An Iconic Jewel of Pastoral Australia
— Mudgee Region NSW —
Guntawang is one of Australia’s most notable and historic rural properties located in the picturesque Mudgee Region of NSW. Guntawang sits on the banks of the pristine Cudgegong River and has always held a reputation for producing elite thoroughbreds and fine livestock. It has a long and rich history dating back to the very first land grant in 1821 and was the birth place of Henry Lawson’s mother. Henry Lawson being one of Australia’s most famous poets.
Guntawang’s grand homestead sits on a hill, overlooking the surrounding paddocks and down towards the Cudgegong River. It has recently undergone refurbishments retaining its distinctive Italianate characteristics and features, including impressive marble fireplaces, high 15ft ceilings, wide verandahs with cast-iron pillars and floor to ceiling sash windows.
The homestead is naturally cool in summer and some rooms with reverse cycle air-conditioning. For the colder months there is underfloor heating and stunning fireplaces throughout. The large glass windows and air vents provide ample light and ventilation to the lower cellar level and the main living floor.
Another feature of Guntawang is its access to secure water. There is approximately 3km frontage to the regulated Cudgegong River with 221ML irrigation river water license, ground water irrigation bores (Aquifer), dams, creeks and an average yearly rainfall of 670mm.

Guntawang was once a self-contained community with its own school, post office, church and inn which serviced workers and miners of the surrounding gold fields. A lot of the original buildings remain today and would make an outstanding tourism destination or remain a private estate as it is today.
