That were in Tassie I’d consider it! Maybe Booby fleeing an imaginary ice age might consider it?

Some huge maintenance bills in the pipe line there I'd say.

A charity should buy it and provide free housing for asylum seekers

Some houses are actually rented. Could be a nice little earner.

If I had the money I'd buy immediately. I just converted hectares to declares, which is our measurement unit for land, and it's 140 decares, which is huge. And the lake?

That would be good for a group of people who like self sufficiency. The buildings are already built. I'm looking for about 10 acres in East TX to retire on.

What are the critters like in that area? From what I've heard, half the animals there are deadly or poisonous. Is it hype or not?

Ya'll are probably all told that all Texans ride their horses to work and carry a six gun. Most rumors are only half right.

Latest word is that the 'town' has been sold. Yes, the animals here can be very poisonous. Snakes and spiders (not forgetting the 'drop bears.') Out where that Town (Allies Creek ) is there would be nasty bastard snakes, but they are just as scared of us as we are of them. To get bitten, you'd have to have either deliberately provoked it or accidentally stood on it. To get bitten by a spider (red back one is a killer) again, you would have to be very stupid or just unluckly. Not all bites, in fact, few, result in death if treated properly and swiftly enough.

I was told, by a mate who lived in an area infested with brown and red bellied black snakes that most people who die from snake bite are those who tried to kill a snake. I went to visit her and hubby for a week but other people refused to come to the property and rented motel rooms in the town :bgrin

"A hype"? You're joking, right? In Australia there's not even a single thing that don't want to kill you. Even kangaroos will often engage you.

He got far too close to a stingray which then barbed him in the chest. He got way too cocky.

Heart attack or something I remember. RIP but still we don't have those around here. It's a metaphor when I'm saying something's always waiting on ya. It's often people playing around in foreign territory *unknown waters*
