Pizza yurt with a side of llamas

first_img FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK The “pizza yurt” is not so much a yurt but it’s still a great spot to make pizzas. The Dayboro Cottages & Llama Walks are for sale an hour northwest of Brisbane. Pictures: Realestate.com.auA stunning property with a side hustle of llamas and a pizza yurt has hit the market in Brisbane’s north.Made up of five luxury cottages, a herd of llamas, a “pizza yurt” and 15.38 hectares in which to roam, plus a house currently used as a manager’s residence, the property brings home the bacon so to speak, with triple income streams.Not only do the cottages get rented out to tourists and visitors, but there was also the llama walk and seven fenced paddocks, some of which were rented out for cattle to graze.Real estate agent Vicki Pain of Ray White Dayboro said it was a unique offering, in a good spot, offering entertainment and accommodation options for those wanting to get away to the Brisbane Hinterland.“The previous owners set up Llama walk,” Ms Pain said. “They originally bought the top house and then purchased the bottom title and built the cabins. The views from up there are just stunning.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p432p432p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

It has a four star rating from the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, as well as a 4.5 rating on Tripadvisor. “It’s good for someone looking for a change of lifestyle. It’s an hour’s drive to the city, an hour to the airport and close enough for families to come out,” Ms Pain said.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus15 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market15 hours agoThe business has a good record on Tripadvisor.One of its sources of visitors was its location close to popular venues like Ocean View — an award-winning winery, while a popular wedding venue Glengariff Estate was just opposite the property.“It services a lot of those who come up, because we’ve got wedding venues up here with not enough accommodation for guests. The cabins are quite popular. We do get weekend people (too).”center_img Agisted cattle use the fenced paddocks too. Apart from the llamas, there were also alpacas and agisted cattle using the pastures. The property also has a chook house, large storage shed and stable, with a spring fed dam and tank water.Ms Pain said a separate property next door was also for sale — a hilltop farm house used by the owners. The floors of the cottages are polished and each has barbecue facilities.Each cottage has a kitchenette, laundry facilities, an ensuite — one of which also has a spa bath — raked ceilings, polished floors and large balconies looking out over a panorama of the Dayboro Valley with the D’Aguilar range in the distance. Even the two-bedroom manager’s residence has a large deck and the same jawdropping views.“Set well back from the road these bushland retreats offer perfect peace broken only by the sounds of the birds,” was how it was listed. The balconies of the five cottages offer stunning views across the Dayboro Valley.last_img read more

Crushing loss for Windies against New Zealand in Test match

first_imgWest Indies vs New Zealand A spineless batting effort sent the West Indies crashing to an innings and 67-run defeat to New Zealand, as the Caribbean side tamely conceded the opening Test inside four days early Monday.Entering the penultimate day at the Basin Reserve brimming with confidence following an encouraging display on Sunday, West Indies’ enterprise deserted them as they collapsed from a promising 214 for two overnight to 319 all out in their second innings.They were 231 for no further loss inside the first half-hour but dramatically lost their last eight wickets for 88 runs, to be bowled out about 50 minutes after lunch.Opener and vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite, unbeaten overnight on 79, top-scored with 91 while Shai Hope moved from 24 at the start to 37, but none of the Windies batsmen could muster the required commitment to stretch the contest into the fifth day.Matt Henry added another scalp to end with three for 57 but it was his fellow seamers Colin de Grandhomme (2-40), Trent Boult (2-87) and Neil Wagner (2-102) who scythed through the middle and lower order to set up the comprehensive win.The defeat was the seventh in 11 Tests on New Zealand soil for West Indies inside the last 17 years, and their third innings loss in four defeats straight defeats in Wellington, dating back to 1999.For New Zealand, the win gave them a precious 1-0 lead in the two-match series, ensuring they extended their record of not having lost a series to the Windies at home in 22 yearslast_img read more
