A total land area of 490* hectares, of which 400* hectares (82%) has been developed and planted to local Western Australian native Leptospermum species - mostly Leptospermum nitens and Leptospermum scoparium, with Leptospermum roei on some parts of the Property.

The Property does comprise an area of planting which has been carried out as a part of a Clean Energy Regulator (CER) approved carbon sequestration project. The project commenced in 2019 and to date, no audit has been conducted.
Currently utilised as a livestock grazing enterprise, predominately fenced and watered for sheep production, albeit cattle have previously been grazed on the Property. The Property also benefits from floriculture and honey production.
