Running Gully comprises 160 acres (64.7 hectares) with a stunning private permanent lake that covers nearly 15 acres and holds over 80,000 kLt of water…(14 million gallons in the old language).
It is one of the largest private water holdings in the area with licensing from the Waters and Rivers Commission to draw water for crops and the marron ponds.
Running Gully sits at the interface of two distinct ecosystems: jarrah forest and karri forest, and their specific under-storey vegetation which supports many species of wild flowers including many orchids.
Mostly karri loam soils with some small areas of sand and peat. Ideal for vines and small crops including avocado, various fruit trees and truffles.
Manjimup Truffles are now rivalling the French black truffle in world culinary circles and many properties in the area are growing this crop with great success, it has become a major export business for the area. The annual Truffle Kerfuffle
has become a very popular event with chefs from all over Australia and the world coming for a weekend of fine local foods and wines.
