COUNTRY:  Rockwood is a very high quality block of Country. It is predominately Open Downs Country, with self-cracking clay soils, mixed with Gidgee Pebble ridges throughout. Landsborough Channels run through the western side. Jerkins Creek runs through the northern end.  Kybona Creek runs through the middle.  Breakfast Creek through the Southern End.

 

Rockwood has received approximately 10 Inches Rain for 2020, and the country has responded well with grass and herbage growth.  The majority of pastures are of Mitchell Grass & Queensland Blue Grasses, Button Grass, Buffel Grasses (along creeks & ridges) and seasonal herbages including Flinders Grass.  Trees are Whitewood, Bauhinia, Coolibah, Vinewood, Sandalwood & Gundabluey.  No Prickly Acacia.

 

This is probably the best block of country south of Hughenden. It was previously a Bullock fattening property for Tancreds Meat Company many years ago, and prior to that it was part of the renowned Scottish Australian Property Portfolio.

 

Rockwood has been renowned for producing heavy cattle.  Though it has been through 8 dry years, widespread rain in January & February 2020 has given it a great start for this year.
