"QUINELLA"

"Quinella" is a unique farm because of its natural ability to harvest water from the surrounding farms and the adjoining state forest. It has 1 in 700 natural fall from south west to north west.

Current water storage licences are in place for

  • Large storage dam (approximately 1,800 megalitre capacity) measures 700 metres x 500 metres
  • Smaller storage dam (approximately 200 megalitre capacity)
  • i.e. total approximately 2,000 megalitre capacity

This gives "Quinella" the ability to harvest and store 2,000 megalitres of irrigation water (in excess of two billion litres). A similar water harvest licence in the same region recently sold for $900 per megalitre

Due to new government regulations, licences such as those attached to "Quinella", will not be available in the future.

Earthworks to enable this huge storage capacity has meant over a half million cubic metres of soil has been moved to bring "Quinella" to its current state of development.
