General Comments:

Mokana is a nice property, with many mixtures of soil types and grasses, allowing either breeding or fattening to be carried on.  No weeds of any significance, no poison, sitting on the watershed of both Lake Eyre catchment and the Flinders River Catchment.  Water on the western side runs into Walkers Creek and water on the eastern side runs into Tower Hill Creek.  It is situated close to Hughenden and Prairie, with good access for Road Trains right to the cattle yards. Mokana is being offered bare of livestock and will be presented with no cattle on the property. This would allow a potential buyer to access the property with stock once certain conditions are fulfilled.  Mokana is mainly watered by the bore at the house, however, it has very large dams that when full are very impressive, as backup supply.

Price: $130 an acre negotiable
