The Wimmera region of Victoria is most widely known for traditional broad acre farming with cereal, sheep and cattle grazing as the mainstay of its agricultural industry.
Most of the Wimmera is very flat, with the hills heading towards the Grampians and Mount Arapiles rising above the region's plains.
The climate is semi-arid to sub-humid with the annual rainfall ranging from 380 mm in the north of the region to 580 mm in the southern areas. Snowfalls are not uncommon in the eastern parts. Most of the rain falls during winter, however, it is not uncommon to have heavy summer falls. Summers are hot with a number of days above 40 degrees centigrade and winters are cooler with day-time temperatures in the 15 to 18 degree range. This rainfall pattern and hot summers mean rainwater tanks are a mainstay for water supply in the region.
The major towns in the Wimmera region include Horsham, Warracknabeal, Dimboola, Stawell, Nhill, St Arnaud and Edenhope. Bushmans has stockists throughout this region and they will provide all the information and services required to select and install the right tank. These stockists also carry a wide range of water products including water pumps, water pipe and fittings, troughs and other accessories.
