Country, Soils & Pastures

Carinya sits across a broad ridge, rolling off either side. Soils are basalt and trap, with gullies channeling water to strategically located dams. Pastures have been well managed for decades. Fertiliser has been maintained and there is a good body of pasture and sown crop as at June 2106. The property has been appropriately stocked and is handling the current dry season extremely well. This augers well for the next owners.
