11 Paddocks feed onto a central laneway system, taking livestock to a timber set of cattle yards with all steel gates, loading race and ramp, accessible by double trucks.

Pastures consist of kikuyu, fescue, rye and clovers with around 140 acres of highly productive red basalt soils, fertilized annually with superphosphate.

The remaining 3 paddocks consist of basalt topped hills and clay based forest soils with good stands of blue gum. An unnamed permanent creek runs south to north the length of the property and supplies water for these large paddocks, which provide excellent winter warmth and protection for livestock.
