RAINFALL: 1177mm (47 inches) per annum average.
REMARKS: This property is situated in the Mothar Mountain area to the south east of Gympie. It boasts fabulous views over Gympie & the Mary Valley and it is becoming harder to find larger acreage properties on the east side of Gympie.
Properties with such large water storage for irrigation at pumping costs only are very rare (no paid licences). Would suit grazing, cattle stud, with some cropping or small cropping enterprise, but there would be many other agricultural uses for this quality property.
