WALGETT property Winooka, Warrabone at Carinda and Narri Station at Cobar are among the mixed-farming properties on NSW plains country to come to market this autumn.


Wee Waa’s Conrad Bolton has listed his cropping and livestock enterprise on the banks of the Barwon River for $8.5 million.

The 2748ha Winooka is located 13km north of Walgett in north-western NSW.

It is being offered by the former Narrabri Shire mayor after 20 years of ownership, on a walk-in walk-out basis including plant and equipment.

Around 1072ha is arable and developed to dryland farming for grain and fodder cropping on the floodplain country, which consists of level chocolate and grey self-mulching alluvial loams.

The country has been sprayed and cultivated and is ready for 2024 winter planting.

The 1676ha grazing country can support around 1200DSE and 138 head of cattle.

Nutrien Harcourts agent Chris Clemson said Winooka would suit a producer looking for a mixed-farming enterprise or to expand their current holdings.

Situated in a 450mm annual rainfall region, Winooka is watered by the Barwon River, six dams, and waterholes.

Infrastructure includes a three-bedroom home, a three-bedroom cottage, a donger, a shed, steel cattle and sheep yards, and 200t of grain storage.


A farming and grazing powerhouse in north-western NSW and owned by a Mudgee producer for less than 12 months, will be auctioned on April 9 by Elders.

The 4519ha Warrabone is located 22km south of Carinda, 37km north of Quambone and 80km from Coonamble.

Currently, it is running as a cattle-breeding and fattening operation with 350 breeders and calves plus 900 agistment cattle, but it is also suitable for sheep.

Around 50 percent can be returned to farming with a capacity to produce both winter and summer crops.

Warrabone has soft rich productive soils ranging from sandy loams to heavy clays with large tracts of open paddocks and shade belts.

After 24mm of rain, it is presenting with an outstanding volume of feed.


Elders agent Brian McAneney said Warrabone would suit an absentee landowner.

It is well watered by an artesian bore, a bore drain, and eight dams.

Infrastructure includes a two-bedroom home and steel cattle yards.

Narri Station

After 20 years of ownership, Mark and Mariann Orr are heading east and selling their diverse mixed-farming and grazing enterprise in western NSW.

The 12,277ha Narri Station is located on the Kidman Way, 16km south of Cobar.

Nutrien Russell Property and Livestock agent David Russell said the outstanding property is suited to grain, sheep and cattle.

“The Orrs purchased the block as a blank canvas and during their tenure have renovated the house, invested in new infrastructure (sheds, storage, yards and fencing) and pastoral developments such as clearing.”

Listed for sale for $6.5M, Narri Station has slightly undulating red loam country, mulga box flats and watercourses.

Attached to the property is a 2878ha clearing consent comprising 1713ha of cultivation with 1220ha ready to farm.

The fertile farming land is seasonally driven and is currently growing more than 400ha of cereal crops.

Narri is currently running 2500 dorper ewes and lambs on a variety of native grasses and herbages.

Depending on the season, it agists cattle and sells around 1200 rangeland goats.

Mr Russell reports good interest from locals and Victoria and southern Riverina producers looking to expand with more affordable breeding country.

Situated in a 325mm average annual rainfall region, Narri Station is watered by 13 dams.

Improvements include a four-bedroom home, steel sheep and cattle yards, numerous sheds and 100t of grain storage.
