CABARITA — taken from an Aboriginal word meaning “by the water” — is an appropriate name for a farm with frontage to three permanent creeks.
The 270ha property near Holbrook has the Mountain Creek, Ten Mile Creek and Billabong Creek flowing through it.
And it’s not just a reliable supply of water and picturesque surrounds the creeks bring, that impresses, but also highly productive and fertile alluvial creek flats that support excellent pastures for livestock grazing, selling agent Michael Weller said.

The flat to gently undulating topography and well-drained soils were perfectly suited to pasture and hay production and to the breeding and grazing of livestock, Michael said.
The current owners have been successfully breeding Angus cattle and sheep for many years and the property has a total carrying capacity of 200 cows.
As well as the creeks, there are five dams, which means each of the farm’s 12 paddocks has easy access to water or stock. Annual rainfall ranges between 650mm and 750mm.
There is a three-bedroom fibro house, which has not been lived in for several years and in need of some repair.
Additional improvements include a hayshed, two metal silos, old shearing shed, sheep yards and cattle yards.
Cabarita is less than 15km to the west of Holbrook, and is an easy 45-minute drive from the regional city of Albury, in NSW
All community facilities such as schools, hospitals, airport, major retail outlets and recreational activities that would be expected in a regional city of this size are in Albury.
