Spare a thought for me, I was looking at a 36 acre block, all fenced paddocks and a house and shed, 1.6million. Needless to say I didn't buy it. Prices are falling here but 15 years ago that block would have been $250,000. We had a mining boom here like no one has seen before and about 1,000,000 people came with it so house prices went through the roof. Boom went bust but land prices still scary.

I went for a drive today to check out a back entrance to the place and surprising the number of driveways and houses hidden going off into the bush.

Redgully I know the effect the mines and gas fields have had on real estate in the towns west of here.

Ken, Congrats!!! Hope you enjoy the property! New ventures, new adventures!
Curious (with it being a former mine) if you have to worry about any lingering environmental impacts? Some of my family's homeplaces back in West Virginia (US) had streams that were impacted by local coal mines (shut down years earlier), so I was just curious if you have to worry about that

Boondocks, little to worry about, no chemicals used, mostly water used to extract the alluvial tin. There are some deep shafts but tend to be in areas that are of little interest to the cattle but I will fence them off. They may be of interest in a small scale tourist venture but that will be up to my daughter to pursue if she desires, maybe a stopping point with some guided trail rides.
