About CP


Cassilis Park is situated near the small town of Cassilis in the Upper Hunter, and is ideal country for sheep, cattle, horse and cropping enterprises. Cassilis Park incorporates a number of these enterprises including the Merino Stud, Horse Agistment, Horse Oats and a Performance Horse breeding program. Cassilis Park is owned and run by the Armstorng family; Cam and Winks, James, Emma and Annabel.

Cam Armstrong is the second generation to live at ‘Wirroolga’ and has carried on the strong family tradition of merino breeding. Winks comes from a farming background in NZ and has many years of involvement in equestrian sport. In the late 1990’s she developed a substantial horse Agisting business on ‘Wirroolga’.

He returned to Cassilis Park in 2009 after some oversees travel. James and Cam now manage the farm together.
