Annual Water Auction 2020 

- Online Auction Results -

The 8th Annual Wilks Water Auction was held online on Friday 22nd May, exceeding expectations.

The change to an online auction was precipitated by the current rules around social distancing (COVID 19). It was a steep learning curve for the Wilks Water team and a big change for vendors and bidders.

46 registered bidders competed for the 130 lots offered for sale totalling over 23,400ML.

Murrumbidgee Valley temporary was good buying, with prices topping at $250/ML down to $205/ML for smaller parcels.

With an early autumn break in the weather and the promise of more rain to come, Murrumbidgee High Security Water Entitlements were slightly cheaper and sold for $7,500/ML (Post Auction) with General Security selling from $1,900-$1,925/ML, slightly higher than recent sales. Victorian Low Reliability Water Entitlements were sold at $550/ML and temporary Lower Murrumbidgee Groundwater in Zone 1 reached $220/ML.

Don’t Forfeit your water

With the end of the season fast approaching, now is the time to ensure your water account balance does not exceed your carryover limit (General Security & Groundwater licence holders). High Security entitlement holders can not carryover, so any unused water left in accounts will be forfeited.
