Former prime minister Malcolm and his wife Lucy Turnbull didn’t find a buyer during their midweek online auction of their Hunter Valley property, Scotts Creek.

It ended on a $6 million vendor bid. Meares & Associates agent Chris Meares had expected the two-day auction to attract several bids of between $6.5 million to $6.75 million.

The 2000ha farm, 330km from Sydney, has had a history of running merino sheep and breeding quality beef cattle.

The Murrurundi property is in the foothills of the Liverpool Ranges just north of Scone.
