Successful agricultural farming was seen as the main economic activity, thanks to the well irrigated fertile lands. The crops grown included vineyards, tobacco, grain with livestock farming such as lamb and beef introduced by the 1860s.Vegetable and dairy farming was also introduced in early 1900s and remained an important part of the local economy. The Hunter River proved to be the source of livelihood for the locals though it provided substantial destructions such as floods disturbing the local industry for many years. In 1955, for instance, the floods caused by the Hunter River destroyed livestock, crops and homes.
