Jackaroo Jillaroo Downunder, Bingara

5.0
#565 of 714 in Outdoors in New South Wales
Set on 3,000 acres and home to Jackaroo Jillaroo Downunder,Garrawilla is a working property nestled in beautiful hillside country beside the Gwydir River in Bingara—a historic gold- and diamond-mining town with a population of 1,250 people. The town, surrounded by cypress- and ironbark-covered mountains, is situated in the New England area of northern New South Wales, Australia—150km north of the Country Music Capital Tamworth, on the Fossicker's Way; 604km north of Sydney. Bingara is a favourite with anglers and fossickers alike, with gold and sapphires occasionally discovered in the river and local creeks. The region produces fine wool, beef cattle and mixed farming.

Around 250 head of cattle are run on Garrawilla, and 220 horses (give or take a few) at any given time. Horse-breeding is a significant part of Garrawilla's business with stock consisting of Shire, Percheron and Clydesdale cross-breeds—known for their exceptionally quiet nature and being easily broken and educated. The breed has become extremely popular for eventing, competitive dressage and jumping, pony club mounts, trail-riding and carriage horses. 125 foals will be born this Spring on Garrawilla, with these horses used in Jackaroo Jillaroo Downunder's trail-riding activities or offered for sale.
