“Maralinga” enjoys double frontage to the Chandler River, just before it plunges into the gorge to join the Wollomombi River on its way to the coast. There are also 26 paddock dams, plus access to the Oaky Dam. Rainfall is about 875mm annually.
Four bedroom, weatherboard home with new kitchen, separate living areas, large laundry, set in a garden overlooking the Chandler River. There is a 3 bedroom cottage in the same grounds, in addition to shearers’ quarters and an unused workers’ cottage.
Hinge joint or netting is used throughout the internal and boundary fencing. There are 16 main paddocks.
