Mooramong's Story

Built in the early 1860s and remodelled in 1938 to reflect the Hollywood style, this homestead elegantly echoes the lifestyle of D.J.S (Scobie) Mackinnon and his Hollywood screen star wife Claire Adams.

Mooramong is still run as a working farm of 3,854 acres in total and carries 5,000 merino sheep and produces a range of cereal crops.

The homestead feels like a lived in home with the photographs, furniture, curios and objects d'art as they were left by the Mackinnons invoking memories of the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

The Mackinnon Nature Reserve has become one of the leading centres for the re-establishment of the endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot. There are self-guided walks of the reserve for visitors.

Opening hours

The homestead is available for group tours by appointment.
