National Trust Open Day – Gungahlin Homestead

A rare opportunity to visit Gungahlin Homestead, a 19th Century grand English style residence in Canberra. There will be tours of the building, refreshments and a range of activities for young and old. Soldier On, the current tenants of the Homestead are our co-hosts for this event.

Gungahlin Homestead is a former pastoral property dating from the 19th century. The
Homestead was built in two major stages – a rendered brick Georgian house built in
1862-65 and the grand sandstone Victorian addition of 1883 by Edward Crace.

Soldier On, the current tenant of Gungahlin Homestead, is our partner for this Open
Day. Soldier On supports those who have served by focusing on their physical and
mental health, their community and their future.
