River­bends is 42km north-west of Ko­jonup and has frontage to the Arthur River on its eastern side.

The prop­erty has been dig­i­tally mapped, with abut 902ha con­sid­ered crop­pable with the re­main­der be­ing graz­ing and ar­eas of tree plan­ta­tion.

The coun­try is un­du­lat­ing with the soil types be­ing mainly medium grav­elly loams and some lighter sandy loams.

These lighter loams are where the ma­jor­ity of the plan­ta­tion trees have been planted.

Orig­i­nal veg­e­ta­tion for the area is wan­doo, jam, red gum, river gum and sheoak.

There are 23 main pad­docks and the prop­erty is fully de­vel­oped with the fenc­ing in fair to av­er­age con­di­tion.

Stock wa­ter sup­ply comes from 20 dams and three soaks and is con­sid­ered very re­li­able.

Av­er­age an­nual rain­fall is 550mm.

Var­i­ous rain­wa­ter tanks pro­vide an ad­e­quate sup­ply of wa­ter for spray­ing and do­mes­tic use.

The main home­stead is com­fort­able and over­looks the river. It is con­structed of weath­er­board and brick with a new tin roof and has four bed­rooms, kitchen, lounge, of­fice and laun­dry and has a ve­randa on four sides.

The sec­ond res­i­dence is a three-bed­room trans­portable, con­structed of Hardi­board with a tin roof.

This is in good con­di­tion and would be suit­able for staff or ex­tra fam­ily/friends.

In­fra­struc­ture in­cludes a four-stand shear­ing shed with new steel sheep/cat­tle yards and a work­ing ca­pac­ity of 1500 head (sheep).

Var­i­ous si­los in­clude three 500 bushels, a 200 bushel silo and a 2500 bushel, all with a cone base.

The prop­erty has plenty of sheds of vary­ing sizes.

The ven­dors have been con­cen­trat­ing on sheep and wool pro­duc­tion for the past few years with a min­i­mum of crop­ping.
