Has anyone seen how cheap the land is out in Tara Qld area? I know its all been fracked up out there from the LNG stuff out that way, but a bargain nonetheless? Lots of land packages going for $20-30k for a 30acre block!

Personally I don't like that type of countryside out there, YMMV. But I've also heard that Tara is full of dope heads, maybe, maybe not, but as always do your research.

I used to work out there for almost 4 years in the Chinchilla area for QGC (lng project).. tara has 1 main strip.. very quiet town.. i dont think anyone there could afford dope.. probably all just grow it themselves though!

One 30ac blocks going for 18k!! Hard to beat for setting up more than one location.. im thinking of buying one while i save up for a larger place closer to Bris!

It is tempting but mean annual rainfall is 656mm - a bit low.  I work in Cobar NSW which has a mean annual rainfall of 400mm there one needs a minimum of 20,000ha (50k acres) to make a living of the land, and you need a good portion of the land cleared.  Most farms are in the 50,000ha, but if one is retired then can get a hobby farm going. 


Most of the properties in Tara are listed as residential so do all residential restrictions apply like animals a person can keep and use of firearms??

There's a couple of cheap-ish places north of Adelaide at the moment. 2 90 acre properties near Blanchetown for $60k & a 430 acre property in Bower for $140k.

I'm not flushed with cash but it's always good to know if there are vacant properties if SHTF

I was looking at some breeders on the net the other day Red. Longreach way, and man was it fugged
with barely a blade of grass visible. The cattle must eat rocks.

They're what we call good doers :P is there many people selling off stock over there? Lots of people are offloading sheep here still as they've got no feed.

Some areas are flogged bare as a bats arse here!
A lot of small irrigation blocks in this shire and so they can grow a bit of feed.
We are understocked here and it usually keeps us in good stead if the spring/summer rain fails.
If it fails to rain before x-mas there will be a lowering of cattle prices state wide and a further reduction in numbers from forced sales.
I will be back looking at solar water pumps to flood irrigate country in our river paddock.
Nothing too large, but life saving for the cattle.
Have to ping off one lot of the agistment cattle soon as I need the land back for ourselves.

Hey Doomie,
I got my solar bore pump from Tuhorse. 390 watts, 36 volts, cylindrical pump and control box for less than $2000 delivered. Mine is the smallest, pumps 240 - 360 gph depending on sunlight from depth of 33 metres. Bloody good gear.

The short distance high volume unit I was looking at was $6,000 without panels.
But it pumps like 34,000 liters a day in summer.

That's a good sort of unit. How many panels will you need? Can you store the power in batteries and pump at night?

Nah, no battery storage as it is direct feed from panels to control box.
In our summers if I have three positions with the panels in the array it would pump 8 hours a day.
12 panels and I get those for $50 each from a solar installer mate.
