Iconic Tongy Station

A rare opportunity to acquire the historical and prestigious Tongy Station has now arrived. It is widely considered as one of the finest properties in the district for its deep rich black soils, high level of productivity, water system and its historical Victorian sandstone homestead.
It was described in 1832 that “the land between Turee Creek and the Talbragar is said to be throughout; of the richest soil; there not being, perhaps in the whole Colony, so large a tract of unexceptionably good land”.
Tongy is professionally managed by Mutual Trust with a clear plan to raising the carrying capacity through an ongoing pasture and fencing renovation program. The management team continues to convert native grasses to productive and balanced pastures through grazing, slashing and direct seeding. The emphasis has been on fodder conservation with the primary use of the crops for livestock and only harvested for grain when seasonal conditions have been right.
Tongy is watered by the Talbragar River and Turee Creek running through the full length of the property along with a 74meg water entitlement for irrigation. Tongy has 10 bores which deliver water via windmills and solar pumps to holding tanks then gravity fed to concrete troughs.
Tongy is in superb condition and is presented to the market at a time with the world focusing on food security and protein. The rising demand for Australian agriculture for its reputation for premium quality, healthy soils and pristine water makes the timing of this purchase ideal.

History of ‘Tongy Station’
Tongy dates back to the 1820’s, when Richard Fitzgerald, an ex-convict who arrived on the third fleet, was lead to Tongy by local Aborigines. In 1825 he was granted freehold title of Tongy by Governor Bourke for his services to the colony through Agricultural management. W. L. Baillieu, related to one of the oldest families in Victoria, purchased Tongy in 1920's from Richard Fitzgerald’s five granddaughters and it has remained in the Baillieu family to this day. A remarkable history of continued succession and fortune.
