Spyglass Beef Research Facility covers 38,300 hectares. It is approximately 110 kilometres north of Charters Towers on the Gregory Development Road and 130 kilometres west of Townsville via the Hervey's Range Road.

It has an estimated carrying capacity of up to 3,500 adult equivalent cattle and has 13 kilometers of Burdekin River frontage.

This facility plays a leading role into research to advance tropical and subtropical beef production and ecosystem management, as well as hosting development, extension, education and training programs. These are vital for the future profitability and sustainability of Queensland’s beef industry.

Its location in the Charters Towers district is typical of the extensive breeding systems in North Queensland. This recognises the breeding end of the supply chain as being critical to the overall productivity and profitability of individual beef businesses and the industry overall. The location is also typical of extensive grazing lands in a key reef catchment.
