Clearing sale ends an era for Cathcart family’s farm Wild Willows

Members of the Cathcart family

Members of the Cathcart family gathered for the clearing sale at the former property of Mark and Antoinette Cathcart, Wild Willows, on Friday.

Wild Willows is located between Narrabri and Wee Waa on the Culgoora Road.

The clearing sale, run by Landmark Harcourts and attended by a large crowd, was the final stage in the changeover in ownership of the farm which Antoinette and Mark Cathcart sold to Cotton Seed Distributors (CSD).

Mark and Antoinette bought Wild Willows from Mark’s parents Bill and Anne Cathcart in 1996. Bill and Anne Cathcart had previously owned the property from 1980 to 1996.

The defiant Nationals' deputy leader, who is fighting last week’s federal approval of the planned Shenhua mine, at the weekend gathered more information from locals familiar with the Whitehaven coal operation.

Inland Rail

Find out more from the inland rail website

Inland Rail will complete the backbone of the national rail freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

It will deliver freight out of the congested Sydney network, saving approximately 10 hours of travelling time.

Trains travelling on this new, more direct route will travel at up to 115km/h and use significantly less fuel.

The 1700km route leverages the earlier investment in the Australian rail freight network following the existing interstate line from Melbourne to Illabo. It then uses a combination of capacity improvements, major track upgrades and new track via Parkes, Moree, North Star, Oakey, Toowoomba, Gatton and Rosewood.
