Most significant sale in Eden-Monaro farming sells off-market

By Lyndsey Douglas

After operating their breeding enterprise in the Monaro for 11 years, owners Rod and Sue Nicholls of Kybeyan Station, Nimmitabel, have sold in an off-market transaction achieving one of the highest prices in the region this year.

Geoff Palmer, a Rural and Agribusiness specialist for Ray White Rural in southern NSW, said the 4000-hectare property was in a high rainfall location, with an elevation of 1000m which created ideal cool climate grazing.

Kybeyan Station, with its carrying capacity of 1000 cows, featured a large homestead, dual frontage to the Kybeyan river, large woolshed and large capacity steel cattle and sheep yards.

“The country is in excellent condition and is carrying a good body of feed,” Mr Palmer said.

The sale will be the most significant so far in the Eastern Monaro region, though agent Geoff Palmer would not disclose the purchase price, as he respected the confidentiality of all parties involved.

However, he did say the domestic buyers of Kybeyan Station will use this as an expansion of existing cattle and sheep holdings.
