White Park equine complex is situated in the heart of Scone New South Wales, accessible from Scone Airport, railway station, horse and car.
The entrance to White Park can be found at 100 Guernsey Street, Scone.
It is a requirement in NSW for owners of livestock such as cattle, sheep, goats and pigs to have a Property Identification Code (PIC) when trading or moving these livestock.
A PIC is a unique eight-character number assigned by Local Land Services to properties with livestock. This property registration system allows for the tracing of livestock to assist with disease and chemical residue management.
White Park equine complex is governed by the White Park Development and Management Committee consisting of members of Council and community members. White Park enquiries and bookings can be made by contacting Upper Hunter Shire Council.
White Park itself is steeped in history.
Originally it was part of Kelly’s Farm, the property of sailor Richard Kelly who lost two of his ships while employed under government contract in the early 1820’s and received a grant of 1920 acres in Scone as compensation. Richard Kelly did not have the land for long, before selling it to another local landowner, William Dumaresq in 1833, who was the first owner of the local property "St Aubin’s". Kelly’s farm became part of St Aubins soon afterwards and when Bakewell’s subdivided the old Racecourse Paddock the people of Scone were given the use of the paddock.
