Bundarbo Station, the cattle farm of late media executive Sam Chisholm and his wife Sue, has been listed for sale.
The working farm, considered one of Australia’s outstanding rural properties, is in Jugiong, a small community on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River northwest of Canberra.
The Chisholms are only the second owners of the property since its settlement in the 1840s by the Osborne pastoral family, who sold it in 1995.
