Newington Farm is set upon 60 acres of rich soil along Canungra Creek, at Biddaddaba - an hour's drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Originally a Warmblood stud, the property has been rested from horses for some 15 years - providing clean country for our client's thoroughbreds for the future. Major capital infrastructure and pasture improvement has been undertaken to ensure Newington Farm offers the best possible environment for high quality racehorse to spell and agist here. Ample water and rainfall, annual pasture improvement and irrigation where required allows the farm to cater for local and interstate horses of the highest calibre.
The property is named after 'Newington House', the original Blaxland settlement farm in Australia, developed and built by brothers John & Gregory Blaxland in 1807. Julian's fourth great-grandfather Gregory, went on to lead the crossing of the Blue Mountains in 1813, opening up the colony to extensive grazing country to Sydney's West.
Newington Farm has installed 'Horserail' fencing as standard for all 30 paddocks on the farm. This product range - originally designed and developed by John Wall in America has been improved over 20 years and has proven a much safer alternative to traditional wire fencing. Now adopted by major breeding operations Widden & Rosemont Studs - 'Horserail' significantly reduces paddock injuries through its carbon based 'Hottop' and 'Hottcote' wire replacement products. Your horses' safety is paramount at Newington Farm, hence the adoption of this product for our fencing requirements.
