Come Out with the Crowd on Saturday 9th August.

Darra Station is on the estate, occupying the highest point between Brisbane and Goodna.

When we say the land is elevated, it is so. There is no swamps.

Those who can remember Taringa three years ago and to-day, can speak of how values have increased, the same thing will occur at Darra in less than that period.

We are offering the first division of the Estate at such prices to advertise the second portion.

The first comers will reap the benefit of being able to purchase a quarter-acre HOMESTEAD BLOCK from £5.

Terms: Ten Shillings Deposit, and Ten Shillings per month without interest. No rates to pay till 1914.

No limit to number of blocks to any one purchaser, quarter-acre to 30 acres may be had.

The future of this Estate is assured by its close proximity to the industrial town of Ipswich and the city of Brisbane.
