Overview

Commenced in 1793, Elizabeth Farm has undergone many changes but traces of the original building still survive. The house was constructed for John Macarthur who pioneered the wool industry in Australia. Simple but elegant the cottage is surrounded by shady verandas and became the prototype for the colonial vernacular homestead. The interior is furnished with reproduction furniture, portraits and objects belonging to the Macarthur family; thus providing a rare hands-on museum experience. Devonshire teas and lunches are available in the adjoining tea room. The place is open daily in January.
