The Quiet Elegant Architecture Of A Slab Hut Tour and Talk

''Do not judge a book by its cover'' they say... This special tour discusses the influences, style and sustained preservation of this Historic National Trust property that is the picture of humble grandeur.

Architecturally, there is a quiet elegance hiding behind Dundullimal Homestead’s slab hut façade (one of the nation’s oldest) and weathered roofing.

Its transition and growth through many owners and more decades exposes it as a revered building and a comfortable social gathering place.

Substantial without grandeur, innovative without trickery or embellishment, Dundullimal Homestead has emerged from 170 years of growth and of reduction as a building worthy of national note.

Tour, discuss and explore the preservation of a building which reminds us of the past and informs us of who we are.
