Description of Country

The country is soft undulating open downs that is very lightly timbered with Vinetree, Whitewood and prickly acacia. McKenzie is lightly grassed with Mitchell, Flinders grass and summer herbages that are responding well from recent rainfall.

Water Improvements

There are 3 dams (all with very little water at present) of which 2 are fenced off and are equipped with solar pumps, tanks and troughs. The two sub-artesian bores are equipped with solar power and submersible pumps suppling water to two turkey nests, tanks and 4 troughs. The newest bore was drilled in September 2010 to a depth of 217 metres. The submersible is pumping from 120 metres at 400 gals per hour averaging 3150 gallons per day. The old bore was drilled in 1964 to a depth of 193 metres. The water at both bores is ‘brackish’ in quality.

McKenzie has had up to 120 mm of rain for since Christmas 2015. There has been a good start to the summer season over most of the property but the grass and summer herbage is still very short. Long term Winton district average is 400 mm (16 inches).

Fencing Improvements

The dual purpose sheep / cattle boundary fencing would be considered to be good to very good condition with over 4 km renewed in the last 8 years. It is a mixture of hinge joint with 2 barb or 4 plain & 2 barb.

McKenzie has 3 main paddocks and 1 holding paddock. All the internal fencing is in excellent condition as it has recently been erected and is mostly 2 barb and 2 plain wires.
