40 kilometres east of Armidale, 2 hour from Coffs Harbour.

Country, Soils & Pastures

Predominately trap soils, with some basalt and granite. Pastures include introduced species and have been regularly fertilised for over 20 years. The country is mostly undulating, with some steeper areas to the south. Elevation above sea level ranges from just below 900 metres to about 1020 metres.

Water Security

“Maralinga” enjoys double frontage to the Chandler River, just before it plunges into the gorge to join the Wollomombi River on its way to the coast. There are also 26 paddock dams, plus access to the Oaky Dam. Rainfall is about 875mm annually.


Four bedroom, weatherboard home with new kitchen, separate living areas, large laundry, set in a garden overlooking the Chandler River. There is a 3 bedroom cottage in the same grounds, in addition to shearers’ quarters and an unused workers’ cottage.


Hinge joint or netting is used throughout the internal and boundary fencing. There are 16 main paddocks.

Sheds & Yards

3-stand raised board woolshed of timber and steel construction (built 1998); sheep yards; timber and cable cattle yards; second set of steel cattle yards; new 3-bay steel and timber shed; double garage; carport and workshop with concrete floor; new 3-stall stable and tack room complex.


Located in the favourable eastern fall of New England, “Maralinga” has been carrying over 350 cows and their followers for many years. Further pasture work may improve this, capitalising on the property’s healthy fertiliser history.
