The lagoon is regularly stocked with trout and is currently utilised to full advantage with a jetty, large entertaining deck and floating pontoon to enhance the lifestyle experience. A perennial creek runs through the property and with riparian rights to Cluny Lagoon, access to an unlimited supply of clean, fresh water is not an issue. No more water bills!
There are fenced paddocks for stock, outbuildings including barn, animal shelters, aviaries, chook houses, dog enclosures, extremely productive 'Herborium', as well as two containers with lights and power connected currently used as workshop / garden shed / storage.
