“Cubbie of the north” dream

Sally Cripps, Queensland Country Life

The interest in irrigated agriculture in the state’s north west brought on by the tender of nearly 700,000 megalitres of unallocated water in the Flinders and Gilbert River systems has revived a call for consideration for a large water project at Richmond.
