"Sunnyside", Hillgrove, 2350

New England Eastern Fall Grazing

Area 967 Hectares
Beds 7 Bedrooms
Rainfall 934mm


With a superb location 44 kilometres east of Armidale, “Sunnyside” is true Eastern Fall grazing, bordering on to gorges east and west.

In contrast to the rugged terrain through the fence, “Sunnyside” comprises 967 hectares of undulating prime New England trap soil with some basalt.

Much of the property can be described as “park-like”, while pockets of native timber along gullies and low ridges offer wonderful natural shelter belts.

Fencing throughout the property is excellent, and with 40 paddocks grazing pressure can be easily and effectively managed. Each paddock is serviced by at least one dam.


There are 3 dwellings on-site:

4 bedroom “Red House”, 3 bedroom “White House” and the two bedroom “Cottage”. There are other stunning locations that may be considered for establishing a more substantial, perhaps off-grid, dwelling.

Operational improvements include a concrete-floored machinery shed a machinery/feed shed, a grain silo, a 3-stand woolshed with sheep yards, steel cattle yards and a smaller set of cattle loading yards.

Pastures & Rainfall

Pasture development on “Sunnyside” may be divided into three categories. Areas with recently introduced species (cocksfoot, phalaris, brome, prairie, plantain, chickory, red and white clovers), areas with fertilised native species, and an area currently in the process of being developed.

Average annual rainfall at “Blue Knobby” 12 km south-west of the property, is 934 mm.

Native timber includes Eastern Stringybark, blue gum, box and Eucalyptus michaeliana – the revered and unique Hillgrove Spotted Gum.


The property is currently run as a beef cattle grazing operation. With its easily traversed terrain, plentiful natural assets (some yet to be developed), sound infrastructure, and superb location, “Sunnyside” will be on the inspection list of those looking for a ready-to-go grazing property, with a bit of upside.

“Sunnyside” is being offered for sale at $7,200,000.
