It is the second major grow farm raid in Queensland this month, after police raided a property in Gungaloon on the Fraser Coast, on November 7.
Detectives estimate the drugs in Rosedale have a combined street value of approximately $68.5 million.
All six of the people arrested, who are aged between 27 and 40, have been charged with multiple drug offences and possession.
They have all been denied bail and will appear before court.
Police alleged two of the people arrested are illegal citizens of Australia, and have referred the case to Australian Border Force.
Detective Inspector Brad Phelps said detectives were looking into links between Queensland grow farms.
"This is the seventh farm identified and disrupted this year," Phelps said.
"We know that these groups operate within a sophisticated national network of production and supply, and we will continue to work through these connections as part of ongoing investigations.
"These groups might be sophisticated but we know how they operate, and we remain committed to removing illicit drugs from our communities."
