Gulf Station Farm

Take your students on a farm experience from the past!

Home of the Bell family, successful pastoralists in Yarra Glen. The farm supplied produce to miners in the district from the 1850s to the 1950s.

Gulf Station tells an exciting story about the daily life on a pioneer farm, with an array of farm buildings and animals waiting to be discovered. 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, for both food and transport.
