Major South Australian River Murray Irrigation Development Opportunity

Approx 595 Hectares (1,470 Acres) - Forster via Walker Flat

Situated at Forster just upstream from Walker Flat amid the renowned irrigation areas of Purnong, Caurnamont, Nildottie and Swan Reach and only approximately 120 kilometres from Adelaide
The property boasts approximately 455 hectares of easy working well drained deep sandy loam soils.
A 10 inch PVC mainline runs from the River Murray connected lagoon on the property approximately 4.5 kilometres to the East and with four 10 inch offshoot lines delivers water supply to 7 pivot centres.
This easily managed land with low undulations gently rises from the River Murray to the East
A special feature of this property is the ease of pumping and pump maintenance with easy access to water supply and no cliffs to endure. Current pumping of River Murray water to the property is via a 3 phase 100hp Hydro-Titan Pump and booster 3 phase 60hp Southern Cross inline pump.
This property could ideally suit in demand crops such as Almonds to satisfy the growing Almond market or other major export irrigation crops.
The land has previously grown potato and onion crops under irrigation and more recently dryland cropping of lupins, peas, wheat, barley & triticale.
Zero till and best farming practices have been used on this property using agronomist advice which has maximised the soil health and minimised compaction.
The property is well served with shedding with an all steel shed of approximately size of 30m x 25m and a further all steel Implement Shed of approximately 30m x 9m both with rainwater capture and storage. Two tanks on the property are also connected to River water supply line.
Eye line to Telstra tower from the property enables excellent mobile coverage
Mainline across Hunter Highway is protected in a concrete sleeve and there are currently no Telstra or media cables on this boundary
Situated on 4 sections being Allotment 3 and Sections 90, 89 and 87 in the Hundred of Forster.

This property represents a unique opportunity to secure this large irrigation holding with easily managed quality soils.
