Snowy River block for sale

The Merrijig site made famous in The Man From Snowy River.

Postscript: this property has now sold. Read that story here.

The Merrijig site made famous as Harrisons Homestead in 1980s movie The Man From Snowy River is for sale.

The High Country block at 4/582 Buttercup Road isn’t carrying a price guide.

On 40.5 hectares behind a post and rail entry, it contains three paddocks, four dams, established trees – and captures views of Mt Buller, Mt Sterling and Delatite Valley.

The offering doesn’t include a dwelling (Harrisons Homestead was a prop).

Pat Rice and Hawkins’ Matt Childs with Ruralco’s Danni Schneider are closing an expressions of interest campaign on October 17.

About 210 kilometres north east of Melbourne, the precinct, with a population of about 700, last made headlines a year ago when it was named as having Victoria’s best tasting water (story continues below).

The auction board outside 3 Dagonet Street (The Castle) last year.

Two Castle homes have sold too

Last July, the Strathmore home made famous in 1997 film The Castle sold for $40,000 to the owners of Beechworth’s former Mayday Hills asylum, who are intending to repurpose it as a tourist accommodation venue.

The land it sat on – 3 Dagonet Street, abutting Essendon Airport – has been subdivided to make way for townhouses.

The Bonnie Doon property which also featured in that movie became a holiday rental named Serenity after it was made famous.

At 3491 Maintongoon Rd, it has traded too: in 2006 for $169,950 and again in 2015 (for $200,000). Bonnie Doon is about 25 kms south west of Mansfied.
