Gulf Station in Yarra Glen is one of the most original timber farms left in Australia. The complex which was built in the 1850s is home to an historic homestead and original buildings like the barn, schoolhouse, butcher shop and dairy. Join Tania, from Do The Yarra Valley for a quick video tour.
It’s pretty hard to beat a sunny Autumn afternoon spent strolling through a historic homestead, watching blacksmiths at work, men chopping wood, children blowing bubbles and enjoying a hot cuppa accompanied by a fluffy scone topped with local strawberry jam and fresh cream. If that sounds good to you then brace yourselves for some bad news. Gulf Station is currently closed for renovations. The good news is, it’s re-opening later this year and will be much improved with the homestead being reinterpreted and Yarra Glen’s original school house being restored.
