Festival winery for sale
THE famous Dingo Creek winery, just south of Gympie and home of the Dingo Creek Wine, Jazz and Blues festival, is up for sale, for $795,000.
Hinternoosa agent Jim Ennis announced the sale on the internet, describing the property as offering "quality lifestyle with unlimited commercial potential".
The 10.5ha site is described as "large, fully fenced, usable acreage with high-producing vineyards, large dam, creek, bush and paddocks".
The house is described as "350sq m under one roof including four large bedrooms, huge living areas, enormous country kitchen and a fully licensed commercial kitchen geared to feeding the masses".
The home is raised to accommodate further development downstairs, with this said to be needed "to make the most of your vineyard's commercial kitchen and newly developed serving and dining areas".
The winery has been described as one of the prettiest on the Sunshine Coast.
Big band drummer John Morrison says the annual festival, a fundraiser for SIDS and Kids Queensland, is a uniquely informal and friendly jazz gathering, where you can meet your favourite musicians at the breakfast barbie.
"It's out of the box. I wouldn't miss it. There's nothing like it," he said.
