Crofting
« on: January 21, 2016, 11:20:50 pm »

To my great dismay one of my favourite get away spots is closing down, Landcruiser Mountain Park in QLD.

One interesting take the new owners are proposing is Crofting. Details can be found here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I'm not affiliated with them in any way shape or form, but having been there and practising bushcraft in peace and quiet, I cannot recommend the place any higher.

Not for me as I already own land, but interesting.

~$12k (+ maintenance) for permanent access to a block of land, could work but the blocks are small so in that regard no different to being in town. Like all things it might depend on who else moves in, at least where I am the neighbours are 500M away so if we didn't get along we could just ignore each other (not the case thankfully).

Did anyone else hear that this went totally belly up and people lost their $$ that they had put into it?  I'm inclined to believe it as I saw the property as a whole offered for sale just the other day.  I certainly wouldn't want to buy it if there are people out there thinking they had paid for the right to camp on it.

I'm not surprised. It seems that the web site has gone as well.

Ok. So what is crofting? Some sort of pay to share a large block on one title? Any idea what legal structure was anticipated? And was there a goal or some sort of guidelines about what the organisers were hoping the group would achieve? or just lots of people with a vaguely similar idea and direction?

From their website when it was promoting this - they seemed to imply that 'crofting' was a legal structure where you were buying the right to occupy a specific area of land.  They said that you could camp on your block and use the bushland and other communal facilities as part of your purchase.  It did not give the right to build or install infrastructure.  That was what it looked like to me.....
