Need a few goats as mowers and a simple fence!

Is that right? You need a dose of reality. A simple fence will not keep goats in. And at $7000 per km for decent fencing you could buy a lot of food preps, or a tractor and slasher, or a shit load of herbicide.

Looks great. good work. water and power are the logical next step.

have you got topo and arial maps of the way there and the surrounding areas?
what game species have you got in the area? what fish in the river?
are you storing boats/canoes/bikes or anything?
whats the bushfire risk? any measures against fire

The river, the 140sq metre of roof and the water tanks take care of water. In the process of upgrading the solar power system.

I do have good quality maps of the surrounding area, but not the route there from my home. Been there that many times I could find it blindfolded.

Fresh meat includes goat, duck, rabbit, roo, carp, and the odd trout and pig. And lamb of course.

Bushfire is always a risk, especially when the property is unattended. The cabin has a firebreak, in places up to 700m wide, on 3 sides. We keep the grass mown around all the buildings as well, because grass fires are dangerous too. The high side, which is the least at risk because fire travels more slow.y down hill, has the most trees but is protected by a 2m high earth berm.

I don't store boats, bikes or canoes. I store food, tools, ammunition and hardware.

sounds like a smorgasboard.

sounds pretty secure, as far as you can make it, from bushfires without anyone operating an active system.

how often do you get up there?
