History

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.
