Property Details

"ARNDILLY" 662 Tullymorgan Road Lawrence, NSW 2460



Mixed Farming Sold - Lawrence NSW



Twenty-six years ago our vendors went through a very thorough benchmarking process to hand-pick a productive rural property to purchase. Key factors they considered were: carrying capacity/production levels, seasonal adaptability of the country, capital growth/subdivision potential, and location; the property needed to be convenient to a town centre and schools.
They settled on “Arndilly”, a large acreage property on the NSW North Coast with rolling hills and fertile flats; and the lifestyle advantage of having a number of beaches within 40km of the front gate. Operated as a profitable family farm for the past 26 years, retirement age is now looming, and “Arndilly” is being offered to the market for sale.
Please see below information, flick through the photos, and watch the video to gain a more thorough understanding of the property. Phone JoJo Newby of Farrell McCrohon Stock & Station Agents on 0417 690 637 to discuss further.

“Arndilly” totals 1237.45Ha/ 3057.80 Acres of Freehold land, plus 46.26Ha/114acres Leasehold land. With an outstanding balance of country, the property is undulating, though not steep. Fertile alluvial flats are coupled with red clay loam ridges and valleys, providing the perfect balance of high & low country to not only survive, but to thrive, through times of both drought and flood. At least 50% of Arndilly is arable, and would suit a range of other agricultural pursuits, such as Macadamias, tea tree, or lemon myrtle. There has been minimal chemical usage during our vendor’s tenure.

Situated on the NSW North Coast, 35 minutes from the main township of Grafton, Arndilly is anything but ‘remote’, unlike many other substantial farms. There is a preschool and infants/primary school within 10km, High Schools within 30mins, and the coastline is within 40km of the front gate. Arndilly is situated 1hr 30mins from Byron Bay, and 3hr 30mins south of Brisbane. Access is via bitumen roads, then the council-maintained Tullymorgan Road, which is a gravel road. “Arndilly” is located within the Clarence Valley Council district.

Absolute water security; proven throughout the drought. Frontage to Broadwater Creek and double frontage to Filan’s Creek. Water pumped off-peak from the permanent fresh water creek to header tanks, and gravity-fed to stock troughs in the paddocks and cell centres. There are also a number of dams on the property.
Arndilly has an annual average rainfall of 1150mm per annum.

Conservative carrying capacity: 450 cows and calves plus replacement heifers.
The property is lightly stocked now, currently running 310 cows plus calves + 60 PTIC heifers + 75 replacement heifers.
It is worth noting that the only supplementary feeding undertaken at Arndilly is during the weaning process; the vendors have not fed cattle throughout any seasonal events.
Arndilly Pastoral were named as Vendor of the Year at the Grafton Regional Saleyards in 2011, a true testament to the types of cattle produced on the property. At the 2021 Grafton Feature Weaner Sale & Show, “Arndilly” was awarded as presenting the Best Pen of Bos Indicus Infused Heifers for the entire sale.

Arndilly has established subtropical pastures, with a mix of native and introduced grasses, including setaria, various types of paspalum, carpet grass and numerous wetland species. A majority of the open country is cleared with good stands of shade trees.

First homestead: brick house with large living area, one bathroom and three bedrooms. Secondary homestead: brick house constructed in 1996, has two bedrooms and one bathroom. One worker’s cottage plus a converted dairy building. Two large machinery sheds + workshop, hay shed, sheltered feeding area, steel stockyards with covered vet crush. Established laneways and cell grazing system with electric fencing.

Arndilly boasts numerous Titles with extensive Council Maintained Road frontage, which presents a huge opportunity for future subdivision.

The two homes, the workers cottage, and the workshop shed are connected to mains power. There is mobile phone reception, landline phone and internet.

“Arndilly” has only been offered to the market twice in the space of 60 years, which is a testament to the combination of lifestyle, productivity, manageability, and seasonal adaptability of the property.
