Abundant High Security Water, Deep Rich Soils & Kilometres of Waterfrontage"New Dunrobin" in Tasmania's scenic Derwent Valley is a versatile property that is suited to many primary production enterprises.
The property currently seasonally milks 650 cows in a modern 60 stall rotary dairy and has milked over 1,000 cows in recent years producing up to 6,500,000 litres annually.
"New Dunrobin" has a 2,095ML of high security water from the infallible Derwent River and the lift is only a matter of a few metres so pump costs are excellent in comparison to other operations. Soils vary from magnificent deep alluvial loams on the river flats to sandy loams on the elevated areas.
Approximately 435 hectares of the property is irrigated under 6 centre pivot irrigators on multiple sites, with some additional areas watered by hard-hose.
The 3 bedroom home sits on an elevated bend on the confluence of the Derwent River and Meadowbank Lake giving expansive views over the water, farmlands and the incredibly scenic Derwent Valley surrounds.
In the past "New Dunrobin" has produced and bought in lambs and finished them in a feedlot, grown poppies and potatoes and run beef cattle as well as replacement dairy heifers, such is the versatility that large volumes of high security water and good soils allows. Fishing, water sports, camping and tourism could be excellent sidelines for the primary production aspect of the property. This property is a blue ribbon agricultural investment.
