I think that would be at the far bottom of the range. Send me a link and how far west of Lismore.

So I've just read this topic right through.
I'm looking at some land west of Lismore, about 80 acres, flat, at the confluence (is that the word?) of 2 seasonal creeks, heaps of tall timber, at the end of an all weather dirt road.
What do we think I should offer? $80,000 ?

Did you check for flooding?  Lismore is bad when it comes to floods  :(

If it has no house on it or or shed?
What is the soil like?
Is there a suitable site for a large dam?
A few questions.
Frost area or frost free?

That area is green and lush at present but it has some bad droughts and bloody floods
I lived in that area for a decade
Floods are a real pain so are mozzies, big abbo problems in places and work is iffy depending on what you do!

Better than the big smoke though!
The councils give blowins from the cities little respect and the planning building rules can really suck at times.
Don't get a bare block, way too many regulation nightmares regardless of the price!
Something established but run down will ease council nightmares.
Caravan on block with intention to build, you had better pull finger out and build within time limits or nightmares commence!
Been there done that,
Bloody expensive area, if its cheap there is a reason.
Was down that way just last week, very lush at present and looking really good.

Even flood free land can be a problem as most of the roads get cut, first year there I was flooded out for a week until the waters went down but then the bridge was gone and only access was to leave your vehicle on the side of the road and get an SES boat across until the waters were too low for that then just wait another week for a temporary bridge to be built
or
Make a 215km detour!

We were lucky we had a vehicle stuck in and another stuck out! most were not that lucky!

Schooling can be a problem with transport! neighbours highschool kids had to hit the road just before six am to get to school on time and was nearly six pm before they got home, more time in bus than school!
