The North Eastern part of Victoria is known as the high country which incorporates the Snowy Alps and the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range. This is a diverse area with extremely cold winters in the ranges to hot dry summers on the slopes. The Murray River is the northern border of the region as well as a major source of water for irrigation in the slopes region.
The rainfall in the area ranges from 650mm through to 1000mm per annum. The rainfall distribution is skewed towards winter and spring, however there is significant rainfall in the summer and autumn. This rainfall pattern is ideal for the storage of water in a rainwater tank.
The economy of the region is diversified with tourism in the Alps, extensive horticulture and orchards along the rivers, dairying, and a major wine industry. These tourism and agricultural industries are complimented by manufacturing in Wangaratta and Wodonga.
The major cities of Wangaratta, and Wodonga are key service and industrial centres for the region and the major towns include Mansfield, Beechworth, Benalla, Bright, Myrtleford, Rutherglen, and Glenrowan. These cities and towns have Bushmans stockists who will provide all the right advice on the size and installation of water tanks.
