“Lowana” presents as an opportunity to purchase a sizeable parcel of genuine grazing/cropping development land set among an enclave of tightly held, well established rural enterprises.

"Lowana" Area: 957ha (2360Ac) freehold land.

“Lowana” Location: A prime southern New South Wales location. Albury City is only 40kms via Hume Freeway and sealed Mountain Creek Road. Holbrook 22kms via sealed road. Long frontage to Mountain Creek Road. Lake Hume is 15kms away. An easy accessed popular location.

“Lowana” Climate: Adjacent to the Mountain Creek Valley regarded as a pleasant temperate climate with average temperatures of 20-21 degrees. The whole district is regarded as the most climatically stable area in southern New South Wales.

“Lowana” Rainfall: East of Albury and the Holbrook district in general is regarded as a 680mm-700mm(27-28) annual rainfall area.

“Lowana” Land Description: “Lowana” divides itself into four (4) distinct areas being pasture improved country (approximately 300ha), improved pastured country (approximately 530ha) and a quieter 40ha of higher, steeper country and 65ha of light, sparse, unencumbered regrowth area. Each area compliments the other and fencing has been designed to allow for management around each area. 

“Lowana” Soils: “Lowana” lends itself to be improved by way of pasture immediately with emphasis placed on the 350ha of natural pasture country. This country in the main is grey & red loam country with areas of decomposed red granite country and some small areas of shale country. “Lowana” will improve dramatically under a more intensive management program.

“Lowana” Fencing: The boundary fencing has been maintained to a high level and is in good condition. Boundary fencing is mostly netting fencing. The property is subdivided into 15 paddocks and again is in very good condition, comprised of netting, barbs, plain and ring-lock with mostly steel posts and substantial strainers.

“Lowana” Water: A reliable and well maintained water system with a bore supplying the surrounds, and some troughing plus 22 strategically placed catchment areas throughout the property, some of which are spring fed. Rainwater catchment tank services the residence (100,000L).

“Lowana” is a genuine grazing property with the opportunity to crop a large proportion of the property. The location, the size, the water and fencing all speak for themselves. The opportunity to develop the already sound productivity of the property by way of pasture improvement in the higher rainfall area would seem unique. Inspection is recommended.
