Dates of existence

1833 – 1972


Warrah was acquired by the Australian Agricultural Company in 1833 and was originally managed by W Telfer 1832-1836. In 1864 under the new General Superintendent, E C Merewether, and the Warrah Manager, Samuel Craik, the Australian Agricultural Company began development of the Warrah Estate for sheep breeding and invested heavily in wells, bores and fencing. The Warrah Estate was divided into two sections: East Warrah (122,600 acres) and West Warrah/Windy (127,000 acres). In 1912, 1923 and after World War II areas of land on the Warrah Estate were sold and resumed by the New South Wales Government due to closer settlement movements. The Warrah homestead and adjoining areas in The Highlands and south east corner were sold in 1972.
