NEW South Wales farmers seeking scale and more affordable country are showing good interest in two properties listed in the state’s central region.

The 2398ha Wallaroi West is situated 44km south-west of Condobolin and 100km north of West Wyalong.

The mixed farm fronts Wallaroi Creek and is being offered to the market by Peter and Lydia Allen after 10 years of ownership.

The country is flat to gently sloping with red sandy loams to grey self-mulching soils that grow wheat, barley and canola on rotation, with 130ha of irrigation and the potential for more.

There is heavy carrying capacity country on the Wallaroi Creek that is currently lightly stocked with sheep.

Located in a 456mm annual average rainfall area, the property has 10km of Wallaroi Creek frontage and four dams.

There are around 180ha of mallee tree line plantations established over 1800ha of the property.

Improvements include two homes, a shearing shed, steel sheep and cattle yards, two large hay sheds, and 370t of grain storage.

Oscar Freeman and Paddy Ward from Ray White Rural have been appointed to handle the expressions-of-interest campaign for Wallaroi West, which closes June 22.

Brooklands tipped to fetch $7M

Around $7 million is anticipated for the 1266ha Brooklands, which has been aggregated over the past 20 years by Edwin Nash.

It comprises three adjoining holdings: 445ha Brooklands; 229ha Woodlands, and 592ha Musk Bush.

Located 25km south of Peak Hill and 36km north-west of Parkes, the properties have a northerly aspect and are flood safe.

Around one third of the country consists of red soils, with the balance running into mulching and darker soils that are currently growing cereals and a range of pastures including lucerne, medics and clovers.

Situated in a 525mm annual rainfall region, the property is well watered by dams and seasonal creek flows.

Gavan Coote from Kevin Miller Whitty Lennon & Co said the aggregation’s layout and access were a feature.

“Brooklands is roughly square; most paddocks are straight sided and are currently farmed on 12m and 36m tramlines,” Mr Coote said.

“All paddocks front one of four solid grain exit tracks which lead on to 8km of road-train route with double road frontage.”

Operating infrastructure includes three haysheds, a machinery shed, two steel sheep yards and a shearing shed.
