Yallum Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Yallum Park is said to be the best preserved Victorian House in Australia in its original condition. Situated eight kilometres west of Penola on the Millicent Road is the magnificent two story homestead, built for John Riddoch in 1878-1880.

Original wallpapers, gasoliers, acid-etched and stained glass windows, Italian marble mantle pieces, golf leaf, antique furniture and a number of extremely old pieces of glass, porcelain, silver and brass are some of the features. All decorations date from 1879. The garden, established in 1880, is planted with trees from all parts of the world.

Purchased by the Clifford family in 1914, the homestead is still retained as a private farmhouse and is open for public view by appointment. Please call for tour times. Cost and admission times are subject to change.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
