Sold As One

Adjoining Historic New England Properties “Fassifern” and “Inverinate”
Sell to Queensland Family

Two branches of the Cameron family separately own the respective properties. Their ancestor, Donald Cameron settled at “Fassifern” in 1869, 155 years ago.

At a total of 3,963 hectares, the property again becomes one of the larger family-owned grazing holdings in the district.

Straddling the Chandler River for over 13km and having the Wollomombi River on the western boundary gives the property superb water security.

Soils and topography ranging from undulating trap soils through to some fine granite hills in the east, plus a central basalt ridge.

The purchasers, a family who hail from Queensland, intend carrying on the wholistic management practices that have been adopted on both properties for about 20 years.

Selling agent, Graham MacDougall of MacDougall Rural Property, took the property to an Expressions of Interest campaign at the end of 2023. “The buyers looked at the properties then, and returned in the new year and decided New England is for them.

“The diversity of soils, the superb water and relatively safer seasons were big drawcards to these properties and our district; not only to this family, but to other potential buyers we showed as well”, Mr MacDougall said.

Mr MacDougall said that in what is a slower market than say 12 months ago, he is very pleased with the result. “It is fantastic that as the Camerons leave, another Aussie family are arriving in our district”, he said.
