“The home of the King Parrot.”

Permanent Lankeys Creek throughout.


380 Acres (153ha).


Lot 37, 41 and 138 DP753334.


Situated at Lankeys Creek, via Holbrook, 75kms to Albury-Wodonga, 18kms to Jingellic and 34kms to Holbrook with school bus service.


Built in 2002 under instructions from the current ownership, this carefully planned and well-appointed residence is of rammed-earth construction with 14' ceilings, galvanised Colorbond steel roof and painted concrete floors. The house, built by one of Australia's leading rammed earth specialist Rick Lindsay with builder Trevor Bagley, is constructed using decomposed granite from Khancoban with a “pale sandstone” colour. Features of the house include:

- North-south alignment to maximise internal natural lighting;

- Wood fired underfloor hydronic heating;

- Evaporative cooling;

- Large north-facing deck;

- Four (4) bedrooms and three (3) bathrooms (including ensuite to main); and

- Two (2) wings joined by an enclosed breeze way.

Entry to the residence is via a courtyard between the wings with star jasmine hedges and a basalt path leading to huge double Jarrah front doors. This leads to the large entrance/reception breeze way (aligned north-south) with the wings on either side.

The southern wing comprises side entrance from the carport with mud room, two (2) double bedrooms with external French doors, a smaller bunk room, bathroom and wood boiler.

The northern wing comprises a huge open plan living / dining / kitchen area with 14' ceilings, French doors leading to the large deck on the northern side and a gravelled courtyard shaded by established crepe myrtle trees on the southern side. There are two bedrooms at the eastern end, the master bedroom has ensuite with bath and shower and large walk in robe. The second bedroom can also be used as an office and there is a second family bathroom and wide gallery / laundry / work area running down the southern side of the wing.

The kitchen is a spacious “commercial” style with a central island bench of Murray River Red Gum as a main feature. A large walk in pantry with abundant storage, gas cooker with six burners, dishwasher, and commercial sinks complete the practical and attractive kitchen.

All floors in the living areas are painted concrete, whilst timbers in the home are lime-washed and include Mountain Ash with internal doors of Jarrah and outside posts reclaimed from the Old Albury Wool Store.

The home is cooled by ducted evaporative air conditioning, whilst heating is via hydronic floor heating (wood) plus a Nectre slow combustion stove and overhead fans in two bedrooms and living area.


Well established, low maintenance gardens surround the home. The garden areas vary from gravelled courtyards to established trees and shrubs. The entire garden is water conscious. With a delightful mix of crepe myrtles, crab-apples, pear trees, ornamental grape and citrus. This attractive garden compliments the beauty of the rammed earth residence. Trees and shrubs surrounding the house are all deciduous to minimise fire risk.

A garden is established adjacent to the creek 100m north of the house consisting of fruit trees, olive grove, raised garden beds and chicken coop. The garden uses recycled water from a “Talex” recycling septic system.


Situated in the centre of the Lankeys Creek/Coppabella plateau district, “Billinudgel” land divides into two (2) distinct categories being some 120ha of cleared pasture country interspersed with retained “park-like” areas of sparsely timbered native bush land (say 20ha in total) and a further 35ha natural bush. This natural country has been fenced out for ease of management. Natural timber throughout the property including the environmental areas retained in the cleared country include Eucalyptus Mannifera (White Gum), stringy bark, apple gum, red box, candlebark, and both broad leaf and narrow lead peppermint. An outstanding combination of Australian native trees. Soil types range from shale areas to decomposed granite with some areas of loam soils abutting the creek and lower areas.

The whole of the open areas of “Billinudgel” have been pasture improved and modern pastures have been established and maintained by regular inputs of fertiliser.


Subdivided into five (5) main paddocks with management lanes and gateways. The fencing could be regarded as excellent, with most areas in “as new” condition. Creek areas have been fenced out.


Water is an absolute feature of the property with the permanent Lankeys Creek running throughout. Lankeys Creek has been fenced out to allow for revegetation of native flora and fauna. The creek contains platypus, rare white tail water rat, Murray Crayfish, yabbies and trout. The creek provides a rarely available assortment of natural flora. One (1) kilometre of frontage with riparian rights.

In addition to the permanent creek water source, “Billinudgel” offers: • Fully licensed stock and domestic bore; • Four (4) strategically placed catchment dams including a 12ML spring fed dam supporting the vineyard; • 80,000L rainwater catchment tanks for home usage; and • 40,000L tanks troughing as associated with stock water system.

All dams have been seeded with native fish including Murray Cod, Yellow Belly and Silver Perch. The bore water is potable and feeds directly into the house water system as required.


A well-established (1995) Shiraz vineyard of approx. 9ha and comprising some 10,000 vines. The high rainfall, the altitude and the soil types have combined to produce both quality and quantity. A specialist vineyard supported by a drip irrigation system with water sourced from the 12ML purpose built spring fed dam as earlier mentioned. A Hatz three cylinder diesel motor and irrigation pump forms part of the irrigation system.

The quality of the fruit produced is highly recognised with major wineries such as McWilliams, Hungerford Hill and Bidgeebong having purchased same over the years.

A second vineyard of similar Shiraz grape varieties is currently disused but with refurbishment would readily again form part of the vineyard operation.


Extra accommodation/old style accommodation is fully self-contained and comprises one/two bedrooms, kitchen and living areas. Amenities include wood heater and slow combustion stove plus verandah area. Set in beautiful natural surrounds with power and water connected.

Steel cattle yards with crush and open faced machinery shed.


“Billinudgel” residence is situated some 800m from the main entrance and the whole area immediately associated with the residence is not visible from the main road entrance which allows for absolute privacy. “Billinudgel” is accessed via a ford over the Lankeys Creek and thence a blue metal all weather driveway proceeds to the entrance to the “Billinudgel” residence precincts. The driveway proceeds through a semi-permanent creek area of attractive native timber and includes:

• An olive grove of approx. eighty (80) trees (Queen of Spain, Manzanilla and Kalamata varieties); • Five (5) oak trees and two (2) hazelnut trees have been inoculated with truffles and are in separate fenced off area; • A variety of fruit trees including apples, peaches, pears, plums, figs and citrus complete this cottage type orchard.

The upper end of the driveway is flanked by an avenue of beautiful Rosa Rugosa roses.


“Billinudgel” is a complete unit smaller farm combining the absolute best of private rural living with income. “Billinudgel” residence is a purpose built home set amid established gardens and surrounds that have been carefully planned and have now matured to be most attractive. The adjacent native timbered areas, the water supply, the bird life, and the flora and fauna are all features that add to the aesthetics of the area.

As regards the income, in addition to the vineyard enterprise, it is suggested that “Billinudgel” has a carrying capacity of some eighty (80) cows and calves or their equivalent. The property would seem to be ideal for either a dry cattle enterprise or a cattle breeding enterprise. The location would appear to be ideal for a small cattle stud. Further viticulture or horticulture could be considered.
