Alroy and Eureka have an excellent mix of country with attractive open pebbly downs, lightly timbered with Whitewood, Boree, Vinetree and Bauhinia blending into well shaded pebbly gidgee and false Sandalwood country with areas of Gidgee scrub and stony outcrops. The soil types range from heavily grassed grey and brown cracking clays to lighter grassed, quick responding pebbly ridges. This lighter country will carry a good cover of edible summer or winter herbages when in season. The grasses are predominately Mitchell and Flinders grass with a spread of Buffel grass along many of the Coolibah creek systems. Eureka has approximately 1400ha of thick gidgee type country and approximately 720ha of stony outcrops and broken gidgee country. Alroy has approximately 460ha of thicker gidgee type country and approximately 490ha of stony outcrops and broken gidgee country.
Alroy and Eureka are watered by 7 dams and seasonal water holes in the creeks that last for 3 to 4 months after the wet season. 6 of the 7 dams are fenced off and all have a tank and troughs with one equipped with a solar pump and two having workable windmills. 2 of the three dams on Alroy have been recently cleaned out as has one of the dams on Eureka. There are 2 bores on Eureka neither being equipped at present. There are approximately 10 tanks and 28 troughs on Alroy and Eureka combined.
The division fence between Alroy and Eureka is a reasonably new 4 barb wire fence. The majority of the boundary fencing with Upshot is also reasonably new including a section of exclusion fencing that is being erected at present. The boundary fence along Angledool is old 6ft netting with most of it being in good stock proof condition. The majority of the boundary fencing with Strathfinella is recently new and is in good stock proof condition. The majority of the boundary fencing with Dalkeith and The Ranch is a mixture of old 6ft and 4ft netting in good stock proof condition.
The internal fencing is a mixture of new and old fencing that is in poor to very good condition. There are several sections that need replacing that would amount to approximately 10 km. The vendor has a substantial amount of fencing material on hand that could be included in the sale. It is well fenced into 8 main paddocks and 8 holding paddocks. All paddocks link laneway to both the sheep and cattle yards.
There is a set of steel sheep yards and a set of portable steel panel cattle yards which are both connected to water.
