Visit Gulf Station, one of Victoria's most complete group of slab constructed pioneer farm buildings, to hear voices from its past tell how the farm was started and developed. Come in costume to create a 19th century atmosphere! Prizes for best effort. Bring a picnic along, tea & coffee available.
Scottish settlers Agnes and William Bell were the first to lease the land where the property was established. From the 1850s to the 1950s, Gulf Station supplied produce to gold miners of the district. The National Trust acquired stewardship of the property in 1976 and restored its buildings and cottage garden.
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. You’ll discover what life was like for a family living – and making a living – on the land in nineteenth century Australia.
