Old Bonrook Station Homestead

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Old Bonrook Station is an example of an early timber framed corrugated galvanised iron building which was common in the Northern Territory from 1897-1937. It is of lightweight construction with no ceiling or wall linings and was described as an ‘oven’ by the Chief Health Officer of the period. This type of structure was easily dismantled and moved as needs demanded. The building is one of only a few in Pine Creek over 100 years old and demonstrates the streetscape of Pine Creek for over a century. The building has been associated with a number of well known identities, the best known being explorer and pastoralist Alfred Giles who built the homestead.
