With just five rooms the homestead which dates from the 1850s offers guests a real taste of classic Australian hospitality. The decor of the homestead pays homage to its history, with headboards made from fence posts and bedside tables covered by wool sacks. Each bedroom opens onto a shaded verandah with views of the surrounding ranges.
