Gulf Station in Yarra Glen is one of the only original timber farms left in Australia.
The complex, which was built in the 1850’s, is home to an historic homestead and original buildings like the barn, schoolhouse, butcher shop, stables and dairy.
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 you need to get yourself along to Gulf Station as soon as possible.
Gulf Station hosts regular events and activities including Heritage Festivals, Talks, Workshops and Lost Tradition Days where you can see working horses, sheep being sheared, butter being made in traditional churns and wood being worked without using power tools.
