The Australian Pastoral Group, set up by former Macquarie Pastoral Services managing director Alan Hayes is looking to sell Deltroit Station at Wagga Wagga.

The group bought the 2,545 hectare station in 2013 for  $15.5 million from the former Lumley Insurance chairman Anthony Crichton-Brown.

Three generations of the Richardson family developed Deltroit over 100 years, creating a commercial Shorthorn herd and fine wool Merino flock.

Set east of Wagga Wagga in Mundarlo, midway between Sydney and Melbourne, the farm has the capacity to home over 30,000 dry sheep.

The estate comes with a 1903 Federation brick homestead designed by architect William Nicon along with a stone-built, modernised four bedroom Cobb and Co. coaching in,, The Junction Hotel.

In 1963, Robert Kleberg, president of US company King Ranch, purchased Deltroit and its entire herd for internationally renowned King Ranch Group.

Upon Kleberg's death King Rach sold all its Australian properties in the late 1970's.

The farm is available through Inglis Rural Property - Randwick agents Sam Triggs and Jamie Inglis.
