Property History and Information
The current owners have been on the property for 5 years. Many years ago it was open farming land before becoming a pine and hardwood plantation.
Bombala #2 is a beautiful mountainous property with amazing views and sunsets. Gorgeous bush ranging from older gullies to regrowth of hardwood abounds, with the gullies being quite rainforest like in some areas. Hopping Joe Creek divides the property and runs during periods of rain with beautiful ferns at its banks. This beautiful block just off the Monaro escarpment looks coastally rather than toward Monaro country.
The abundant deer love this habitat and the many pigs enjoy the waterholes and wallows.
When the family comes along with hunters, they can relax by the waterhole, picnic, read, pat the horses, or use the surroundings as inspiration for art or photography. They can bushwalk and beach walk as the beach is only 1hour away. Beautiful Rockton Falls are also nearby and easily explored by car along with other scenic drives.
This property is 35km from Bombala.
