Set across 580 hectares, 15 minutes from the historic township of Uralla and only 40 minutes from Armidale, Blackbutt is a conservation agriculture property where you can undertake your passion for a sustainable farm while protecting vitally important Box Gum Grassy Woodland.
Taking its name from the (Western) New England Blackbutt, Eucalyptus andrewsii, which is a magnificent tree that can grow up to 20m tall, Blackbutt has all the allure of a romantic mountain escape.
And while it possesses native species richness and a good diversity of vegetation types, it is not only the 200m variance in altitude that makes Blackbutt spectacular, but rather the breathtaking views to the Honeysuckle and Moonbi Ranges to the west that will steal your heart. It is almost as if you are standing on top of the world.
There is more than 50% native understorey component present and with the right grazing pressure could help facilitate the growth of a complete overstorey in the longer term.
Koalas have been sighted around the property and with numerous rocky outcrops, there is a strong indication of the presence of the threatened Border Thick Tailed Gecko.
Blackbutt has easy 2WD access from council maintained roads, good water availability with some 29 dams, 2 house sites (STCA), a shearing shed in good order and mains power on the property boundary.
