A LARGE mixed-farming aggregation with substantial water entitlements in southern New South Wales is attracting good local interest.

Lynbrae is situated near Burraboi, 34km from Barham and 81km from Deniliquin in the state’s Southern Riverina and Murray Irrigation districts.

Spanning 1665ha across five adjoining holdings, the property is being offered as a whole or as two contingent lots: the 328ha Mount Hay, 384ha Inglebrae, 209ha Mount Hay South and/or the 474ha Lynbrae and 270ha Mungarra.

It has been held by Gordon Family Farms since 1963 and is being sold as part of succession planning, and is anticipated to make around $7 million.

The Lynbrae Aggregation is currently growing 354ha of wheat, 230ha of rice and 120ha of oats, with the balance irrigated pasture and dryland grazing currently running 250 cattle and 600 sheep.

Elders agent Peter Robertson said the well-balanced soils and efficient layout means the incoming purchaser can continue to produce high-yielding grain, fodder crops and livestock.

A strategically designed flood irrigation and recycle system extends over the five holdings with room for expansion.

The Lynbrae Aggregation features extensive frontage to the Jimaringle Creek and 3300ML of 2023 water entitlements which are included in the sale.

Infrastructure includes cattle and sheep yards, a four-stand shearing shed and excellent fencing.

Mr Robertson said the successful purchaser can take up the working rights to complete the rice ready cropping program and capitalise on the positive future irrigation allocation outlook.

Expressions of interest for the Lynbrae Aggregation close on September 8.
