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

ALFA’S ir­ri­gation farm – with its frontage to the Con­damine River, po­si­tion to Chin­chilla, ex­cel­lent ir­ri­gation wa­ter and fan­tas­tic views – presents a mul­ti­tude of op­por­tu­ni­ties for the as­tute buyer.

This 52.25ha (129-acre) prop­erty has all-weather ac­cess from Bark­ers Rd via Wind­mill Rd, with gravel road ac­cess to sheds.

The coun­try is gen­tly un­du­lat­ing with ex­cel­lent drainage. Soils are heavy brown loam, suitable for grow­ing all types of crops, es­pe­cially lucerne.

The to­tal area is cul­ti­vated with 40.46ha un­der pivot ir­ri­gation.

In­cluded is an ex­tremely well set up ir­ri­gation plant with two near-new cen­tre pivot units, un­der­ground mains, elec­tric mo­tor, pump and com­puter sys­tem. Power sup­ply has also been in­stalled to both cen­tre piv­ots.

It has an an­nual wa­ter al­lo­ca­tion of 252 me­gal­itres from the Con­damine River, plus a 40-me­gal­itre wa­ter har­vest­ing al­lo­ca­tion. The prop­erty has a CSG wa­ter sup­ply agree­ment that sup­plies an av­er­age of about 11 me­gal­itres per month.

There is a large fully en­closed shed with con­crete

walls in­cor­po­rat­ing two 18m x 12m at­tached hay sheds, en­closed on three sides. Portable liv­ing quar­ters with power and sep­tic sys­tem con­nected in­clude a kitchen, one bed­room, shower and small ve­randa.
