Development progress for Fairley is going along at a good rate.  Roadworks construction is well underway and storm-water pipes are being laid.  


Barton Highway intersection works will commence in mid January 2015 and Council is well underway with the new sewage plant for the Murrumbateman village of which Fairley will be the first area connected.


The childcare site has been purchased and we expect the development application for the centre to be lodged with Yass Council for approval early next year.


60% of the blocks in Stage 1 have been sold together with the Childcare site.  We expect builders to commence construction in April 2015.


Murrumbateman is experiencing unprecedented growth  as many families are looking for larger house blocks at affordable prices.  At Fairley we offer 1200m2 + blocks at lower prices than many Canberra blocks a third of the size.  With a 20 minute commute to Canberra, Murrumbateman provides a great lifestyle alternative on Canberra's doorstep. 

The images below show the construction of the roadworks and storm water drainage.

Bobbie Makin

Local Winemaker, Murrumbateman Winery

Bobbie grew up in the western district of Victoria and Warrnambool. He trained as a chef working in fine-dining restaurants both in Australia and the UK. His winemaking began at Wynn's Coonawarra Estate Winery in South Australia.

Bobbie traveled to the UK and Europe working as a chef in England and Scotland, whilst learning winemaking skills in Europe. Returning to Australia with friends who were from Murrumbateman, Bobbie instantly fell in love with the area.  


After leasing the Murrumbateman Winery Bobbie set out to rejuvenate the vines to produce the best grapes for his winemaking style and is now producing award-winning wines. The friendliness of locals and the close supportive community is what makes Murrumbateman a wonderful place to live and work.

When the weather heats up so does The Poacher's Way, with an exciting calendar of summer-themed events.  With many of the Poacher's Way businesses located in the Murrumateman area, you don't need to go far to spoil yourself.

Held during the month of February, Summerside Festival celebrates everything good about summer in the Canberra region - with dining events celebrating local and seasonal produce, opportunities to taste the best of the region's wines, as well as innovative and exciting performances, events and exhibitions.

This summer, come and discover the region with a lazy long lunch, twilight cinema, an afternoon of live music, master class or sparkling and wine tasting or make a weekend of it and stay a night or two - and finish it all off with evening tapas, a degustation dining experience or an evening horse ride...
