Gulf Station

During your visit to Gulf Station you'll discover what life was like for a family living - and making a living - on the land in nineteenth century Australia. How did they clear and maintain the property without modern machinery? Keep food? Transport produce to market? Wash their clothes? Meet some of the farm animals which were vital to pioneer farmers, both for food and transport.

Gulf Station will be open for a special Heritage Festival event – Parcels from Home – on Saturday 18 April 2015. Visit the Heritage Festival website for more information.

Established in the 1850s, Gulf Station was farmed for nearly 100 years by the Bell family. Scottish settlers Agnes and William Bell were the first to lease the land upon which the property was established. From the 1850s to the 1950s, it supplied produce to gold miners of the district.

The National Trust acquired stewardship of the property in 1976, and has restored its buildings and cottage garden.
