A 54-hectare table grape operation located just out of Mildura in the Sunraysia district has been listed for sale.

The 180 Stewart Road, Red Cliffs property consists of three land parcels, each with its own irrigation infrastructure.

Trees in place range from five to 19 years in age. 46 hectares of the farm is planted to Crimson Seedless table grapes, with a further 6 hectares planted to Sweet Sapphire table grapes.

The Sunraysia region is currently the biggest table-grape-growing area in Australia with produce shipped domestically and overseas, including China.

In 2022, the region’s production reached around 115,000 boxes, which were exported or sold to the Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide markets.

The irrigation itself is comprised of three independent Grundfos and Southern Cross systems, while the property also has a Murray River water licence including 238ML of High-Security supply along with multiple Water Use Licences amounting to 443ML.

The property includes four homes, with the largest being a six-bedroom family residence, a 1,295 sqm parking shed with a loading dock and three cool rooms. Included is machinery shedding, office space and staff amenities.

Phill Schell, Angus Bills and David Goodfellow of CBRE have been appointed to manage the sale campaign.

“This Red Cliffs property is a well-maintained table grape operation, with a proven track record and quality improvements that would suit a commercial operation,” Mr Schell said.

“Australian grapes are in demand well beyond these shores. Almost all of the export table grapes in the country are grown in the Sunraysia region, which is set to help drive interest in this property.”

Offers in excess of $10 million are expected, with the expressions of interest campaign scheduled to end 16 November.
