Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

LO­CATED about 37km west of Toowoomba, near Jondaryan on the War­rego High­way is the pro­duc­tive ir­ri­ga­tion prop­erty Durham Park.

Con­sist­ing of 198.4ha or (490 acres) the prop­erty con­tains 400 acres (161.9ha) of black to cho­co­late soil cul­ti­va­tion.

The stand-out fea­ture is the ir­ri­ga­tion on the prop­erty com­pris­ing of a ground­wa­ter al­lo­ca­tion of 200ML with three equipped ir­ri­ga­tion bores all in­ter­con­nected.

In ad­di­tion there is an al­lo­ca­tion from Oakey Creek with a nom­i­nal vol­ume of 72ML.

Wa­ter is pumped via 200mm pvc to 2 x 5 span Zim­matic Cen­tre Piv­ots down the cen­tre of the prop­erty, in all, there are 4.5 cir­cles which are used to ir­ri­gate crops like lucerne, grain and ce­real crops, cot­ton and now in the area as­tute op­er­a­tions are re­al­is­ing that this area is ide­ally suited to the grow­ing of small crops.

In ad­di­tion to the cen­tre piv­ots there are spray lines to ir­ri­gate the lucerne.

In ad­di­tion to the ir­ri­ga­tion there is a do­mes­tic elec­tric bore and a pump on Oakey Creek for wa­ter for the gar­den and live­stock.

Durham Park has a grand, turn-of-the-cen­tury home­stead which is per­fectly po­si­tioned over­look­ing the pic­turesque Oakey Creek.

The home has large wide ve­ran­dahs, large mod­ern eat-in kitchen and liv­ing area, for­mal lounge with fire­place, three dou­ble bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.
