Ray White Rural Queensland principal Bruce Douglas facilitated the sale which was "the highest under the hammer price across Ray White this year", a company statement said.

"Interest came almost exclusively from larger grazier families around Queensland," Mr Douglas said. "It's good cattle country and very tightly held, properties don't come up very often in the area so buyers jumped on it."
