Property Overview

Ideally situated along Lake Sorell, Dogs Head offers secluded fishing, hunting, lifestyle or future ecotourism development opportunities. The Property features five (5) freehold titles ideally wedged between the Lake and Tunbridge Tire Road. With an array of natural wonders internal and external to the Property, the eventual buyer has multiple opportunities to develop this secluded property into a world class destination for VIPs, sport fishermen and hunters, or to maintain the property for the vendor's own vision or interest. 11 kilometres (6.89 miles) of private water frontage is just one of the key features to this historic Property. Sitting hidden within the Property is the remnants of Thomas Meaghers cottage - famous Irish political convict exiled to Van Demons Land (now Tasmania) in 1849. The Property features a Private Forestry Overlay allowing continued commercial harvest whilst also featuring approximately 524.88 acres of largely open grassland area (previously used for sheep grazing) but also perfect for the keen weekend hunter.
