The Victorian establishment Baillieu family have listed Tongy Station, at Cassilis near Merriwa in northern NSW.

It has been listed for the first time in almost 100 years, with expectations the 4637-hectare station that breeds Hereford and Merino stock could fetch more than $20 million.

Located on the banks of Talbragar River, the property features a Victorian standstone homestead amid manicured gardens. 

Tongy dates to 1825, when former convict Richard Fitzgerald was granted freehold title of the property by Governor Bourke for his services to the colony through agricultural management. 

Colliers International's Richard Royle is handling the sale with offers due September 14.  

The Baillieu family bought the property in 1923, The Land reported.

It was secured from Fitzgerald's five grand daughters. 

This Australian Dictionary of Biography described Richard Fitzgerald (1772-1840), convict, public servant and settler, as one of the most remarkable men to settle in early New South Wales
