The Beautiful Mulgoa Valley

A Proud History

Steeped in history, celebrated Fernhill Estate is located on one of the area’s first land grants. It was issued in 1810 by Governor Macquarie to Colonial Magistrate William Cox, whose family had a major influence on the settlement of Western Sydney. The property has a rich equestrian history, having produced winners of the Melbourne Cup in both 1877 (Chester) and 1880 (Grand Flaneur).

Magnificent in stature, the grand homestead was built by 20 skilled Irish stonemasons and over the years it has been painstakingly restored to its former glory. Taking advantage of a range of income-generating opportunities, Fernhill Estate also includes potential to create a restaurant (with approval).

The Magnificent Grounds

Relax and unwind poolside

From the moment you drive through the gates you will feel as if you have stepped into another world, enjoying a sense of peace and tranquility. Four kilometres of driveway bordered by sandstone walls leads you to the homestead through beautifully landscaped gardens dotted with box hedges and towering established trees.

Meander around the idyllic grounds to private seating areas and porticos, recline by the pool or visit the stables. Explore the surrounding bushland, swim in one of the many dams and lakes or hike up to The Rock Lookout and enjoy magical sunset views over the Nepean River.

Leading Equestrian Facilities

Private 2,400m Racecourse

As one of the country’s top equestrian properties and home to many champion horses, Fernhill's excellence is recognised in all three Olympic disciplines – showjumping, dressage and eventing.

It currently offers a range of fine equestrian services in beautiful surrounds, from boarding and agistment packages to stallions at stud and coaching and mentoring programs to suit all levels of horse and rider.

The racecourse is a 2,400 metre track which forms an important part of the property’s character. Gracious European-style stables are set among rolling paddocks with post and rail fencing, shelters and shade trees.

World Class Event Destination

A luxurious getaway

Fernhill Estate has played host to countless events both grand and small and an opportunity exists to continue and even expand upon this offering. The current staff have worked on a vast range of events from concept to execution, bringing many high-profile occasions to life. These include the Mother's Day Twilight Concert with the Penrith Symphony Orchestra and the popular Picnic Race Day.

The homestead, manager’s cottage and groom’s quarters can all be hired out together or individually for a luxe getaway, wedding or the like, providing a lucrative additional income stream. There is also the potential to convert a number of the outbuildings into additional accommodation.
