Calling all prospectors! Own a slice of history in the WA Goldfields. Owner-Finance available subject to conditions.


This is a rare opportunity to purchase two freehold lots in the WA Goldfields town of Kookynie.

Located a stone's throw from the historic Grand Hotel and just off the sealed road into town, these blocks would be the perfect place to set up a prospecting base. Picturesque Niagara Dam is only 10km down the road and Menzies and Leonora are only 65km away when you need to stock up on supplies.

Both blocks have been professionally surveyed and pegged and one has a large (150m2) council approved shed on a concrete slab that is 80% complete (some roofing sheets, flashing and gutters still to be fitted). The shed is located on the south-east corner of Lot 85 (26 Cumberland Street). Please see the photos for more details.

With a total land area of 2024m2 (1/2 acre) over two 1012m2 (1/4 acre) blocks, you'll have plenty of space to spread out and create your dream getaway.

Attractively priced to sell and all reasonable offers will be considered. There is currently a camper trailer and enclosed storage trailer on site that can be purchased as part of the sale (see pictures).

FAQs based on enquiries received:

Q: Are there power / water / sewage connections?
A: No. Most residents run a generator / solar setup, obtain potable water from bores and have septic tanks installed.

Q: Can I inspect the property?
A: You are welcome to pass through town and inspect. The owner is not usually there and will generally not travel out there for inspections. The land and shed are located on the bitumen road into town from Goldfields Highway. It is the last property on the right before the roundabout.

Q: I want to buy the property but I need to obtain finance first, can you wait for that to happen?
A: You are unlikely to find a financial institution that is willing to lend money for land in Kookynie. The owner will consider financing buyers who have a significant deposit that they can transfer (half or more of the property value).

Q: How much are the rates?
A: Rates paid for the 2020/2021 financial year were $469.34 per block.

Q: How much will settlement be?
A: If you use the same settlement agent as the owner, settlement fees will be approximately $2000.

Q: I've made a verbal / email / SMS / carrier pigeon offer. Does that mean the owner is not able to consider other offers made?
A: No. A verbal offer is the first step in the process. An offer will only become exclusive and no other offers considered once an official Offer & Acceptance process has taken place which will be handled by the owner's settlement agent.

Q: Will you sell the blocks separately?
A: This depends on the offers received. Please bear in mind that most of the value of the property is in the shed / concrete slab, therefore the price for Lot 85 / 26 Cumberland Street will be commensurate with this.
