    History of Wool in Australia

    The homestead was begun as an experimental working farm and a place where Merino sheep flocks were kept. It turned out to be a very a successful attempt at pioneering the Australian wool industry.

    Today, the Australian Merino as a breed has not only the finest wool of any sheep breed, but also has meat capabilities. The wool is fine and crimpy as well as white.

    Visit

    At present, the Homestead is only open to organised tours while the restaurant is closed for renovations. See their website for further details and the latest details:
