The property comprises a large area of first class level lake bed country on the eastern side of the block which benefits from seasonal flooding and fills the profile for the next year.

It is currently carrying a good body of feed following a good summer. Timber types comprise Box, Wilga, Sandalwood, Mulga and Pine. Grass types comprise Mitchell, Buffel, clovers and native soft burrs.
