The Daw­son Val­ley Wa­ter Scheme feeds the toi­let, gar­dens and troughs with un­treated wa­ter at $1/1000lt plus $80/term.

The rest of the house gets wa­ter from one 8400-gal­lon and three 5000-gal­lon rain­wa­ter tanks with two

pres­sure pumps.

It has a four bay port (two car; one work space; one stor­age). It also has a six-bay ma­chin­ery shed and a high port for car­a­van or bus stor­age.

There is a chook run with a shed on a con­crete floor, a cow yard with sad­dle shed, trough and brand­ing cra­dle, two sea­sonal dams, and more troughs.

It is pos­si­ble to run 10 cat­tle for 365 days with­out ex­tra feed.

This prop­erty is all-pas­ture ap­proved.
