The southern boundary is defined by a 5* kilometre frontage to the Lachlan River. LAND & TOPOGRAPHY Woorilla encompasses a mixture of open Riverina plains grazing country naturally benefiting from the Lachlan River which traverses the property along the southern boundary westward. The soil types typically seen along the river are primarily fertile heavier grey-brown clay types that produce outstanding bodies of medics and clovers along with lignum when seasons permit or following beneficial flooding or ‘environmental flows’ that occur periodically through the year. The timber is generally white and grey box gum along the water course. The land type transitions to mostly red loams away from water course country with generally less timber and a more open landscape including some saltbush, blue bush, dillon bush, trefoil, clover, lignum and grass country along with other herbage and burr. The topography is generally flat with natural depressions and an elevation of 105m ASL. FENCING Fencing is predominantly steel posts with 5 plain and 1 barb on the top wire with a large portion upgraded in recent years and is considered stockproof.
