ONCE the tallest ‘structure’ in the southern hemisphere, the Omega tower at Darriman is no more, made redundant by the advent of the GPS system.
Levelled by controlled explosions in early April this year, all that now remains of this Commonwealth-owned 873-acre property is the huge inventory of buildings and infrastructure relating to its previous navigational purposes.
The vast, centrally located office/workshop complex is serviced by an extensive network of internal asphalt roads.
Although conventionally supplied with three-phase power, the facility’s diesel powered 700kVA generation plant remains with the property.
Co-existing with this usage since its construction in the late 1970s, the property has been utilised for cattle breeding, running approximately 200 cows and calves.
It’s positioned only 10km from the magnificent 90 Mile Beach.
The region enjoys a mild coastal climate with a reported 600-625mm annual rainfall.
Located on the South Gippsland highway at Darriman, Omega lays 30 minutes south of Sale, 45 minutes from the Latrobe Valley and 1.45 hours from Pakenham.
The offering of this Omega property with such an enviable inventory of buildings, shedding and infrastructure presents an affordable opportunity for a multitude of agricultural pursuits.
