Early farming years

PIALLIGO ESTATE IS LOCATED ON THE BANKS OF THE MOLONGLO RIVER. LONG USED BY THE NGUNNAWAL PEOPLE, THE RIVER CORRIDOR WAS FIRST SETTLED BY EUROPEANS IN THE 1820S WHEN INTENSIVE AGRICULTURAL USES COMMENCED. A PIALLIGO LOCAL WAS REPUTED TO HAVE SAID “THE SOIL IS SO GOOD, YOU COULD GROW GOLD SOVEREIGNS IN IT — IF YOU KNEW WHERE TO FIND THE SEED”.

THE FAMOUS FERTILE RIVER FLATS HAVE BEEN PRODUCING FOOD FOR THE CANBERRA DISTRICT EVER SINCE.

NOW PIALLIGO ESTATE, WITH ITS 800 METRES OF RIVER FRONTAGE AND 28 HECTARES OF DEEP SANDY LOAM CONTINUES THE TRADITION OF PRODUCING THE FINEST PRODUCE FOR THE REGION TO ENJOY.
