MICHAEL and Sally Moody and family's stand out Cunnamulla property Abbadoah has earned a very strong reputation for turning off quality livestock and wool.
Located 20km east of Cunnamulla on the St George Road, the 16,504 hectare (40,781 acre) freehold and GHPL property also has a 1002ha permit to occupy.
Abbadoah (pronounced locally as Abbadore) comprises of mainly Warrego floodplain country timbered with gidyea and coolibah growing Mitchell, blue, Flinders, and button grasses as well as a variety of herbages in season.
Throughout the floodplain country are areas of sandhill with ironwood, supple jack, wilga and mulga. The remainder of the country is red loamy to gravely stony mulga box country.
The Moody family has been the custodian of Abbadoah for the past 60 years. The estimated carrying capacity is 8000 dry sheep equivalents.
Abbadoah is exceptionally well watered by three flowing bores.
Gilruth Plains is watered by a bore drain system through every paddock from the flowing artesian bore. There are also dams located in four of the paddocks.
Abbadoah has a well maintained five stand shearing shed with steel sheep yards and undercover shedding for 2000 sheep. Gilruth has a four stand shed in fair condition with portable panel sheep yards.
The property is divided into 13 main and six holding paddocks. There is 20.3km of new exclusion fencing on the property.
Improvements include an architecturally designed five bedroom, three bathroom timber homestead with a large, open plan living area. The homestead is surrounded by an established garden.
There is also a machinery shed and workshop, shearers quarters, two 50 tonne Sherwell silos on concrete slabs, and two sets of steel cattle yards.
