Gallop House Open Day

Join us on Saturday 7 January 2023 as we open Gallop House to the public.

A farm that gave a suburb its name. Learn more at the Gallop House Open Day

Gallop House sits within an area known as Nanulgarup to the Whadjuk Noongar people. It is also the site of one of the first farms in the Swan River Colony.

Adam Armstrong took up the 320-acre Swan Location 85 in 1831 and called it Dalkeith Farm after his birthplace in Scotland.

The Gallop family, who took over the property in 1839, turned it into a flourishing market garden. The existing house was built by James Gallop in the 1870s on a portion of the earlier farm.

The property fell into disrepair in the 1950s and was saved from demolition by the Royal Western Australian Historical Society.

The National Trust took over the management of Gallop House in 2009 and today it is occupied by the Prelude Composer in Residence.

The Gallop House Open Day is an opportunity for our members and the public to learn more about this important heritage place, the oldest private residence in the City of Nedlands.

Bookings are essential. Fees apply. National Trust members visit free.
