Elizabeth Macarthur was one of the more fascinating and unusual characters in early Australian history. With her husband, John, she gave the Australian wool industry a kickstart, running their large merino farm while John was away in England.
The lovely sandstone building surrounded by gardens is now a museum run by the Historic Houses Trust. Visitors are encouraged to wander the rooms, touch the furniture, try the featherbeds and generally behave as if they are guests of the family.
