RainMan Scada

About the Shire of Esperance

Remote and utterly breathtaking, the port town of Esperance has a coastline that would rival any in the world. Bright white beaches with powdery sand meet the placid ocean and endless islands, and in nearby remote areas kangaroos regularly come to laze on the white sand. With a population of more than 12,000 and boasting beautiful turfed beachfronts, streetscapes, and playing fields, Esperance is a popular tourist destination, and efficient irrigation management is a key to keeping the town beautifully Green and Lean!
