Tarndwarncoort Polwarth Wool

This property is a fine example of how the "Western District" farmer used to live.

The Homestead is original and truly a grand example of colonial Architecture.

Wendy & David Dennis run a Polwarth sheep and wool growing enterprise on their historic Birregurra property 'Tarndwarncoort', established 1840, in Western Victoria. Polwarth sheep were developed by Richard Dennis at Tarndwarncoort in 1880, by crossing Saxon Merino sheep from Tasmania with Victorian Lincoln sheep. This progeny was then joined back to the Merino and breed to a fixed type. These un-mulsed sheep were named after the local electorate of Polwarth and are Australia's first breed of sheep.
