NSW Rural Real Estate - Northern Tablelands Review

NSW's Northern Tablelands region

Before you decide to buy NSW rural real estate, you need to do research, regardless of whether you're buying a commercial operation or a lifestyle farm. New South Wales has many regions to consider, each with different climatic and geological features. GoRegional takes a close look at The Northern Tablelands, also known as the New England Tablelands

The Northern Tablelands is a plateau and a region of the Great Dividing Range in northern New South Wales. It includes the New England Range, the narrow highlands area of the New England region, stretching from the Moonbi Range in the south to the Queensland border in the north.

The region's average elevation exceeds 1000 metres above sea level, and this altitude results in moderate summer temperatures (rarely over 32 °C). The winters are cold with occasional snowfalls. Winter temperature can get to as low as -10 °C in some regions during frosty mornings.

The Northern Tablelands is a high rainfall region with averages ranging from 650 mm on the western slopes to over 1,200 mm on the east of the range.  About 60% of this rainfall occurs during the summer months.

If you are considering NSW rural real estate because you want to get into the agriculture business, the Northern Tablelands region is renowned from its livestock farming. 90% of the regions farming revenue comes from beef cattle, sheep and wool. Significant smaller industries include forestry, apples and stone fruit, and potatoes.

Some of our favourite farms for sale from the Northern Tablelands are below.
