A Long Tradition - A Modern Success

ABOUT WILLANDRA

#Image Willandra is a family owned business with a long history of success. The original Willandra Merino Stud was established west of Hillston, NSW, in 1886 and was based on Wanganella F. No. 83 and Tasmanian bloodlines believed to be from Belle Vue.

In 1974, the Willandra Stud was purchased by the Wells family and they have proudly continued the tradition of breeding hardy, well-balanced fertile sheep carrying big fleeces of quality wool for more than four decades. Keeping abreast of current marketing and production trends and continuing to develop and improve the modern Willandra Merino bloodstock is of paramount importance.
