Strath­more is set high on the land­scape with good un­du­la­tion and well-drained ter­rain.

Sit­u­ated 10km north-west of Cor­ri­gin, the prop­erty rep­re­sents an op­por­tu­nity to se­cure an out­stand­ing prop­erty in a tightly held area.

The soil types are de­fined by the orig­i­nal veg­e­ta­tion of white gum, York gum, tea tree, sheoak and Christ­mas tree, re­veal­ing a com­bi­na­tion of easy-work­ing sandy loams, gravel loams and clay loam with a small area of deep sand con­tain­ing a good sup­ply of un­der­ground wa­ter.

Al­though the cur­rent en­ter­prise has been to­tal crop­ping with ro­ta­tions of wheat, canola, bar­ley and lupins since 2007, the prop­erty in­fra­struc­ture is well suited to Merino sheep and fat lamb pro­duc­tion.

The prin­ci­ples of pro­fes­sional agro­nomics are dis­played through­out which is ob­vi­ous in its pre­sen­ta­tion.

The in­fra­struc­ture in­cludes a sub­di­vi­sion of 25 pad­docks fenced with well main­tained and re­cently erected six and seven-line sheep net­ting on steel posts.
