“The Anchorage” is a medium scale irrigated cropping enterprise situated 8 kms north of St George in the south-west region of Queensland. Land occupied by ‘The Anchorage’ was used predominantly for grazing before the irrigation development commenced in 1996.
The property comprises over 12,000 hectares of which area is developed for irrigated production as well as irrigation support infrastructure and balance area for grazing purposes. The irrigated land on ‘The Anchorage’ is surrounded by woodland. This land is lightly grazed by cattle.
The property has been designed to harvest water from significant flood events and store irrigation water on farm in extremely efficient water storage infrastructure. The property also accesses regulated water from Beardmore Dam. The property’s unique gravity diversion infrastructure proves highly beneficial both environmentally and economically.
