from Pastoral Review, 16 December 1915

Deep regret was felt in Melbourne and through the Riverina at the announcement of the death of Mr. Arthur John Austin, the fourth son of Mr. Albert Austin, Eilyer, Toorak, Melbourne. He died in Melbourne after a short illness. Jack Austin was the son of one of the most prominent figures among the early stud sheepbreeders of Australia, and was a breeder himself of considerable success, being largely instrumental in creating the demand for Wanganella blood in South Africa. For a considerable number of years he owned Murgha Station, Riverina, first in partnership with his brother, Harry Austin, but latterly on his own, where he built up his Merino stud of pure Wanganella strain. About two years ago he bought from Sir Samuel McCaughey part of Goolgumbla, called Neyliona, a freehold property, consisting of some 14,000 acres. He was also part owner of Wanganella and Bringagee Station, Hay. He also had pastoral interests in Queensland. Mr. Austin leaves a widow and four children.
