Monomeith Park at Monomeith, just over 15 minutes from Pakenham, has been listed by the Bourke family after three generations of ownership.

The Bourke family has successfully run sheep and beef cattle on the 228 hectare grazing property.

It is for sale at $24,710 per hectare ($10,000 an acre) through Ruralco Property, Pakenham agent Ray Cullen.

Robert Bourke said his family’s ownership stretched back to 1907 when the run was about 3000 acres running beef cattle and, until the late 1940s, 8000 sheep.

The old woolshed and press are still here.

Sir Sidney Kidman was a great friend of the family and often visited Bourke's grandfather.

The double-fronted weatherboard homestead, built in 1899 and heritage-listed by Cardinia Shire, is surrounded by the sea of flowers in Vivienne Bourke’s garden.
