  • Rare opportunity to own a piece of Southern Tasmania's pristine wilderness.
  • Timber, tourism, and conservation prospects in a stunning natural setting.

A Southern Tasmanian Forest is now up for grabs, if you can afford it.

Colliers’ Agribusiness national director, Duncan McCulloch, and @realty sales associate, Adrian Whelan, have been tasked with selling one of Southern Tasmania’s largest privately owned native forests.

Unblemished wilderness location with breathtaking maritime landscapes

Spanning a whopping 936.04 hectares and comprising 10 Certificates, the Black Mountain Estate sits on the immaculate Tasman Peninsula, roughly 50 linear kilometres south of Hobart in Stormlea.

This marks the first time the estate is available on the market after over 28 years of family ownership.

“Black Mountain Estate is situated at Stormlea on the Tasman Peninsula in Southern Tasmania and adjoins the picturesque Mt Raoul and Cape Raoul State Reserve, a pristine wilderness location with sweeping ocean views,” said McCulloch.

“The estate is benefitted with significant volumes of hardwood timber, providing an array of diversified forestry opportunities, as well as the potential for biodiversity stewardship, carbon farming and tourism pursuits.”

Forestry and tourism opportunities abound

The property is near two high-traffic tourist spots, Port Arthur and the Port of Hobart. It also has ample access and quality road infrastructure throughout the property, supporting future timber harvesting operations.

The southmost section of the estate adjoins the picturesque Mt Raoul and Cape Raoul State Reserve, a one-of-a-kind natural expanse with enchanting ocean vistas, brimming with potential for future tourism-related ventures, subject to council approval.

“The majority of the estate has been declared as Private Timber Reserves, facilitating all forestry operations including the establishment, growing and harvesting of timber, including over 62,000 cubic metres of merchantable poles and 100,000 cubic metres of merchantable sawlog,” said Whelan.

“The major economic activities in the Tasman Peninsula municipality include forestry, tourism, and farming, and the region is world-renowned for its outstanding natural assets and scenic beauty, offering high standard recreation opportunities including bushwalking, fishing, boating and surfing.”

The private forest is on offer through international expression of interest, which closes on 16 November 2023 at 4 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT).
