enable free walking, or driving via golf carts, to explore bush walks, the creek, or just enjoy the Emus, the farm and the extensive bird life.

Excellent sheds, storage and workspace for any home-based business. Work from home requirements with highest standard internet connection.

The 80 acres consists of 5 paddocks crafted with Natural Sequence Farming using swales and soil management to create a healthy, vibrant mix of grasses and drought-proof farm. Excellent fencing all round, and laneways for easy management.

With 7.5 Km of 1.9m exclusion fencing you could farm the animals of your choice or continue with the Emu farm.

Regardless of your choices, you will enjoy serenity, privacy, security and all-weather access without compromise; 2.7 km sealed road access with electric security gates. Fully private with only you and your guests for the entire property.

Privacy is a premium here; secure access, 100% visual privacy, invisible from the main road, and no noise.

As the world moves to being powered by renewables, you can enjoy the future right now in this all-electric home with your own off grid power system (with backups all in place). Underground water and power infrastructure, and sewage connection.

The 2 homes are nestled in the woodlands with spectacular views of the 80 acres property. The remote and rustic landscape, a luxurious yet serene setting has been richly rewarded to become an excellent business.

Water here is the highest quality. 2.5 Km creek frontage (Shawn’s Creek), 4 Dams. Underground pipes, irrigation, water troughs are everywhere and all part of the well thought out infrastructure for now, and any future developments. Spring water is sandstone filtered pure water pumped up 30 metres from an ancient aquifer below the property. No additional filtering is needed nor are any chemicals added. The taste is impressive and super fresh.

Anyone wanting to consider ‘paddock to plate’ for guests, or convert to organic farming, or to grow their own vegetables, there is a ‘market garden’ paddock the chooks are currently enjoying. Bees and honey are already established. One of the laneways would be perfect for orchard plantings. The worker’s accommodation ideal for seasonal workers or to extend for Glamping and lower cost accommodation. Systems have been established so that water and power will provide expansion of accommodation and/or farming.

As a fully off grid Eco Resort sustainability is a focus so guests enjoy impactful, comfortable and memorable experiences that are easy on the environment.

Property tours can either be explored on foot or in battery-powered golf carts. A highlight for guests provides an intimate firsthand, unique encounter with the resident hand-raised Emus. Pat, cuddle, feed them or just watch them grazing or swimming. Even egg collection at the right time of year – spectacular in its own right.

Birdlife is also a major attraction of the property with over 100 species including migratory birds, Blue Wrens, Kestrels, Eagles, Herons, King Parrots, Musk Lorikeets and several Rosella species.

The current Eco Resort business includes private observatory stargazing, Emu safari experiences and geological wonders.

This is ecotourism at its best.
