Fires near us

The Nangarin Vineyard Estate is a combination of prestigious homes and vineyards located approximately 3 minutes from the centre of Picton, 100kms South West of Sydney, NSW.

The estate is the region's first residential vineyard project and one of the most popular rural residential concepts in Australia. Here the rural environment is carefully protected by a community management statement controlling building style, size and materials, and the positioning of the homes on their large rural lots. Relics of the area's history have been retained and sit comfortably among the estate's community facilities. The vineyards also link Nangarin to its past - Picton being the location where wine grapes were first grown in NSW.

This web site is to inform the residents about all aspects of the estate and activities that occur within the estate. It is also meant to make non-residents aware of the unique qualities of the estate.

Bushfire awareness: (updated for 2017/18) This spring and summer looks like being very hot and dry. Please visit the RFS site at which contains everything you need. This includes your bush fire survival plan and other applications. Download the most recent version of a survival plan template here!. Also here is a RFS list of current incidents within NSW where you can also enter the 2571 post code for local information. Finally NSW RFS have a series of phone apps which might be very useful for monitoring local fires, or just use the App. store to look for "Fires near us". Remember we lost a house in the estate in October 2006 from a bushfire so preparation is very important.
