Another well-known estate in the district is Mingay, a magnificent property of 12,500 acres, situated between Gundagai and Cootamundra.
The land is of unsurpassed quality, and is eminently suitable for maize, lucerne, wheat, dairying, grazing and fattening purposes.
Included in the property are 4000 acres of magnificent river flats, equal to any in the Commonwealth, while the rest of the estate is composed of high-class volcanic country.
The estate has a twelve miles' frontage to the Murrumbidgee river, and is most conveniently situated, every part being within easy reach.
The Cootamundra -Tumut rail-way" runs right through, with "Mingay" platform on the estate, and Coolac railway station and Ball Siding on the northern and southern boundaries respectively.
The estate has an average rainfall of 26 inches.
Every block is permanently watered, and the subdivision has been made with the intention of providing for all classes of purchasers, and also with the view of benefit to them of existing improvements.
This magnificent property, comprising 32 blocks, of from 135 to 1250 acres each, will be offered for sale by public auction at Cootamundra, on October 26, at 2 p.m.

It is, however, to be distinctly understood that cash in full payment will be accepted if any purchaser is desirous of settling in this way.
