Tongy Station, at Cassilis near Merriwa in northern NSW is under offer through Colliers International's Richard Royle.

The offer is being considered by the Victorian establishment Baillieu family who listed the 4637-hectare station with $20 million plus hopes.

Located on the banks of Talbragar River, the property features a sandstone homestead amid manicured gardens which has been their rural retreat for almost 100 years. 

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. 

The Baillieu family bought the property in 1923 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.
