Home Movies – Mooramong

60 Objects Mooramong Collection

These charming home movies were taken by Claire and Scobie MacKinnon and feature their honeymoon and life at Mooramong.

Claire MacKinnon nee Adams was a famous silent movie star when she married Scobie, and came to live with him in Victoria.  Their property Mooramong, in Skipton country Victoria, was redecorated by Claire into a fashionable country retreat, but it remained a working sheep farm.  The couple loved entertaining their friends at their homestead, hosting weekend parties.  They also shared a love of animals. Both of these enthusiasms were well documented in their home movie and photographic collections.
