TWO large-scale New South Wales properties, Dungalear South in the north-west, and Glenroy west of Tottenham are on the market.

Dungalear South

Locals are showing good interest in a large mixed grazing and farming operation in New South Wales’ north-west to be auctioned on July 27.

The 12,322ha Dungalear South is 32km north of Walgett and 49km south of Lightning Ridge.

It once formed part of the larger, historic Dungalear Station, which used to shear 100,000 sheep, and comprises both freehold country and a western lands lease.

The 10,283ha western grazing country, typical of the Walgett district, is well regarded and timbered with coolibah, myall and belah.

It is conservatively running 3500 ewes and followers.

More than 970 hectares are arable grey and black soils that grow barley and wheat.

Water is secured from dams and the Dungalear and Bairnkine bores.

Improvements include a shearing shed, steel yards and a hay shed.

Moree Real Estate and Kelly Property Sales have been appointed to sell Dungalear South.


Pangee Creek cropping country in the Central West has been listed for sale by the Broadbent and Hamilton families for $4 million.

Glenroy is a broadacre and dryland holding spanning 2916ha.

It is located 65km south-west of Nyngan and 70km west of Tottenham.

The Central Victorian vendors have listed Glenroy after three years of ownership due to a portfolio restructure.

They recently sold the adjoining 1734ha Part Glenroy for $1.2M.

Last year, more than 2000ha on Glenroy was sown to wheat, barley and canola by a nearby farmer.

That lease expires in 2026, but Paddy Ward from Ray White Rural said the incoming purchaser can renegotiate the terms.

Once cleared, a further 400ha of previously farmed, chained country could bring the total cropping area to more than 2500ha.

Situated in a 442mm annual rainfall region, Glenroy has well-balanced red to sandy loams and grey soils that are watered by four dams.
Improvements include a partially built besser block house, a woolshed and cattle yards.

Mr Ward said early inquiry is coming from southern NSW, Orange and Dubbo producers wanting to expand with cropping country that has minimal timber and that can be run remotely.
