SUPERBLY located in the heart of South Gippsland, Amberley Park offers 265 acres of gently undulating country.
Malcolm and Carol Cock purchased the Hallston property in 2006 and relocated their successful Galloway and Buchan Black stud to the property.
“Assessing farms for clients wishing to purchase a property, is one of my consulting services, so I had a long and detailed check list when purchasing Amberley Park,” Malcolm said of the family’s decision to move the operation to Hallston.
“Having farmed for a long time in a
relatively dry climate, the Hallston reliable high rainfall was number one and a permanent water supply number two.
“I didn’t want to farm in a rice paddy, so having free draining soils and a great all weather laneway system … ticked a number of boxes.
“I was also after a farm that was easy to manage and productive.
“Hallston was also a very central position for servicing a lot of my beef and consulting clients, as well as short trips to the beach at Inverloch.”
The Cocks have meticulously maintained and cared for Amberley Park.
Amberley Park offers an all-weather laneway system through the heart of the farm with most of the 44 paddocks accessed off it.
Water is abundant and a major feature of the property with a permanent creek and spring fed dam; Amberley Park also has a reliable trough system to each paddock.
Amberley Park is picturesque and well sheltered with some natural bush (approximately 11ha), shelter plantations, and scattered gums.
Fencing is in good order and consists of permanent electric fencing with most boundaries to neighbours double fenced and treed for bio-security.
Around 98 per cent of the land is accessible by tractor.
