Overall, the Kimberley region holds 80% of Western Australia’s fresh surface water resources with consistent high rainfall in a region which has not experienced severe drought conditions over the past 100 years.
The Kimberley region is located in Australia’s North West and is recognised as being one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. It is a sought after destination for an authentic Australian outback adventure. Tourism in the Kimberley has grown in recent years, both despite and because of the region’s remoteness. It is one of the world’s hidden treasures with spectacular landscapes including gorges, waterfalls, caves, lush rainforest and a large variety of unique wildlife, both on the land and in the ocean.
The Kimberley is one of the most exciting agricultural regions in the world. The Ord River Irrigation Scheme – located in close proximity to Yeeda’s Springvale properties, is a government driven plan to develop part of the nation’s tropical north for intensive irrigated agriculture by taking advantage of the waters of the Ord River.
The Goldfields, located to the east of Perth, Western Australia is steeped in history and legend, dotted with historic settlements, ghost towns and fortunes made and lost. The region is famous for the gold rush, which took place throughout the 1890s, and modern day gold mining.
The landscape is vast and unique with deserts and open plains. The centre of the region is the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, a 40 minute flight from Perth, which is becoming a living museum for the outback mining industry. The Goldfields has a long established history of successful sheep farming.
Geraldton is a beachside city located on Western Australia’s Coral Coast, 424 km north of Perth. The city is set between the Indian Ocean to the west, the Moresby ranges to the east and the Chapman Valley to the north.
The main industries in Geraldton include agriculture mining, fishing, manufacturing, construction and tourism. Geraldton is the hub of the Mid-West region which also has a long history of successful wheat and sheep farming. It offers established meat processing works as well as the benefit of proximity to shipping, road and rail transport.
Environmental Policy and Responsibility
Yeeda is extremely aware and conscious of the pristine environment in which it operates, and continuously monitors its range lands to ensure that there is no degradation of land, flora, fauna or aquifers. This is essential in maintaining its tenure of its pastoral leases.
Yeeda has maintained documentary and photographic records that clearly show an enhancement of the land under its management over recent years.
