|Land released in Western Australia for agricultural enterprise|
The Western Australian Government’s Ord-East Kimberley Expansion Project has reached a major milestone with the release of more than 15,200ha of irrigable agricultural land near Kununurra in Western Australia’s tropical north east.
The Government is now seeking Expressions of Interest for around 15,000 hectares of irrigable agricultural land across three areas.
The irrigation expansion project forms part of a $415million partnership between the Western Australian and Australian Governments to encourage the development of agricultural enterprise, new community and social infrastructure and see Kununurra emerge as a major regional hub.
The project has been made possible through the Ord Final Agreement a native title agreement between the State Government of Western Australia and the Miriuwung and Gajerrong people,
