Separate owners of two South Australian farm properties for more than a century have made the decision to sell.
The first is near Quorn in the shadow of the Flinders Ranges and six hours travel time away in the south-east is the second, at Parrakie.
The spectacular Quorn farm covers 5128 hectares and is being offered in four lots after being owned by the Stokes family for between 84 and 114 years.
The Parrakie mixed farming block is on 412ha and is for sale for the first time in a century.
The Quorn group of properties - Blue Hills 2419ha, Hills 2174ha, Top Place 440.1ha and Long Paddock 94.5ha is offered by sale by Nutrien Harcourts.
Blue Hills is on the Wilochra plain, 21km southeast of Quorn, and is split into eight main and two holding paddocks.
The paddocks were refencing within the last two decades and listed improvements include three-stand shearing shed and yards.
Three main bores and three dams service the whole property.
Blue Hills has been used for the Merino breeding program running 600 ewes and 400 replacements average over a long period.
Hills is 21km north of Quorn and is said to have some of the most spectacular scenery in the southern Flinders Ranges.
It offers commercial grazing, a lifestyle escape and even a tourism business.
The vendor has been operating a 4WD self-drive and camping business there.
Top Place is 23km from Quorn in the picturesque Arden Vale valley with the gum lined Mount Arden Creek running through the property.
