The Winten name is synonymous in Queensland history, with our ancestor James Winten having arrived on the shores in Sydney NSW on the 22nd of November 1817 as a convict.
The family's rural and racing interests are well documented in Queensland. They originally settled in and around the Mitchell districts buying and developing a number of renowned large cattle and sheep properties.
My immediate family lived on the Darling Downs and ran a mixed farming enterprise until retirement. I completed an apprenticeship in diesel and heavy earth equipment, then ventured into the property industry at the age of 25.
I am a licenced real estate agent and auctioneer, have been involved in all facets of the industry working for private and public companies mostly on the eastern seaboard.
