Lot 1 - The Block


‘Herdale’ was purchased by the Fiebig family in 1928 and was added to over the years to include ‘Box Hill’ and ‘The Block’ for a total of 1,277 acres.

'The Block' is a highly productive parcel of land located on the northern side of the Survey Road approximately 10 kilometres south of Melrose and approximately 8 kilometres west of Murray Town. With a total area of 329 acres approximately this is a self-sufficient allotment with water supplied via the permanent spring.

The land comprises a mix of hills grazing and heavy rich flats with approximately 100 acres arable and has a good mix of natural grasses and sub clover which provides excellent stock feed all year round.    

The Block is well fenced with the land predominantly comprising healthy brown clay loam soils with the topography consisting generally of rolling hills and lower lying flats with a permanent spring which provides water to the creek located towards the southern end of the property.

Improvements to the property include steel sheep and cattle yards with ramp as well as a small implement/hay shed located adjacent the cattle yards.

As a Whole

The land predominantly comprises healthy red/brown clay loam soils well suited to cropping and hills grazing. The property as a whole is well improved with two 4-bedroom homesteads, modern raised board shearing shed with yards, implement shedding and cattle yards on each Lot. Water is supplied via underground water and dams as well as a permanent spring which traverses ‘The block’. This property offers scale and would make for an excellent add on to an existing farming operation or investment. Rarely is a farm of this scale and quality offered to the market within this tightly held location. The property is being offered for sale as a whole or in 3 contingent Lots.
