About this listing
The Burdekin has long been regarded as one of the most productive agricultural districts in Australia. In recent years harsh climatic conditions and water shortages in other parts of the country have further highlighted the region's strengths. Even in the face of Australia's worst drought in living memory, the mighty Burdekin remain resilient and prosperous. The reason of this can be summed up in one word water.

The Burdekin is built on "liquid gold", the name given to the regions massive water supply. That water supply includes a huge underground aquifer, the vast Burdekin and delta watercourses and the mighty Burdekin Falls Dam, which holds four times more water than the Sydney Harbour. The Burdekin's abundant, all year round supply of good-quality water as the regions number one asset. The districts rich supply of irrigation water combines with about 300 days of sunshine a year and fertile, well-drained soils, to make the Burdekin the most productive sugar cane growing area in Australia.

About 80,000 ha of land in the Burdekin is dedicated to sugar cane. Burdekin farmers produce an average of 120 tonnes of cane per hectare - well above the national average of 80 tonnes per hectare. The Burdekin also boasts strong fruit, vegetable, beef and aquaculture industries. The agricultural areas of the Burdekin region are predominately made up of high-quality delta (60 000ha) and leave
soils (25,000 ha) which range from sandy loam to clay and are generally well drained.
