Upper Hunter Valley, New South Wales

One of the well kept rural secrets within the Upper Hunter Valley of northern NSW, Gibbergunyah is being marketed by well known agents, MacCallum Inglis, Scone, and Sydney rural property specialists Meares & Associates.

Located on the southern side of the renowned Liverpool Ranges in the outstanding rural Kars Springs–Dartbrook area, 23km northwest of Scone, Gibbergunyah is a 1,350 hectare (3,336 acre) well developed holding which has seen management focus in recent years on upgrading existing infrastructure and operating improvements to make it a highly efficient and profitable holding.

Scone, affectionately known as the ‘Horse Capital’ of Australia is a busy township (population 5,500). It is the home of all things equine including the Scone Horse Festival and Race Club, thoroughbred breeding and racing, polo, camp drafting and the Australian Stock Horse Association.
