A farm owner accused of shooting dead three of his neighbours and injuring a fourth over a long-standing dispute about a fence has been pictured - as new details emerge he was not even living at the property at the centre of the row.

Darryl Young, 59, allegedly shot dead Graham Tighe, 35, his mother Maree Schwarz and step-father Mervyn Schwarz, 71, at the boundary line of their property in Bogie, in the Whitsundays region of North Queensland, at 9am on Thursday. 

Mr Tighe's younger brother, Ross, was also allegedly shot in the stomach, but managed to escape to a ute and drive 40km to get help - while soaked in blood - before he was airlifted to Mackay Hospital.

Police took Young into custody and charged him with three counts of murder and one of attempted murder on Friday evening. 

He has been ordered to front Proserpine Magistrates Court on Monday. 

Photographs have since emerged of the farm owner with one of them showing him sitting with his family and smiling at the camera. 

Daily Mail Australia understands Young was not even living at the 7,700 hectare property at the centre of the dispute.

His primary place of residence was in fact just outside of Bowen - about 2.5 hours from his land in Bogie.

The home - sitting on a far more manageable 65 hectares - is at the back of a quiet dirt track and protected by a fence with a warning sign which reads 'admittance by invitation only'.

'No trespassing to all men, women, persons and entities including police, government, sheriff, bailiff, council, private investigators, corporations.'

The sign warns 'trespass damages' of at least $10,000 will be applicable 'upon one step onto this land'.

A nearby neighbour told Daily Mail Australia Young often kept to himself and appeared 'a quiet fellow'.

'He doesn't have very many visitors at all,' the neighbour said, making light of the extensive list of prohibited people according to his legal notice.

The person, who did not want to be identified, said Young had been spending less and less time at his primary residence in favour of his Bogie property.

'He's been out there fixing it up a lot lately,' the neighbour said.

'Everyone knows everyone out here but we like to all keep to ourselves. I knew him as a quiet, loner type.'

Over the years Young's place had acquired more and more junk, to the point where it now 'looks like a junkyard' from the street, according to neighbours.

Rusty old cars, farming machinery and random bits and pieces are littered across the front portion of the property and line the driveway to the tin shed at the back. His home is tucked around a corner, further out of the way of the main road.

Graham Tighe spent as few as three days with his newborn son before he was allegedly shot dead by Young. 

Greg Austen - who is Mrs Schwarz's brother-in-law - told Daily Mail Australia that Graham Tighe's infant son was hospitalised in Brisbane, 1,000km south of Bogie, soon after his birth three weeks ago 'because he was crook'. He was released this week. 

The little boy spent just three precious days with his father before the alleged shooting, Mr Austen said.

'I reckon Graham only spent about three days with his son,' Mr Austen said.  

'He's the first boy born that can carry on the Tighe family name.'

On July 11, Mr Tighe's wife wrote a gushing social media post to introduce their newborn to family friends - their toddler sat next to her new brother, beaming at the camera.

'Congratulations guys, so happy for your beautiful little family of four,' a friend wrote in the comments section.

Mr Tighe's partner and their children have been flown to Mackay by charity organisation Angel Flight so they can be with family and Mr Tighe's brother Ross as he recovers in hospital. 

Police allege that on Wednesday night, Young invited the Tighe-Schwarz family to meet him at the border of their farms early on Thursday.

However, he allegedly pulled out a gun and shot all four members, leaving Ross with a bullet wound to the stomach.
