Located in the tick free zone about 35km south of Hughenden, Peronne is described as being an excellent quality freehold property, with undulating chocolate and red pebbly self-mulching soils.

There are numerous creek systems, shelter belts and laneways with a mixture of open downs and timbered country, including gidyea, boree, bauhinia, whitewood, coolibah, and dogwood. Much of the gidyea country has been blade ploughed.

All of the paddocks are connected to a laneway system that runs back to the large steel cattle yards. The well equipped yards located towards the centre of the property have a roof over the working area.

The large five bedroom, two bathroom homestead has been extensively renovated in the past two years. There is also a single person donga located in the large garden area. Other improvements include a steel frame shed with solar panels on the roof.
