NORTH Bur­nett breed­ing and fat­ten­ing prop­erty The Gorge, with a free­hold area of 2915 hectares, is 54 kilo­me­tres south­east of Monto, 59 kilo­me­tres north of Eidsvold, 46 kilo­me­tres west of Mount Perry and Bund­aberg is 150 kilo­me­tres away.

The home­stead and yards are seven kilo­me­tres off the bi­tu­men Mount Perry-Monto Road. The coun­try com­prises 283 hectares of for­mer soft­wood scrub orig­i­nally tim­bered with bot­tle­tree and briga­low, de­vel­oped to pas­tures of buf­fel, panic and rhodes grass.

The bal­ance of 2630 hectares is creek flats ris­ing to ridges. Tim­ber along the flats is blue gum, More­ton Bay ash, ap­ple­tree and broadleaf iron­bark, with blood wood and nar­row leaf iron­bark along the ridges and patches of spot­ted gum.

Pas­tures in the for­est coun­try are soft na­tives.

Bay­wulla Creek runs through the length of the prop­erty with per­ma­nent holes.

All pad­docks have per­ma­nent sur­face ei­ther from dams or creeks plus four bores sup­ply tanks and troughs.

The own­ers con­sis­tently carry 700 head from breed­ers to bul­locks, join­ing 330 breed­ers.
