Rivermead Estate is rich in history; its narrative dating back many years. From its early agricultural prosperity, through to its deeply ingrained horse culture, Rivermead Estate has many a story to tell.
Originally a thriving dairy farm and arrowroot producer, Rivermead Estate formed part of the local Cobb & Co route which travelled from the Gold Coast to Beaudesert in the late nineteenth century. A versatile property, even in its early days, the estate was also a well-known place for neighbours to gather, hosting a myriad of social functions and local cricket games over the years.
Moving forward to the mid-late 1900s, and the first two polo fields were established at Rivermead Estate, alongside a macadamia plantation and new abode, aptly named Casa Caballo (Horse House). As legend has it, this new house may have replaced the original home on the property, which is said to have been lifted by a mini tornado and swept to its current position on Caballo Road.
Today, as you arrive at Rivermead Estate, you are greeted by the majestic plantation-style home which was originally built in 1990 to replace Casa Caballo as the main residence and has since been beautifully renovated to accommodate and entertain friends, family, sporting teams, clients and parties alike.
