The Melbourne property entrepreneur Mark Evans has relisted the historic Perricoota Station at Moama, that sits on the NSW side of the Murray River.

The 120 hectare Perricoota Station is one of Australia's most historic farms. It comes with 1860s homestead.

Perricoota Station was first settled by James Maiden in 1843 and consisted of about 120,000 acres.

In 1846 James Maiden established a punt to operate between Moama and Echuca. In 1865 Perricoota sold to Kirk Goldsborough who in turn sold to "Robertson and Wagner" in the late 1860s, part owners in Cobb & Co., who used it to breed hundreds of their coach horses.

Perricoota was sold in 1899 to F.S. Falkiner & Sons, the world famous Merino breeders, buying 72,642 acres for £250,000.

Until he was aged five, Mark Evans lived in Hay, NSW, where his parents owned motels.

It period features include marble fire places, tessellated tiled floors, high ceilings and hallway.

Its former packing shed which has been converted into function space that can cater for up to 250 people. The old packing shed was once used to sort and pack oranges/grapefruits after it was built around 1925 from Oregon timber.

On Saturday March 7, Perricoota Station is hosting the 1980s Perricoota music festival with entertainment from Sean Kelly of The Models, Brian Mannix of Uncanny Xmen, Scott Carne of Kids in the Kitchen, Ally Fowler of the Chantoozies and the Royce Twins from The X-Factor

The property is set on the Murray River with nearly 2 kilometres of river frontage.

Perricoota Station is on Perricoota State Forest Road.

When it was listed in early 2014 there were $5 million hopes. It has a $4.9 million asking price now through Elders agents Wayne Eeles and Shane McIntyre and Guy Wells at Colliers International Rural.
