FIELD TRIP ONE
Rain Bird Field Trip | Kombumerri Park, Gold Coast
Facilitated by Tim Robertson from Rain Bird
Join our field trip for a visit to Kombumerri Park in the Gold Coast. We will be highlighting and demonstrating the Rain Bird 8005 Turf rotor and the IQ3 Central Control System. We will also take some time to demonstrate the NEW range of RVAN rotary nozzles for smaller radius applications.
The Rain Bird 8005 turf rotor is a product of choice, particularly when used with reclaimed and treated water. It’s a versatile and durable commercial rotor that stands the test of time. The Rain Bird IQ3 platform makes central control accessible and easy to use for councils, schools, nurseries and turf farms. The Rain Bird IQ3 system allows remote access and a high-level control with advanced features to ensure the Intelligent Use of Water.
This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see some of the benchmark Rain Bird products in action and see what this can mean for you.

Rain Bird Installation, Hosted by Scott Smythe, SS Irrigation
Westfield Coomera Field Trip
The scope and range of greenspace elements at Westfield Coomera Shopping Centre made this an exciting and challenging project for SS Irrigation to be a part of alongside CBD Landscape Construction.
Delegates will have an opportunity to see how the irrigation system was installed to accommodate a range of green space areas and elements across multiple levels including suspended pots, large format planter boxes at ground and upper levels, large turfed and planted greenspace areas and outdoor carparks.
We will demonstrate how the existing irrigation design was modified during construction to accommodate the clients request to irrigate suspended planter pots as well as extend turfed and planted areas beyond the original design scope. This was an exciting project for SS Irrigation to be a part of and we look forward to the opportunity to introduce it to you.
