Lanyon Homestead is one of Australia’s premier historic properties. Set at the foot of the Brindabella Ranges on the banks of the magnificent Murrumbidgee River; you will enjoy gorgeous views of the Australian countryside during your visit. The precinct’s centrepiece, the 1859 Homestead, has been beautifully restored and furnished.

Enjoy a guided tour of the homestead and explore the outbuildings that made this pastoral property a showpiece in the region. Picnic in the garden with a view to the hills beyond the Murrumbidgee River or take a leisurely stroll through the rambling gardens surrounding the homestead. Share a meal or light snack at the Barracks Espresso Bar and Eating House.

School and other groups are also catered for with special packages available that include a guided tour with morning/afternoon tea, or lunch included. Function rooms and outdoor spaces are available for hire.
