“Allonby” was originally purchased by Anthony and Elizabeth Brunskill. The Brunskill family’s association with Wagga dates back to 1889, when Anthony Brunksill immigrated from England and acquired a farm in Flowerdale. By 1900 he purchased “Allonby” in Forest Hill, becoming the largest wheat growing farm in the district and recognised nationally as being one of the ‘show places’ in the Riverina. In 1907 “Allonby” won the Sydney Mail prize for the best farm in the southern district’. This information is even sign displayed within Brunslea Park’s, Clive Brunskill Memorial Park, Forest Hill a few kilometres from here.
Come and enjoy this historic farm and homestead and its beautiful surroundings. Further cottages will be available within this farm in the near future.
