South East Queensland’s Shamrock Vale Station and its world-class Wagyu operation has been sold to a Brisbane-based buyer for $27 million.

Spanning 1,857 hectares in the Kerry Valley area of south east Queensland’s Scenic Rim on the Albert River, the property has fertile alluvial cultivated river flats running to undulating ridges and gullies, with plateaus of sheltered grazing.

The vendor, Robert McVicker, established a Wagyu herd under the Goshy brand that originated from the Japanese Tajima Fullblood genetics that are renowned for high marbling.

The sale included the Shamrock Vale Wagyu herd, the Goshu Wagyu herd, a commercial herd, and extensive plant and equipment.

Danny Bukowski from C1 Realty managed the sale.

Over eight years of ownership, McVicker made upgrades to Shamrock Vale Station with a focus on sustainability and farm management practices.

The property is watered by four irrigation licences, two water harvesting licences, 13 bores, four large lagoons for water storage, two dams and multiple smaller stock dams.

Around 215 hectares of the property is under irrigation, used in the production of cattle fodder.
