A fascinating colonial home containing an unparalleled collection of original furnishings and items of historical interest covering 160 years of Australian history. It is a lived in family home, not a museum. Built as an inn on the road to the goldfields, and then serving up to 1883 as a private boarding school for the “sons of gentlemen”, the homestead today is the private home of the Hume family, descendants of the explorer Hamilton Hume.
Guided tours through the home are provided by members of the family who explain its history and the stories behind its many treasures. The homestead is set in beautiful grounds suitable for picnics and morning/afternoon teas. Bed and breakfast accommodation is available by arrangement.
A visit to Garroorigang is a step back in time and fascinating for all ages. Coaches and groups by appointment.
