Gday,

So what is this?

Nomadic Navara,
You obviously havent been there when a group of us go down to Jims for a ride?
It would be a hell of a lot bigger than 80 hectares if all the $hit was pumped out there!

Very likely a centre pivot irrigator.

At the centre is usually a pump, or derlivery point from a pump elsewhere. The pipe rises around 4m out of the ground, turns at right angle and then runs parallel to the ground. It's held up by a-frames with wheels, and has sprinklers hanging off it

In most instances the water pressure also drives the system, so start it up and the water jets out of the sprinklers while the whole system rotates.

Do you mean the big shark at 31 59 20.37 S, 152 34 18.29 E ?

The only way I could get those co-ords to wark was to put decimal points in between the last two groups to produce decimal seconds.
