Boree Park, a 2200-acre cot­ton and crop­ping prop­erty in south-cen­tral New South Wales, is cur­rently up for sale with planted cot­ton ready to go.

Listed on our sis­ter site Far­ by Rawl­in­son & Brown Real Es­tate, Boree Park boasts 730 acres of land al­ready laid out for row crop ir­ri­ga­tion with a wa­ter re­cy­cling chan­nel sys­tem.

A fur­ther 185 acres can be set up for ex­tra ir­ri­ga­tion, plus 87 acres of the prop­erty are laid out as a border check. A plan for the en­tire farm was pre­pared by PHL Sur­vey­ors.

The NSW prop­erty comes with 1448 me­gal­itres of gen­eral se­cu­rity wa­ter en­ti­tle­ments, and 636 me­gal­itres of his­tory of use wa­ter rights.

The agents say ir­ri­ga­tion wa­ter is sup­plied to the prop­erty via three me­ters from the Mur­rumbidgee Ir­ri­ga­tion Wah Wah Stock and Do­mes­tic Pipeline, which pro­vides a steady sup­ply for crop­ping dur­ing sum­mer.

The home­stead, which has a work­shop nearby, fea­tures a res­i­dence with a three-sided ve­ran­dah, a black­wood-tim­ber kitchen, three bed­rooms and an of­fice.

The prop­erty is sit­u­ated 28km from the town of Gool­gowi and 60km from Griffith, which is a ma­jor re­gional cen­tre with a fo­cus on agri­cul­ture.

Due to Griffith’s cul­ture for farm­ing, it of­fers ex­cep­tional agri­cul­tural and agron­omy sup­port ser­vices, ed­u­ca­tion and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the North­ern Riverina in which the prop­erty lies is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing strong growth in cot­ton pro­duc­tion.

Rawl­in­son & Brown says the prop­erty cur­rently has about 365 acres of cot­ton planted from the 2016-17 grow­ing pro­gram.

“Boree Park, with a bal­ance of red and grey clay soils, has been laser land formed de­vel­oped for ir­ri­ga­tion row crop­ping of cot­ton and ce­re­als,” it says.

“Im­me­di­ate ac­cess to the prop­erty will be granted to the suc­cess­ful pur­chaser to con­tinue with land prepa­ra­tion for 2017 win­ter ce­real crop­ping pro­gram if de­sired.”

It also says the lo­ca­tion is ideal be­cause, in ad­di­tion to the in­creas­ing fo­cus on cot­ton, the area is well equipped to deal with prod­ucts of the farm.

“The RivCott Cot­ton Gin is nearby at Car­rathool, lo­cated 60km away via Tab­bita Lane and Wrights Road. Ad­di­tional Cot­ton Gins are lo­cated at Whit­ton and Hay.

“With the sub­stan­tial ex­pan­sion of chicken grow­ing pro­duc­tion for Ba­iada Poul­try in the Gool­gowi district, there will be ad­di­tional de­mand for ce­real grains.”

The agency adds that hold­ing off on sell­ing grain af­ter har­vest will put the next owner in a good po­si­tion to work with Ba­iada once the poul­try com­pany ex­pands.
