Goonoo Goonoo Station

Thursday, June 06, 2013 | Leave a Comment (3)

Today the station is best known for the outstanding Santas gertrudis prize-winning cows but Goonoo Goonoo (said to mean 'plenty of water') is Tamworth district's most historical and iconic property.

It is one of the earliest settled holdings in rural Australia and was part of the original land grant by King George IV in the British parliament. This property was granted to the Australian Agricultural Company in 1832. The land was selected and surveyed for the company by explorer Henry Dangar and the first stock, 6000 sheep arrived in 1834. 

Goonoo Goonoo itself became almost a village in the 1870's with its elaborate station homestead, post office, school, numerous cottages for employees, accommodation house and woolshed. 

The property was then sold by the Australian Agricultural Company into private hands in 1985. 

On my recent visit to Goonoo Goonoo station I wondered around to see a number of old buildings, which once formed this semi-autonomous village, which still remain. The chapel is to the rear of the homestead (1840). There is a gabled rubblestone store cum post office with brick arches (1853), a large brick woolshed (divided into three gabled sections) on a hill, and a memorial fountain in remembrance of G.B. King, the son of Elizabeth Macarthur and Philip Gidley King. 

I was invited to envision a new era for Goonoo Goonoo Station.
