TAS Country : September 16th 2010
26 Tasmanian Country Friday, September 17, 2010 Fingal Valley property solid as a rock ROCK House, in the Royal George Valley on the St Pauls River, supports prime lamb production, cropping under pivot irri- gators and grazing wool sheep and beef cattle. Historically this whole farming district has sup- ported wool growing and beef. Today these waterways also provide irrigation for poppies, vegetables and cereals. Rock House has been held by one family for more than 50 years and the lovingly maintained c1850 homestead and gardens are testimony to the occu- pants today. The property is situated 20 kilometres from Avoca and is only 100 kms from Launceston. About 65 per cent is arable and about 20 per cent is healthy run country. Merinos form the nu- cleus of a self replacing ewe flock and first and second cross lambs are bred from Suffolk and Wh- ite Suffolk sires for the prime lamb industry. Merino wethers have held a place in the wool growing enterprise and along with an Angus cow herd were dispersed a number of years ago after a run of dry seasons. Today, trading cattle numbers are less than 50 head. There are two Bauer fixed-centre pivot irri- gators, installed in 2006 --- a six-span and a four-span. They cover 67 ha with a water entitlement of 297.5ML . There is suitable country available to double the area under pivots, lim- ited by the need for more water storage. Poppies, winter wheats, barley, oats and potatoes have all been grown in recent years. Lucerne and perennial pastures sustain grazing. The homestead of stone and render boasts four spacious bedrooms, lounge and family room, formal dining room, a large kitchen, pantry, bathroom, laundry (which includes second shower and bath- room facilities). There is a four-stand, timber framed , iron clad shearing shed for 650 woolies. Timber sheep yards incor- porate a raised drenching/ classing race. An iron-clad machinery shedof18mx9mhasa cement floor, three-open bays, two bays for a lock-up workshop. A vehicle shed has a cement floor, Colorbond ex- terior, two open bays and one lock-up bay. There are two Dutch hay barns, two 1400-bushell grain silos and a slaughter house.
