Genoa Farm has frontage to the Princes Highway around 112km south of Bega, and about halfway between Sydney and Melbourne.
This is "one of north-east Victoria's best rural properties. A highly productive and versatile farm on the doorstep to the holiday playground of Mallacoota, [which offers] great fishing, ocean beaches, lakes and national parks," says agent Glenn Brunette.
"This is a superbly maintained and manicured 192.3 hectare - approximately 477 acres - grazing property in immaculate condition." Around 65 hectares (165 acres) is deep fertile alluvial river flats, while around 95 hectares (235 acres) is made up of improved grazing hill country.

Pasture improved and fertilised, it is fenced into 14 paddocks designed for beef management and Mr Brunette says it has a "high carrying capacity."
You also get excellent cattle yards, large hay sheds, machinery sheds, a dairy/workshop with cool room, and an extensive fully-netted orchard.
There is an "excellent water supply with frontage to the Genoa River, eight dams, natural water holes, and a reticulated trough system with solar pump."
The established family homestead, circa mid 1940s, is "in excellent condition featuring four generous bedrooms, spacious living areas, country-style kitchen opening to sundeck perfect for your morning coffee or barbeque, large rumpus/games room, bathroom, and large covered rear pergola area. The home enjoys a sunny aspect and beautiful views over the property," says Mr Brunette.
"Opportunities like this rarely become available."
Also, "Please note that the recent fires have impacted the hill country of this property however it is quickly being restored and recovering."
